Devin: Thanks for taking the time, Adrienne. Congratulations! Can you tell us what 9Rounds is?
Adrienne: Thank you so much, we’re excited to get everyone moving! 9Round is a world-wide organization that specializes in a 30 minute full body workout, which focuses on the skills of kickboxing. All skill levels can easily participate in the program, as it is adaptable to meet the needs of all members. In the 30 minutes that our members are working out, we are meeting all of their individual needs. We are able to do so by listening to what our members have to share with us about their health history, as well as their current fitness level. These are things that we take very seriously. We always look to create a dynamic workout that will push our members to their absolute best, while also taking into account any injuries or limitations that they may have. There is a place for all fitness and skill levels in 9Round.
Devin: Sounds fun! Functional exercise has always been my favorite. Tell me a little about yourselves.

Black Lives Matter

The Pocket Greenhaven Community Association was founded on the belief that, “Our community is one of respect that does not merely tolerate and accept differences, it celebrates them. No community member shall be made to feel unwelcome in their neighborhood.” We recognize, however, that this ideal has not always been the reality for many in our community and around our region, a burden borne disproportionately by our Black neighbors. And so, we say, Black Lives Matter.

The Pocket Greenhaven Community Association  was founded on the belief that, “All community members, regardless of age, gender, national origin, political preferences, race, religion, residential status or sexual orientation must be treated fairly and have equitable access to our organization, their representatives in government and to the natural and cultural amenities of our neighborhood.”  We recognize, however, that too often, our government, our schools and, yes, our police have failed to provide the same level of service and protections to our Black neighbors. And so, we say, Black Lives Matter.

The Pocket Greenhaven Community Association was founded on the belief that, “Ensuring the Pocket-Greenhaven neighborhood remain the safest neighborhood in the city must continue to be a top priority.” We recognize, however, that while we remain grateful for the brave men and women of Sacramento PD who help ensure that safety, there remains a great need to rectify the historic and ongoing abuse towards people of color especially the Black community and to make racial justice and equity a reality. And so, we say, Black Lives Matter.

The Pocket-Greenhaven Community Association joins our neighbors in calling out:  “All Lives cannot Matter until Black Lives Matter”

We join our nation in mourning the senseless murder of George Floyd and are saddened by violent reactions to peaceful protest.
