Equity In Education: Supporting Sustainable Solutions

09/03/2020

Join Los Cien on Sept. 3 at 7pm for a discussion about closing the gaps that exist in our education system that have been further highlighted/exacerbated by virtual learning and school re-openings. These longstanding, and emerging disparities impede our community’s ability to provide adequate education to our youth – the leaders of tomorrow, the constructors of our future. From early childhood education to high school, our most vulnerable students are being left behind. In this program, we will explore the challenges and solutions local business and education leaders are forwarding to foment equity in education for Sonoma County families, youth and beyond.

THE COLOR OF LAW / EL COLOR DE LEY – A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America

08/20/2020

POSTPONED – Given the evacuations and the uncertainty of the active fires, the Gen H and Los Cien leadership teams have decided that your and our attention must be on the health and safety of family, friends, and neighbors. So we are postponing this important event. We will reschedule in the coming month and will be in touch with those details as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding, and please, stay safe and well. 8/20/2020

Los Cien in collaboration with Generation Housing are proud to present an insightful conversation with Author & Speaker Richard Rothstein

In THE COLOR OF LAW, Richard Rothstein argues with exacting precision and fascinating insight how segregation in America is the byproduct of explicit government policies at the local, state, and federal level. To scholars and social critics, racism in our neighborhoods has long been viewed as a manifestation of unscrupulous real estate agents, unethical mortgage lenders, and exclusionary covenants working outside the law. This is what is commonly known as “de facto segregated,” practices that were the outcome of private, not legal or public policy, means. Yet, as Rothstein breaks down in case after case, until the last quarter of the twentieth century de facto paled in comparison to de jure (government-sponsored) segregation.

At every step of the way, Rothstein demonstrates, the government and our courts upheld racist policies to maintain the separation of whites and blacks. Leading to the powder keg which has defined Ferguson, Baltimore, Charleston, and Chicago.  THE COLOR OF LAW is not a tale of Red versus Blue states. It is sadly the story of America in all of its municipalities, large and small, liberal and reactionary.

Richard Rothstein is a research associate of the Economic Policy Institute and a Fellow at the Thurgood Marshall Institute of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. He lives in California, where is a Fellow of the Haas Institute at the University of California–Berkeley.

EL COLOR DE LEY:  La Historia Olvidada de Cómo Nuestro Gobierno Segrego los Estados Unidos

20 de Agosto de 2020 a las 6pm (webinar GRATUITO)  |  Regístrese: https://bit.ly/socorothstein

Los Cien en colaboración con Generation Housing se enorgullecen de presentar: Autor y orador – Richard Rothstein

En EL COLOR DE LA LEY, Richard Rothstein argumenta con precisión y una visión fascinante de cómo la segregación en Estados Unidos es el subproducto de políticas gubernamentales explícitas a nivel local, estatal y federal. Para los eruditos y los críticos sociales, el racismo en nuestros vecindarios ha sido visto durante mucho tiempo como una manifestación de agentes inmobiliarios sin escrúpulos, prestamistas hipotecarios poco éticos y convenios excluyentes que trabajan fuera de la ley. Esto es lo que comúnmente se conoce como“segregado de facto”, prácticas que fueron el resultado de medios privados, no legales o de política pública. Sin embargo, como Rothstein presenta en caso tras caso, hasta el último cuarto del siglo XX, segregación de facto  palidecó  en comparación con la segregación de jure (patrocinada por el gobierno).

En cada paso del camino, Rothstein demuestra que el gobierno y nuestros tribunales defendieron políticas racistas para mantener la separación de blancos y negros. Estos actos had procido explosvos resultados definidos por ejemplo en Ferguson, Baltimore, Charleston y Chicago. EL COLOR DE LA LEY no es una historia de estados rojos contra azules. Es tristemente la historia de Estados Unidos en todos sus municipios, grandes y pequeños, liberales y reaccionarios.

Understanding The Independent Office of Law Enforcement Review and Outreach (IOLERO)

07/30/2020

We are proud to present yet another program in our series addressing race and social justice reform. The topic this time will be the Community’s ability to create, implement, and participate in a robust law enforcement oversight program. The Independent Office of Law Enforcement Review and Outreach (IOLERO) was established by the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors on September 15, 2015. IOLERO was a direct Community and Government response to the tragic shooting of Andy Lopez in 2013.

Recently, the Supervisors formed an ad hoc committee to consider changes to the IOLERO’s ordinance in order to strengthen its ability to perform its intended function – law enforcement oversight in Sonoma County. The Board is considering changes proposed by IOLERO’s director, provisions included in the Evelyn Cheatham Ordinance and input from the community which support greater independence, increased funding, clear authority, and unfettered access to the information and staff needed to accomplish the agency’s mission of oversight of the Sonoma County Sheriffs’ Department. The Board of Supervisors is considering whether to make these changes directly through a Board of Supervisors’ amendment or by placing the Evelyn Cheatham Ordinance on the November 2020 ballot (with or without modifications).

Please join us July 30, 2020 at 7pm for panel discussion on IOLERO. Click here to register.

The conversation will be led by

  • Lorez Bailey (current member of IOLERO’s Community Advisory Council) and will include:
  • Karlene Navarro (Executive Director of IOLERO),
  • Sylvia Lemus (founding member of the IOLERO’s Community Advisory Council)

*** This program is focused on the (1) Political Participation and (2) Neighborhood Engagement components of the Latino Scorecard***

Estamos orgullosos de presentar otro programa en nuestra serie que aborda la reforma de justicia racial y social. El tema esta vez será la capacidad de la Comunidad para crear, implementar y participar en un programa sólido de supervisión de las fuerzas del orden. La Oficina Independiente de Difusión y Revisión a la Aplicación de Ley (IOLERO) fue establecida por la Junta de Supervisores del Condado de Sonoma el 15 de septiembre de 2015. IOLERO fue una respuesta directa de la Comunidad y del Gobierno al trágico tiroteo de Andy López en 2013.

Recientemente, los Supervisores formaron un comité ad hoc para considerar los cambios en la ordenanza que estabilizo IOLERO con el fin de fortalecer su capacidad para llevar a cabo su función prevista – supervisión de la aplicación de la ley en el condado de Sonoma. La Junta está considerando los cambios propusestos por la directora de IOLERO, proviciones incluidos en la Ordenanza de Evelyn Cheatham, y sugerencias de la comunidad que apoyan una mayor independencia, mayor financiación, autoridad clara y acceso sin restricciones a la información y al personal necesarios para cumplir la misión de supervisión del Departamento del Sheriff del Condado.

La Junta de Supervisores está considerando si hacer estos cambios directamente por enmienda or por colocar la Ordenanza de Cheatham puedeen la boleta electoral de Noviembre de 2020 (con o sin modificaciones).

Por favor, únase a nosotros el 30 de julio, 2020 a las 7:00 p.m. para esta conversación sobre IOLERO.

La conversación será encabezada por:

  • Lorez Bailey (actual miembro del Consejo Asesor Comunitario de IOLERO)
  • Karlene Navarro (Directora Ejecutiva de IOLERO),
  • Sylvia Lemus (miembro fundador del Consejo Asesor Comunitario de IOLERO)*** Este programa se centra en los (1) componentes de Participación Política y (2) Compromiso Vecinal de la Tarjeta de Puntuación Latina***
