Moving Towards Unity!

Residents and youth of Acosta Plaza Comité, with support from The Center for Community Advocacy (CCA), organized "Las Posadas Navideñas en Acosta Plaza" on December 19th, 2013. In the past 10 years this event had been lost in the community, and being able to bring it back was phenomenal!

The committee organized a fundraising plan by asking surrounding businesses for donations to the community event. Of course, businesses responded well knowing it was their daily costumers asking for support. Amazingly, the day of the event neighbors from Acosta Plaza brought food, hot chocolate, bread, and much more to share with others which provided an incredible sense of community.


Through the combined efforts of residents, Las Posadas Navideñas were able to unite over 500 people. More importantly, this was an opportunity for the community to heal as a collective and see that great things happen when people decide to come together with a great purpose. As a result of this event, new people have decided to join the Acosta Plaza committee in hopes of providing more community events. 

We hope this tradition continues to be a part of the Acosta Plaza community each year!
