As you may know, 2016 will be the last NIA Gathering. We would like to make this a special event commemorating NIA’s long history. To do this, we need maximum participation from community members, past and present board members and anyone who has supported NIA in the past.
We would like to invite you to a Town Hall Meeting on February 13, 2016 at Qulture Collective from 1:00-4:00 P.M. Qulture Collective is located at 1714 Franklin St., Oakland, CA, a short walk from 19th Street BART.
We will be discussing what is needed to produce a phenomenal last gathering (i.e. volunteers, financial aid, vendors and community support). Light snacks and beverages will be provided. We hope to see you there!
INDOOR GATHERING WITH AN OUTDOOR FLAIR
The NIA Board has decided to cancel this year’s annual event (previously known as “The Ball”). Due to budget restraints, planning resources and community support being short this year, we will not be having the NIA Fest. We are looking into moving the event from Late Summer to Early Spring for the 2016 calendar. Go to our website for future updates: www.niacollective.org
We appreciate our membership and look forward to future successful events.
Come party with us – VIP Status
At Pride 2015, NIA has the honor of being one of two selected groups to host a VIP beverage bar. This is our seventh year as a beverage booth host, but our first year as an exclusive VIP vendor.
We will show our pride at the “Party of the Year,” on Sunday, June 28, 2015, at the San Francisco Civic Center Rotunda. SF Pride is our biggest annual fundraiser and community celebration. The money we earn in one afternoon helps to support the rest of our events throughout the year.
If you’d like to join our fun and festive group in 2016, please email Brandy firstname.lastname@example.org
The NIA Gathering is both a rejuvenating annual weekend retreat and a unique opportunity to gather as a community of Black same gender loving women to embrace our vital role as Ritual Keepers and Community Builders.
The NIA Ball is an annual fundraising event for the work we do during the year.
Good people, good food, good fun! Join us!
