Color Me Human Presents: Voices from the Shadows. A rare opportunity to listen in on a conversation with four local Black, Indigenous & Women of Color as they share their experiences, struggles, hopes, and dreams for a better tomorrow.
In our rural community Black, Indigenous and People of Color experience unique challenges like greater isolation, increased stress and emotional labor, and hypervigilance associated with being and feeling unsafe in the place we call “home”. Despite these harrowing statistics, we continue to find ways to live, work, and thrive here in rural Nevada County, on Nisenan Land.
Join host Daniela Fernández in an exploration of what it means to be a person of color in rural Northern Californian at a time of great divide and uncertainty.
Tuesday, June 8, 2021, from 6:00-7:30 PM we invite you to join:
Shelly Covert Nevada City Rancheria Nisenan Tribal Spokesperson and Executive Director of the California Heritage Indigenous Research Project– C.H.I.R.P.
