The Rural Justice Summit, which has always been free for community participation, opens channels of communication between researchers and community members-- including advocates and organizers-- about historic and current struggles for access to resources in the Central Valley.

After our 2016 launch we realized there is a need to continue to host this summit as a place for both conversations and action—the Rural Justice Summit is now a major annual event.

The Summit draws diverse participants from across the State of California and from other states with similar challenges. While our audience is primarily rural Californians, we have had participants from states where rural residents are marginalized and immigration policies have a negative impact.

Mercy's 5K Stroke Awareness Run - We need your help to reach our goal of $100,000 to purchase Dr. Bot!

5K-Main-Content-Photo-19.jpg

Mercy's 5K Stroke Awareness Run is being held on Saturday, May 4th at Mercy Medical Center.

This fun run is held to educate participants on the signs and symptoms of a stroke. All funds raised goes straight into our Primary Care Stroke Program, which was awarded the Gold Seal of Approval from the Joint Commission.

This year’s 5K event will be chip-timed, which means you can have your race results emailed or texted to you when you cross the finish line. The end of the race brings you right to our Family Festival where there will be free health screenings, as well as many family-friendly activities.

For the past five years, we have challenged community groups, businesses, and friends to create teams to participate in the race. We would like to extend that challenge again this year by asking you to form a team of 5 or more participants.

We encourage you to be creative with your team name and outfits for race day. Awards will be given for the team with the most members, the team with the best costume, and the team with the best selfie!

We need your help in bringing a third Dr. Bot to Mercy Medical Center!

In its eighth year of existence, Mercy's 5K Stroke Awareness Run has been a vital source of fundraising for numerous services and equipment for our Stroke Program.

Most notably, funds raised from previous races were used to purchase a second Remote Presence Medical Robot, better known as Dr. Bot. This 5-foot-tall robot is used to assess and diagnose patients suspected of suffering a stroke.

It allows physicians to “beam” themselves into Mercy Medical Center's patient rooms 24-hours a day to diagnose patients and offer medical advice.

Although Mercy now has 2 (two) Dr. Bots on staff, the need for a third robot is critical as the number of stroke activations has been on the rise as well as expansion into using the robots for mental health and psychiatric evaluations.

We need your help to reach our goal of $100,000 to purchase Dr. Bot! We encourage you to check out the many ways below you can get involved below.

Event Description----- Merced County Courthouse Museum will open “The Originals of Yosemite” exhibit on Thursday, March 7 at 5:00 p.m. Yosemite is our most famous neighbor and gives us bragging rights.

Ernest Lowe: Black Migrants to the Central Valley, 1960-1964

Screen Shot 2019-01-18 at 2.18.06 PM.png

Ernest Lowe: Black Migrants to the Central Valley, 1960-1964

Event Description----- Immediately following World War II, more than 30,000 Black sharecroppers migrated to California's Central Valley. Coming from places like Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, and Mississippi, these migrants looked to escape the oppression of new-slavery tenant farming and the Jim Crow south.

These migrants established their communities in the shadows of the giant farms of the Central Valley, but soon found themselves without work as industrial agriculture took root, and mechanization further decimated the number of available jobs. Some migrants migrated again to the coastal cities in search of new opportunities, but others remained.

In the early 1960s, photographer Ernest Lowe visited the Central Valley towns of Pixley and Dos Palos. The photographs showcased in this exhibition are a record of that visit--showcasing communities of single-walled houses with little to no electricity, no roads, no infrastructure.

They tell the remarkable story of those who ventured west in search of a dream, and who were forced to simply survive, and keep dreaming, in the face of poverty, racism, and the broken promise of California. The exhibit will be on display from January 22 through April 5, 2019.

Exhibit reception:

Date: Friday, February 1

Time: 4:30-6:30 p.m.

Location: 2nd floor of the Kolligian Library, in front of the Library Office Suite doors.

Refreshments will be provided.

An original exhibit of the Fresno Art Museum. Sponsored by the UC Merced Library, Arts UC Merced Presents, and the UC Merced Center for the Humanities.
