Orange County Health Department People of Color Caucus
Wednesday, November 6, 2019
12pm to 1pm
Whitted – Board of Health Room

Good afternoon everyone! This is a reminder that POC Caucus is scheduled for next Wednesday from 12pm to 1pm the BOH room at Whitted. I will be away at APHA from November 1st-November 6th, so I will not be able to attend. If anyone would like to facilitate for that day, please let me know by Nov. 4th. The room is still reserved for that day, so caucus members are still welcome to meet.

All people of color who have completed REI’s Phase l workshop, Latinx Challenge, and/or training with OpenSource Leadership Strategies, Inc. are invited and encouraged to attend. For newer participants, please see our purpose outlined below – we look forward to welcoming you to our caucus!

And as usual, we hope the analysis from REI will help inform what we share, and we intend to create a protected space to speak openly, learn from one another, and heal together.

Thank you all!
