Refugee Language Project
The project aims to provide practical solutions that offer hope, healing, and community to many who come from places like Burma, Iran, Somalia, and Sudan who have found refuge here after suffering traumatic events in their home countries and in refugee camps. RLP meets real language needs among refugees, and foster compassionate community in our city.
The League of Women Voters
The League of Women Voters (LWV) is a nonpartisan, grassroots nonprofit dedicated to empowering everyone to fully participate in our democracy. With active Leagues in all 50 states and more than 750 Leagues across the country, we engage in advocacy, education, litigation, and organizing to protect every American’s freedom to vote.
Founded in 1920, the League was a merger of the National Council of Women Voters and the National American Women’s Suffrage Association. Referred to as a “mighty political experiment,” it aimed to help newly enfranchised women exercise their right to vote.
24 Hours in the Canyon
24 Hours in the Canyon is the only simultaneous 24-hour road and mountain bike event in the country. 100% of funds raised go to further fund the 24 Hours in the Canyon Cancer Survivorship Center, which is free for cancer survivors to access during and after their treatment.
The 24 Hours in the Canyon Cancer Survivorship Center, established in June 2015, is a community center available for residents of the Texas & Oklahoma panhandles. The programs and services offered are free for any adult survivor to access during and after completion of treatment. In addition, services are not limited to survivors who receive treatment in Amarillo.
