Peaslee’s 10th annual Community Awards Program Making a Way will be streaming live from our Give Lively page beginning at 6:00 pm on Thursday, November 5, 2020. We hope you will join us to be inspired by the work of Peaslee and our committed community partners. Our event’s new name is inspired by Peaslee’s founding women, who struggled for years to acquire the former Peaslee School, a community asset they were determined to keep as an educational resource. They overcame every roadblock until the keys were finally theirs—yet every penny of what they raised went toward purchasing the building, leaving them with no funds to develop programming. In those early days, the women of Peaslee were “making a way out of no way.” Thirty-five years later, we continue to make a way toward our vision of a just and inclusive community.
