October 2021 Virtual Equity Alliance Roundtable:

Queer Humboldt 

October 7, 2021 (5:30-7:00 p.m.)

 

Equity Alliance Roundtables are now online!

Join us in discussion with Tai Parker and Lark Doolan from Queer Humboldt to discuss queer liberation and support of queer folks in the community.

Tai Parker is a counselor and community partner with a passion for Queering social justice and activist work. They bring with them lived experience as a trans/nonbinary person of color living in Humboldt and strives to build community engagement and support through the various projects and organizations they collaborate with.  

Lark Doolan is the executive director of Queer Humboldt, superintendent of Peninsula Union School District, and Transgender Health Champion for Open Door Community Health Centers. He works for intersectional liberation, the dismantling -isms and -obias through building an inclusive community where diversity is valued.

Queer people exist in all communities, thus queer liberation is inextricably intertwined with the Black Lives Matter movement, just immigration policies and practices, Native sovereignty, Disability Rights, feminism, body positivity and all movements that dismantle systems of oppression. 

The October Roundtable will include participation via the chat feature on Zoom. We will also have a live conversation in race-based affinity groups (participants will be asked which group they would like to participant in when they register). 

Roundtables will be conducted online using Zoom, which works with both video and audio. Login instructions will be sent out when you register.  If you are not familiar with Zoom, we encourage you to log on 10 minutes early for a short tutorial.
 
  
Facilitated by Tai Parker and Lark Doolan.
Event registration is sliding scale ($0 - $15). We want the roundtables to be accessible to all who would like to attend, regardless of ability to pay. 

Please call us at 707-442-2993 with questions.

Past Events & Efforts

This racial equity work gives us a toolbox that helps us see things more clearly and then work in a logical and outcome-oriented way to address them.

Native Land Acknowledgement Statement

We acknowledge that the land on which we are based is un-ceded territory and traditional ancestral homeland of indigenous nations: Hupa, Karuk, Mattole, Tolowa, Wailaki, Wiyot, Yurok, and other original inhabitants of Humboldt County. We respect and share our gratitude to Indigenous communities. We take this opportunity to thank and honor the original caretakers of land they continue to cherish and protect, as elders have instructed the young through generations. We encourage those in Wiyot territory to make a contribution to the Honor Tax, a system set up by local non-native people as one way to acknowledge the sacrifices and resiliency of the Wiyot people. Though there is no similar system for other Tribes in the region, we encourage direct giving to Tribes and Native-led efforts.
