Orange County Health Department People of Color Caucus

Good morning POC Caucus, hope this email finds you all well!
Through conversation with caucus members, there is interest in POC Caucus covering more topic ideas that are relative to the multiple communities that are represented in our affinity group.
For our upcoming caucuses (Oct 2. and Oct 18.) and for future caucuses in general, if anyone is interested in presenting a topic, or co-facilitating with myself, please reach out to me so that I can include you on the agenda. For example, last week one of our caucus members showed a documentary on African-American history. Another example could be discussing topics on upcoming or current holidays/cultural heritage months, such as National Hispanic Heritage Month.
These are just a few examples, but we welcome all creative ideas for discussion!

Thank you all, and Happy Friday!
