Equity Arcata

Equity Arcata is a partnership between the City of Arcata, Cal Poly Humboldt, local businesses and nonprofits, and members of the community working to make Arcata a more equitable and welcoming environment for people of color. Using a collective impact model and organized into themed working groups, a backbone design team, and an advisory group, this partnership expresses our commitment to creating a community in which our students, staff, and faculty of color feel safe and included.

Equity Arcata was recognized as a 2018 promising practice by the Paul J. Aicher Foundation.
