From the Vault
Back in the day in 2006...the CCC lived in a two story old mailroom located where the new engineering building is now.  We were "On the Move" to an interim space before moving to our permanent home in Price Center East.  A series of programs called "Our Story" was our way of saying good bye to the Cross.  We tagged the building and showed our love and memories of our time in that space.  It was hard to say goodbye, but the CCC is not just about the physical space.  The community followed us in all of our transitions.  We appreciate you all in the care, love, and energy you all bring into the Center.  Regardless of where we live, the CCC will always be a home away from home. 
What stories do you have to tell? Visit our Tumblr and be sure to attach #ccctb20 to any of your social media posts (Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter). Get excited and be a part of our project of celebrating 20 years in the making of CCC love and community. For more information please contact Edwina Welch at ewelch@ucsd.edu.

Film Description: Audience Award, 2013 Los Angeles Film Festival. We would all be so lucky to know a Grace Lee Boggs: activist, feminist, author, speaker, and philosopher. As of this writing she is still socially active at age 98.
