Mendocino County RCD Stands Against Racism
The Mendocino County RCD opposes systemic racism and injustice. Racism and inequality are deeply antithetical to our core mission of assisting all people in Mendocino County in caring for our natural resources. Fulfilling that mission involves eliminating barriers to participation, expanding the relevance of our program content to address environmental fairness and justice, and building community partnerships. The Mendocino County RCD stands in solidarity with the Black community, Indigenous peoples, and other People of Color (BIPOC) and allies.

As an institution, we recognize that environmental stewardship and anti-racism must go hand in hand if we are to have a sustainable future. Thriving landscapes and strong economies require the full participation of all members of our society. MCRCD commits as an organization to looking inward to address ways we can better serve our community and fulfill our mission, which involves listening to the needs, knowledge, and ideas of BIPOC communities.
