A COMMUNITY FORUM ON RACE

Protests and riots have erupted across the country and around the world since George Floyd, a black man, died on May 25, 2020, in police custody, while a white officer knelt on his neck. Peaceful protests have taken place in Wenatchee, throughout North Central Washington, and around the world following this event. A panel of local community members joined us on Juneteenth for a thoughtful, inclusive, and open-minded discussion about race. Thank you to all the panelists and participants who joined us on Zoom and on Facebook Live. .

DIVERSITY IN THE OUTDOORS

The Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center in partnership with Wenatchee River Institute held a community forum on September 3, 2020 to discuss lack of diversity in nature and outdoor recreation and the many factors contributing to the disparities. North Central Washington is an outdoor recreation hub, with climbing, mountain biking, hiking, backpacking, whitewater activities, gardening, and so much more. Yet, not everyone in our community is represented in these activities.
