Stay Home & Stay Safe this Holiday Season

Collective REMAKE is supporting this campaign sponsored by Health Services, Los Angeles Regional Reentry Partnership LARRP, and Christ Centered Ministries , CCM

It is critical to get the word out on Covid Safety at this time, as cases grow in numbers by thousands. Poor communities and communities of color will continue to suffer the most. This holiday we must agree to do things differently for the good of the whole.
