ABOUT:
We publish a monthly e-newsletter, ROCA, and distribute to our mailing list. ROCA includes timely updates on new programs, events, and grant opportunities. Why “ROCA”? At Maya’s funeral, her friend Ana told a story. We used the story as the inspiration for our newsletter

“This past summer, you and I met up at the Omega Institute so we could hang out and grab lunch. It was a beautiful day, nice weather; really hot but there was a slight breeze. We decided to take a canoe out onto the lake so we had privacy to talk. We guided the canoe to the center and paddled in circles. We wanted to be isolated; just the two of us in the middle of this huge lake. We talked for about three hours, and near the end we decided we needed our own word. A word that could be said when you knew how I felt, and I knew exactly how you felt. So we made up that word by saying random letters back and forth and seeing what we created. I started with R, you said O, I said C, and you finished with A. ROCA . It’s our code word that means, “I hear you, me too, I know how you feel, I’m there for you.” Everyone in this room has something in common. It’s that we all love Maya, we love her family, and we love the community she lives in. On one level or another, we can all find something that connects us. Many of us are feeling the same hurt and overwhelming emotions, so today and in the days to follow, when feelings are being exchanged and you’re at a loss for words, say ROCA and give ’em a smile.”
