Support the San Juan County Equity Coalition’s Safe and Inclusive Community efforts.
Urge the San Juan County Council to immediately adopt the Justice Ordinance that celebrates diversity and equity, reviews all county street and place names and makes changes where appropriate to honor the first peoples and ensure we are anti-racist.
This Ordinance will:
-Recognize Juneteenth as an official County Holiday
-Identify and replace demeaning public road or place names throughout the County
-Add Indigenous place names to County-maintained maps through collaboration with Indigenous peoples
-Create a Community Advocate and Liaison position, responsible for multilingual and multicultural relations in the County’s delivery of public services and collaboration with the County’s Human Resources Department to implement more equitable hiring practices and procurement contracts
