The People behind the Lavender Scrolls Project

The Lavender Scrolls Project is a community arts and social service outreach project born of a collaboration between the Lavender Seniors of the East Bay, the California Council for the Humanities, Cathy Cade Personal History and Photography and
Cappelletti Designs, Visual and Community Arts.
