Network Learning: 2022
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.

This session featured Alessa Lopez-Castor of Consistent Care, Adam Davis of the Health Commons Project, Jim Reinhardt of Tulalip Bay Fire, and Mike Hilley of Whatcom County Emergency Medical Services.

July: Reducing Stigma
In July 2022, our Practice Transformation Cohort team prepared a discussion on Reducing Stigma: how can we work together to mitigate and eliminate stigma. We know stigma negatively impacts community members, particularly as they try to navigate systems to support their mental health, sexual health, and/or substance use disorder treatment. In order for people to better access care, we need to reduce stigma.
This session will help us recognize and combat the ways that stigma shapes our interpersonal, organizational, and systemic experiences. Please review the resources shared by our speakers, and re-watch or share the recording.
June: Racial Justice: Acts of Resistance
May: Meaningful Work & Wealth
Thriving Together: A Springboard for Equitable Recovery and Resilience in Communities Across America
April: Land Back
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. Please review the presentation slides, resources shared by our speakers, and re-watch or share the recording.
