Guidelines for 2017 grantmaking through the Chelsea Community Fund are now available and applications will be accepted until 5:00 pm Tuesday, January 10, 2017. Priorities for funding in 2017 are proposals that identify a community problem and a strategy for addressing it consistent with the Community Fund’s “Vision of Chelsea.”
On November 9, we woke up in a new world - one where a man who spent months publicly attacking immigrants was suddenly in the highest position of power. We were afraid, confused, sad.

It is important for everyone to understand you do have rights when confronted or questioned by police or other officials. You have the right to remain silent, to request to speak to a lawyer, and to make a phone call if arrested. If the police or immigration come to your door, they must have a warrant and you have the right to not open the door until you see the warrant with your name on it.
