Cultural Healing Circles
Opportunities for expression. Opportunities to heal.
At the Multicultural Center of Marin, we support cultural healing circles as a means of developing greater self-care and empowerment among the youth in our community. With the support of bilingual and bicultural staff, we lead young people through these experiences during the school year at Marin County School. Activities include developing and practicing self-care and regulation skills such as mindfulness, meditation, drumming, and yoga. Our workshops and cultural healing circles encourage youth to connect to the natural environment
Marin Rapid Response Network
Mobilizing community support for immigrants.
At the Multicultural Center of Marin, we care deeply about the rights and safety of immigrants in our communities.
We are the lead agency for the Marin Rapid Response Network (MRRN) to safeguard the civil rights of Marin community members targeted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids and will mobilize immediate support for detainees and their families.
The MRRN operates as a 24-hour countywide hotline that local residents can contact when they see or experience an ICE raid. The hotline is staffed by a fully bilingual dispatcher who sends volunteer observers immediately to verify reported events, collect information, and observe whether any civil rights violations take place. Information collected is used to mobilize immediate help when needed and can also support detainees’ legal cases.
Hotline – 415.991.4545 or visit the Marin Rapid Response Network website.

Canal Community Resilience Council Information
Making sure nobody goes hungry.
We believe that no member of our community should go hungry and that we must work together to end hunger in Marin County. In collaboration with the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank, we run a Farm Stand/Produce Food Distribution initiative to provide fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables and whole grains to Marin community residents.
