State of the Latino Community Address

09/29/2022

Join us for the 9th Annual State of the Latino Community Address at Sonoma State University on September 29, 2022 from 7am – 12pm; doors open at 7am and program starts at 8am. The State of the Latino Community Address is Los Cien’s most important annual attended conversation of the year. Over 500 people gather at Sonoma State University to listen to subject matter experts and keynote speakers who delve deep into local issues and how they impact the Latinx community. As we enter our third year of the pandemic, we are reminded of the challenges we have endured and the pain many in our Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, undocumented and low-income communities have borne. The Portrait of Sonoma update of 2022 demonstrated that many issues in the Latino community are also felt by the BIPOC community. This is why we are focusing the State of the Latino Community Address on building trust and convening a conversation on how to begin to construct multi-racial unity so that we can address these issues together and move from recovery to restructuring.

We encourage you to join us and be at the table – if we are going to repair these unfair systems, we must start where the pain has been the hardest, where the trauma has been the deepest, and where the disadvantage has been the starkest. When we invest here, we will have the most incredible opportunity to reimagine a new social and economic construct that best supports those at greatest risk from a future pandemic and environmental and economic disasters.

We are sold out! If you are interested in attending, please join our waiting list.

Our panel will offer insight into the pressing questions facing our workers and our entire agricultural industry: Who is responsible for ensuring the health and safety of our farmworkers? What are safety measures in place to protect them?  How do vineyard owners, managers, political figures, and workers balance safety and the need to preserve the region’s vital agricultural economy? In preparation for our conversation, we invite you to read the Sonoma County Evacuation Zone Acess Report.

The 8th Annual State of the Latino Community Address: Creating a New Frame for Racial, Social and Economic Justice in a Time of COVID

11/18/2021

Long before COVID, our community suffered from long standing inequities, evident by data published in the 2014 Portrait of Sonoma report. The racial, economic, and societal inequities already in place prior to the pandemic served as the fuel that further exacerbated these inequities; causing far more harm to the health and livelihoods of Black, Latinx, and Indigenous people in our community.

As Dr. Manuel Pastor puts it, “COVID was the disease that revealed our illness as a society.” As we reckon with this new reality, we must resist the temptation to go back to how things were prior to the pandemic and instead focus on dismantling the very systems and structures that perpetuate and fuel quality.

We invite you to the 2021 State of the Latino Community for a powerful gathering to reflect on our recovery and explore new data from the Rolling out of the updated Portrait of Sonoma Report, 2021. Be part of the movement to help create a new agenda for action to build a strong, equitable and resilient Sonoma County.

Confirmed speakers include:
  • Senator Alex Padilla, California, reporting from Washington D.C. 
  • Dr. Manuel Pastor, Professor of Ethnic Studies at USC.
  • Supervisor Lynda Hopkins, Sonoma County Chairman of the Board of Supervisors
  • Dr. Marlene Orozco, Lead Researcher at Stanford Business School and Los Cien Economist reporting on Latino Economics, and The Los Cien Latino Score Card, Update!  
  • A panel of regional, successful Latino entrepreneurs discussing their inspiring stories of success in difficult times.
  • Rolling Out the Newest Updated 2021 Portrait of Sonoma data.
  • Moderator is Oscar Chavez, Asst. Director of Human Services, Sonoma County

La tarjeta de puntuación de 2021 / Scorecard for 2021

Antes del  virus de COVID, nuestra comunidad sufría de desigualdades evidentes por los datos publicados en el informe Portrait of Sonoma de 2014. Las desigualdades raciales, económicas y sociales ya existentes antes de la pandemia sirvieron como el combustible que exacerbó aún más estas desigualdades; causando más daño a la salud y los medios de vida a la gente latina,negra, e indígenas en nuestra comunidad.

Como dice el Dr. Manuel Pastor, “COVID fue la enfermedad que reveló nuestra enfermedad como sociedad”. Al contar con esta nueva realidad, debemos resistir la tentación de volver a cómo eran las cosas antes de la pandemia y, en cambio, centrarnos en desmantelar los mismos sistemas y estructuras que perpetúan y alimentan la calidad.

Lo invitamos al estado de la comunidad latina 2021 para una reunión poderosa para reflexionar sobre nuestra recuperación y explorar nuevos datos del lanzamiento del informe actualizado Retrato de Sonoma, 2021. Sea parte del movimiento para ayudar a crear una nueva agenda para acción para construir un condado de Sonoma fuerte, equitativo y resistente.

Los ponentes confirmados incluyen:

  • El senador Alex Padilla, California, informando desde Washington D.C.
  • Dr. Manuel Pastor, Catedrático de Estudios Étnicos de la USC.
  • Supervisora Lynda Hopkins, Presidenta de la Junta de Supervisores del Condado de Sonoma
  • La Dra. Marlene Orozco, Investigadora principal de la Escuela de Negocios de Stanford y Economista de Los Cien que informa sobre la economía latina, y The Los Cien Latino Score Card, ¡Actualización!
  • Un panel de empresarios latinos exitosos y regionales que discuten sus inspiradoras historias de éxito en tiempos difíciles.
  • Lanzamiento de los datos más recientes de Portrait of Sonoma de 2021 actualizados.
  • El moderador es Oscar Chavez, Asistente. Director de Servicios Humanos, Condado de Sonoma

Mental Health: Breaking Stigmas & Celebrating Cultural Wealth

10/28/2021

Salud Mental: Rompiendo Estigmas y Celebrando Nuestra Riqueza Cultural – La salud mental es un componente crítico de nuestra salud y bienestar general. La comunidad latina generalmente subutiliza los servicios de salud mental de estilo occidental en parte debido a barreras culturales, percepciones negativas y factores socioeconómicos. Sin embargo, tenemos una rica tradición de prácticas espirituales de salud mental. Es importante que reconozcamos todo el espectro de servicios de salud mental y reconsideremos la forma en que se entregan a la comunidad latina. Únase a nuestro distinguido panel para un discurso en como despegar estos estigmas y identificar esfuerzos locales y culturalmente sensibles para superarlos.

  • Moderadoraa – Socorro Shiels, Los Cien & City of Santa Rosa Diversity, Inclusion and Equal Opp. Officer

Recording of Event Here | Grabación del evento aquí

Mental health is a critical component of our overall health and well-being. The Latinx community typically underutilizes western-style mental health services in part due to cultural barriers, negative perceptions, and socio-economic factors. However, we do have a rich tradition of spiritual mental health practices. It is important that we recognize the full spectrum of mental health services and rethink the way in which they are delivered to the Latinx community. Please join our distinguished panel who will break these down stigmas and discuss locally led culturally-sensitive efforts to overcome them.

  • Moderator – Socorro Shiels, Los Cien & City of Santa Rosa Diversity, Inclusion and Equal Opp. Officer

Behind the Lines – Wildfires & Farmworker Safety

09/23/2021

With increasing intensities of fires upon us, Sonoma County’s wine and agricultural sectors are under pressure to save crops and livestock from fire and smoke in evacuation zones. However, it is the farmworker who is called and ordered to work behind these evacuation lines while the fires burn near.  Join us to hear the first hand perspective of a local farmworker who bears the burden of these conflicting pressures. We will follow this with our distinguished panel who will offer insight into the pressing questions our community needs to ask about workers behind the line:  Who is responsible for ensuring the health and safety of our farmworkers? What safety measures are in place to protect those who are most vulnerable? Who decides when and where a farmworker can go to work during fires?

And how can we make a difference? To begin this important community conversation, we are honored to be joined by our distinguished panel:

  • Max Alper – Executive Director, North Bay Jobs with Justice
  • Farmworker Perspective
  • Juan A. Calderon – District Manager Cal/OSHA
  • Professor Daniel Robledo – Viticulturist Consultant/PCA/CCA-WR/DPR-WPS

Farmworker Priorities:  5 for Farmworkers Priorities (English) / 5 para Trabajadores Agrícolas (Español)

Powerpoint Presentation by Juan A. Calderon – District Manager Cal/OSHA: WILDFIRE SMOKE / El HUMO DE INCENDIOS

Con la creciente intensidad de incendios sobre nosotros, los sectores vitivinícola y agrícola del condado de Sonoma están bajo presión para salvar los cultivos y el ganado del fuego y el humo en las zonas de evacuación. Sin embargo, es el trabajador agrícola quien es llamado y ordenado a trabajar detrás de estas líneas de evacuación mientras los incendios arden cerca.  Únase a nosotros para escuchar la perspectiva de primera mano de un trabajador agrícola local que soporta la carga de estas presiones conflictivas. Seguiremos esto con nuestro distinguido panel que ofrecerá información sobre las preguntas apremiantes que nuestra comunidad necesita hacer sobre los trabajadores detrás de la línea: ¿Quién es responsable de garantizar la salud y la seguridad de nuestros trabajadores agrícolas? ¿Qué medidas de seguridad existen para proteger a los más vulnerables? ¿Quién decide cuándo y dónde un trabajador agrícola puede ir a trabajar durante los incendios? ¿Y cómo podemos marcar la diferencia?

Para comenzar esta importante conversación comunitaria, nos sentimos honrados de estar acompañados por nuestro distinguido panel:

  • Kerry Fugett – Los Cien Boardmember and Moderator
  • Max Alper – Executive Director, North Bay Jobs with Justice
  • Un trabajador agrícola
  • Juan A. Calderon – District Manager Cal/OSHA

El Valor de la Educación les Pertenece a Todos

07/22/2021

Los Cien los invita a una reunión virtual el 22 de julio comenzando a las 7 pm-8:30pm. La discusión se enfocara en que esfuerzos las preparatorias, instituciones universitarias y organizaciones comunitarias han desempeñado para revitalizar el valor de la educación. Investigaciones indican que el 96% de las familias Latinas valoran y apoyan la educación. Sin embargo, información local indica que solamente el 9% de la población Latinx obtiene un título universitario. Las creencias que escuelas son exclusivamente responsables por el éxito académico de los estudiantes es erróneo. La responsabilidad de educar a nuestros jóvenes e hijos nos pertenece a todos. La responsabilidad de instituciones educacionales es proveer apoyo social y emocional, además, de los requerimientos apropiados para la graduación de la preparatoria y admisión universitaria. Este programa explorara las oportunidades educacionales que existen para las familias y estudiantes del Condado de Sonoma atreves de colaboraciones con líderes educativos y organizadores comunitarios.

  • Moderador – Hector Delgado, Santa Rosa Junior College
  • Panelista- Pedro Avila
  • Panelista – Gabriel Albavera
  • Panelista – Elias Lopez
  • Panelista – Lizbeth Perez
  • Panelista – Tania Requenes
  • Oradora Motivacional– Ana Ramos

Recursos / Resources

Join Los Cien on July 22 at 7 pm-8:30pm for a discussion about what local high schools, institutions of higher education, and community organizations have done to revitalize the value of education. Research shows 96% of Latinx families support and value education. Yet local data displays that 9% of the Latinx population in Sonoma County have a bachelor’s degree. The longstanding belief that only schools are responsible for students’ academic success overshadows the responsibility that educating our children belongs to everyone. An educational institution’s responsibility is to provide proper social and emotional support, in addition, to high school graduation and college admissions requirements for our most vulnerable families and students. This program will explore the partnership opportunities with education leaders and community organizations to create educational pathways for Sonoma County families, and students.

Immigrants Built Wine Country by Sonoma County Secure Families Collaborative

06/25/2021

*PARTNER EVENT*

Join us for conversations and wine tasting centering the living history of non-European immigrants in building Sonoma’s famous wine country!

Register here

About this event

In Sonoma Valley, there are many reminders of the immigrants who built California’s wine industry: tasting rooms that look like Italian villas or signs bearing French names. But you won’t see any vestiges of the group that made up an estimated 80 percent of the workforce that first put Sonoma vineyards on the map: the Chinese.

Support for the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 emerged in California out of the targeting of Chinese immigrants at a time when many poor and working class Americans were struggling to get by. By the time it passed, nativist sentiments had already begun driving Chinese communities out of Sonoma Valley, ending their chances of sharing in the prosperity that would emerge from the vineyards they helped to build with their own hands.

With the recent sharp rise in anti-Asian violence in the Bay Area and beyond, once again being unfairly targeted for systemic issues beyond their control and unrecognized for how deeply interwoven their stories are in the fabric of our history, we recognize that the true immigrant story of America is one that continues to be undertold.

The Secure Families Collaborative invites you to this community event and fundraiser focusing on the importance of storytelling as an antidote to bigotry, and how we can all help amplify powerful stories of how non-European immigrants made Sonoma County and this country what it is today. We will laugh, possibly cry, and enjoy some delicious wine!

Featuring a keynote conversation with:

  • Perry Yung, actor, musician, activist (Warrior, The Knick, John Wick: Chapter 2)
  • Elizabeth Escalante, teacher, President of Wine Country Young Democrats, and Commissioner on the Commission on Human Rights in Sonoma County

Followed by an all-Latina vintner panel and virtual wine tasting by:

  • Cecilia Enriquez, Owner at Enriquez Estate Wines
  • Olga Fernandez, CEO at Guerrero Fernandez Winery
  • Monica Lopez, Co-owner at Aldina Vineyards
  • Moderated by Margaret Flores McCabe, Executive Director of the Sonoma County Secure Families Collaborative

Los Cien – 1st Annual Youth Forum: Perspectives on the Pandemic, Social Justice, and their Future!

06/24/2021

Sonoma County youth have arguably experienced more challenges in the last few years than any other generation. A pandemic, protests prompted by social injustices, pronounced racial and socio-economic inequities, wildfires, evacuations, distance learning, this list is endless. Yet, we as adults often fail to recognize the trauma these experiences leave on your youth. Efforts to label youth as resilient simply minimizes their struggles. Los Cien is hosting its 1st Annual Youth Forum to provide their due space to express their thoughts, their struggles, and the changes the seek from us!

When: Thursday, June 24th at 7:00pm PST

24 de Junio de 2021 a las 7 pm a través de Zoom, FB Live y KBBF

Los jóvenes del condado de Sonoma han experimentado más retos en los últimos años que cualquier otra generación. Una pandemia, protestas provocadas por injusticias sociales, pronunciadas inequidades raciales y socioeconómicas, incendios forestales, evacuaciones, educación a distancia, esta lista es interminable. Sin embargo, nosotros, como adultos, a menudo no reconocemos el trauma que estas experiencias dejan en nuestra juventud. Simplemente catalogando a jóvenes como resilientes simplemente minimizan sus experiencias. ¡Los Cien está organizando su Primer Foro Anual de la Juventud para proporcionar el espacio apropiado para que la juventud pueda expresar sus pensamientos, sus luchas y los cambios que buscan de nosotros!

Immigration Reform at the Crossroads – Sonoma County Impacts and Response

05/20/2021

We are at the crossroads of hope and fear for Sonoma County’s undocumented residents. After four years of the Trump administration demonizing immigrants, meaningful immigration reform is pending in Congress. Join us to hear about what this means for the young undocumented adults in our community who live with uncertain futures, directly from them.

Los Cien in partnership with Secure Families Collaborative will provide an insider Washington view of pending immigration reform and look at the challenges locally for taking advantage of new legislation. The panel discussion will include what legal help is available, the mental health toll of undocumented status, the types of documentation a person will need, and how we can work together as a community to assist the thousands of Sonoma County residents who may be eligible for relief.

Time to Reset-Sonoma County 2021

01/28/2021

If the last few years have taught us anything it’s that the concept of “normal” is either non-existent or at the very least, ever changing. We have also learned that the only constant has been the resiliency of Sonoma County, its people, and its institutions in moving forward. Sure, 2020 left a lot of baggage but 2021 is time to Review and Reset and to Act.

Los Cien is Proud and Honored to present a program with 3 prominent and distinguished leaders that will guide a general conversation regarding Status and Proximate future of Sonoma County and its government, health, and economy. A very special Conversation for all of us to learn what each one of us can do to work together in creating a great place for all of our Families. Let us Introduce our very special speakers and panel!

  • Lynda Hopkins – Sonoma County Board of Supervisor Chairwoman
  • Sheba Person-Whitley – Executive Director of Sonoma County’s Economic Development Board (EDB)
  • Barbie Robinson – Director of Sonoma County’s Department of Health Services (DHS)
  • Dr. Sundari Mase – Public Health Division Director for Sonoma County DHS
  • Dr. Urmila Shende – Chief of Vaccine Program, Sonoma County DHS

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

11/11/2020

November 11, 2020 at 6pm – View the Recording Here

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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

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

11 de Noviembre de 2020 a las 6pm (webinar GRATUITO)

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.

SOBRE EL AUTOR:

Richard Rothstein es investigador asociado del Instituto de Política Económica y miembro del Thurgood Marshall Institute del NAACP Legal Defense Fund. Vive en California, donde es miembro del Instituto Haas de la Universidad de California-Berkeley.

Staying Alive – Real Cost Measures of Living in Sonoma County

10/22/2020

A program produced in collaboration with United Way. There are more Californians living in poverty than most people think. Poverty is grossly undercounted across the nation, but especially so in California, since most Californians live in high cost areas. In Sonoma County more than 25% of households  (37,000+) are living below the ‘real cost measure’ index. Please join us to discuss how the ‘real cost index’ measures can serve to change policies that begin to address these socio-economic inequities.

  • Speakers
    • Peter Manzo – President and CEO of United Ways of California
    • Henry Gascon – Director, Program and Policy Development at United Ways of California.

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***
