BKA COVID-19 Announcement

03/22/2020 2:11 PM | Sarah O'Neill (Administrator)

In the interest of public health, BKA is currently suspending/postponing all in-person programs and events. We are monitoring the situation and are currently looking into ways we can continue to support our members and the local KAD community remotely/online.

Please, everyone -- be safe, wash your hands, and stay tuned.

In this period of social distancing, there are many ways we can still come together as a community. Consider:

-Buying gift cards to local restaurants and businesses. Be especially considerate of businesses that may have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19, such as Chinese/Asian businesses affected by increased anti-Asian sentiment, restaurants that have traditionally been operated on a dine-in-only model, etc.  

-Making a donation to your local food pantry (Greater boston food bank: https://www.gbfb.org/covid-19-update/)

-Supporting your local artists, creators and makers (who may be facing a sudden reduction or even lack of work):

Boston Artists Relief Fund

Cambridge Artists Relief Fund

-Participating in mutual aid efforts (check out online communities, including city/town-specific groups, college and school alumnae organizations, affinity groups, etc.) to offer direct help to others in your community.

Feel free to add your own suggestions below in the comments!

Also, please take care of yourself and your loved ones!
