H-PEACE is a local healthcare activism group in Sonoma County committed to being more civically-engaged. We aim to help to foster an understanding of the impact of policies on health, address racial disparities, protect access to healthcare and full spectrum reproductive health services, defend environmental and social justice. The effects of xenophobia, discrimination, and intolerance have grave effects on the health of our communities and we partner with local community organizations as our voices as healthcare professionals are a powerful community resource.
North Bay LGBTQI Families represents and welcomes all LGBTQI families of the North Bay, and we center the intersectionality of the various struggles our families experience as LGBTQI, Immigrant, Black, Brown, Native, Undocumented, Differently Abled, and beautifully diverse folks. (Intersectionality- “the interconnected nature of social categorizations such as race, class, and gender as they apply to a given individual or group, regarded as creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage.”)
