Sonoma County Equity in Education

The Equity in Education movement is made up of passionate leaders from many of the community’s high-impact nonprofits and social agencies — but it’s fueled by parents and students who are tired of being marginalized and ready to stand against system racism and injustice.

Sonoma Valley for Healing Justice

In partnership with Sonoma Valley Catalyst Fund and On the Margins, we’re excited to launch a new program designed to help high school students build up skills in the areas of social justice and community action. Sonoma Valley for Healing Justice will become a valuable resource for raising up future leaders in our community.
