Building an Equitable Marin
Marin County has weathered the COVID-19 pandemic better than other parts of California and the country. With high vaccination rates and robust partnerships among nonprofit, community, and government agencies to support relief efforts, our community has achieved a lot.
For large numbers of families and individuals in one of the state’s most racially disparate counties however, the crisis is not over.
Housing insecurity and economic instability, which were exacerbated during the COVID-19 pandemic, have put a high percentage of Marin County’s low-income and historically marginalized residents at risk.
We invite you to watch our video, “Building an Equitable Marin” to learn firsthand what is possible when everyone has the equal opportunity to live with dignity and respect. These testimonials from agency staff, community members, and volunteers show how working together can create change and make an impact in our county.
At Community Action Marin, we will continue to do what’s needed in the urgent work of increasing racial and economic justice, and invite you to join us.
CEO: Chandra Alexandre, Ph.D.
We make it possible for people to achieve wellbeing by providing the education, mental health, and vital services they need. Together, we break down the barriers that get in the way of fair and lasting change in service to better outcomes for all.
