What is the connection between health and access to the outdoors? How are local organizations ensuring and encouraging equitable access to our region’s incredible parks and open spaces?
Join some of our community’s environmental leaders as we explore issues of environmental and community stewardship at our next luncheon. Helping us explore this topic are Dr. Lisa Micheli President and CEO of the Pepperwood Preserve, Neal Ramus from the Sonoma County Land Trust, Omar Gallardo of LandPaths, Amy Jolly from the Center for Climate Protection, and Irma Cuevas from Sonoma County Regional Parks.
Housing Equity & Accountability
November 2018 we hosted the Equity in Housing Forum. The house was packed and much was shared, discussed and committed to. Now it is March, and we are holding ourselves and our community partners accountable – reconvening stakeholders to learn what progress has been made, the challenges that are emerging and what lies ahead.
Marin Latino Leaders
We want to take this moment to thank those who attended our
“The vision of our new DA in Marin County and the Latino community” luncheon last week with Lori Frugoli. Truly a great conversation with Lori and community.
In the month of March are looking into law enforcement with our “A Conversation with, Marin County Sheriff Doyle” luncheon. This is a great opportunity to converse and welcome Sheriff Robert Doyle to questions around the work the Sheriffs office holds in Marin County. Please save the date for March 20th as we look forward to a great luncheon and welcoming our community members to participate.
Doors will open at 11:30am with lunch served at 12 and end at 1:30 sharp. We will be meeting at San Rafael Joe’s at 931 4th Street, San Rafael . Parking is available in the Parking structure behind San Rafael Joes. We have put together a lineup of guest speakers for the next few months that will be both, informative and inspiring. You are welcome to network before and after the presentation. I hope to see you all there.

Equity in Housing
In order to grow economic opportunity and build an inclusive economy, we must meet the housing needs of our community. To realize this vision, we all have to work together and imagine what a more inclusive community looks like, and then work hard to bring this vision into fruition.
To further this conversation, we are bringing Ben Metcalf, Director for the California Department of Housing and Community Development and many other local, state and federal officials to the table to explore and better understand the unique housing issues and opportunities facing our community.
