California State Coastal Conservancy
“I stand unequivocally in solidarity with the fight for racial justice and equity, and the end of oppression of Black people. Our agency is working to understand the role we have played as a government agency in a system that perpetuates racial inequality, and how, through allyship and the fulfillment of our mission, we can support Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. We recognize and value our community-based partner organizations and grantees that are committing their time and hearts to advancing racial equity.
We will work to bring the change that we want to see in this country into our own institution and our work across California.”
– Sam Schuchat, Executive Officer, State Coastal Conservancy
