Happy Holidays and Joy in 2014 from all of us at SESEC

Getting ready for our first annual (first monthly??) Holiday Happy Hour last week, the SESEC staff took some time to list some of our top accomplishments for 2013. This is a sOctGenMarmall representation of the many things we accomplished, both as a staff, as a Coalition and as a community. One of the most important things we built this year was community. Our steering committee chair, Vu, recently wrote a great post about community.

OctGenAnitaCheck it out. In the meantime, we’re posting a few photos of our Coalition at work with our new staff, Yalonda, Marcus and Anita. We can’t wait to see what we’ll build together in 2014! Please leave a comment if you have accomplishments to add.
