2022 LEARNING & ADVOCACY SERIES
Advancing a Just and Inclusive Culture
The North Sound Collaborative Action Network presents a learning and advocacy interactive webinar series for 2022, Advancing a Just and Inclusive Culture. Each month, we will host a presentation with local and national experts and interactive breakout rooms on topics grounded in equity and vital conditions for our work in the North Sound. Our working groups in the Network, called Cohorts, will be alternating our topics each month and bringing you rich discussion and challenging ideas.
To attend the live webinar, register here and add the Zoom calendar link to your own calendar. The recordings and resources from each month’s session will be added to this collection shortly after the live presentation.
Meaningful Work & Wealth
In May 2022, our Vital Conditions team prepared a discussion on Meaningful Work & Wealth, one of the Seven Vital Conditions for Health and Well-Being. Featuring national perspectives from Becky Payne of the Rippel Foundation, and Gary Cunningham of Prosperity Now, as well as regional voice Jason McGill of Northwest Youth Services, these panelists brought rich discussion about racial economic justice, and how to frame these concepts to your work. Please review the presentation slides, resources shared by our speakers, and re-watch or share the recording.
In April 2022, our Equity team prepared a discussion on Land Back: Beyond Land Acknowledgment to Stewardship, Decolonization, and Reconciliation. The concept of Land Back is an organizing campaign that seeks to return political and economic control of land to Indigenous people. This session featured North Sound ACH Tribal & Community Liaison Michaela Vendiola, and Dr. Kelly Gonzales of the Indigenous Equity Institute.
