In our fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, systemic racism, and the destructive impacts of climate change, we recognize that the road to recovery cannot lead us back to the old normal. Whether a direct service provider, an advocacy group, or community foundation, we each have a role to play in advancing social change. How can we support one another in advancing equity within our organizations, our nonprofit sector, and the broader community?
The Central Coast Regional Equity Initiative aims to unify community groups, researchers, local government, and philanthropic organizations in a shared regional vision of equity that recognizes the unique struggles and aspirations of the Central Coast’s peoples and communities. Join The Fund for Santa Barbara and NPRN for the first event in a series of community engagement sessions centered on building a collective framework and action-agenda rooted in equity, sustainability, and justice.
This first community building session will highlight key findings of inequity facing Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties from the initiative’s first report, Towards a Just and Equitable Central Coast, and serve as a space for community groups to come together to discuss addressing and advocating for equity within the Central Coast.
