Escuchando a Roseland
Escuchando a Roseland

En 2020, por primera vez, los residentes del barrio Roseland en Santa Rosa tendrán la oportunidad de votar por un miembro del consejo de la ciudad. La elección en el primer distrito, que también incluye el vecindario de South Park, sería caótica, con docenas de candidatos ya declarados o pensando en una carrera. También determinará cómo los miembros de la comunidad latina de Santa Rosa, y otros en el distrito, harán oír sus voces sobre los temas más importantes para los residentes de la ciudad.

Nuestro proyecto de escuchar, en colaboración con otros grupos comunitarios, buscará descubrir y elevar lo que es importante para la comunidad en el primer distrito. Alentaremos a todos los votantes elegibles, y a los miembros de la comunidad que no puedan votar, a compartir sus opinas.

Listening to Roseland

In 2020, for the first time, residents of the Roseland neighborhood in Santa Rosa will have the opportunity to vote for a city council member. The election in district one, which also includes the South Park neighborhood, promises to be chaotic, with dozens of candidates already declared or mulling a run. It will also determine how members of the Latinx community of Santa Rosa, and others in the district, will make their voices heard on the most important issues to city residents.
 
How will those issues come to the fore?
 
Our Deep Listening project, in collaboration with other community groups, will seek to find out, and lift up, what is important to the community in district one. We will encourage all eligible voters, and community members unable to vote, to make their voices heard.
 
Join us, by writing to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we’ll be in touch regularly about the progress of the project.
