In addition to the resources below, the Virtual Bulletin Board is a place where BAX will highlight important holidays, celebrations, social justice resources, and events happening throughout the season. Each month there will be different topics and points of focus which we will unpack and engage in further. There will be creative prompts, playlists, resources and more!
