Office of Equity stablished

Published:  September 8, 2020

Dear County Employees,  

On August 20, 2020 the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors officially established the Office of Equity. This critical step recognizes the powerful role that local government can play to unseat racial inequities through the intentional development of new policies, programs, and legislation. 

As Interim Director of the Office of Equity, I have dedicated the first few weeks to assemble an interim team, to focus on supporting the response to the spike in COVID-19 cases in the Latinx and indigenous language-speaking communities, and to support our emergency response during the LNU Fires. Over the longer-term, the Office of Equity's goals include developing and implementing strategies and tools for our departments, sister agencies, and community partners to further equity in Sonoma County.

Special thanks to County leadership and to County equity champions, including members of SoCo REAL (Racial Equity Alliance Leadership) and SoCo LERN (the Latinx Employee Resource Network) for their support and determination to make the Office of Equity a reality. 

If you are interested in learning more about our office, our staff and what we are working on, please take a few minutes to read our first newsletter and subscribe to keep in touch with us. 

Thank you!

Alegría De La Cruz
