March Racial Equity Roundtable: Leaders of Color & Racial Equity Work in Humboldt County

March 5, 2020 (5:30-7:30 p.m.)

The next few sessions of the Racial Equity Roundtables will center panel discussions with local leaders of color, highlighting racial equity work happening in our communities. Sessions will feature panel discussions, large group work, and race-based affinity groups. Participants will hear about the experiences of leaders of color, develop understanding of how anti-racism work functions on-the-ground in Humboldt County, and identify ways to get engaged.

Facilitated by Aristea Saulsbury and Melissa Meiris.  Attendance at previous Roundtables are not required.

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.
