Every Tuesday and Thursday morning, COA provides hundreds of families and individuals with food items, through its popular Food Bank! (And this clip shows only a *slow* time during a recent Food Bank). #COA #LongBeach #LBC #TheLBC

Please join us for the Long Beach Playhouse production of “Silent Sky.” This is a fundraising event. It is because of you, and your support we can continue our work. Please show your support by joining us on April 11th at the Long Beach Playhouse to support COA and enjoy a fantastic play at the same time. Synopsis: In this true story of Henrietta Leavitt, an early 20th century astronomer hampered in her passions because she was born into an age where women didn’t pursue such things brings, her struggle for equality is brought to vivid life. Much like the women of Hidden Figures a few generations later, Leavitt is able to overcome the biases of her day as she joins a group of women “computers” charting the stars for a renowned male astronomer who claims credit for their work. Only much later did the truth come to light. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see until someone like Leavitt changes the way we understand both the heavens and Earth.
