Join the Cultural Competency Advisory Committee (CCAC) for two days of panel discussions, cultural presentations, and a community forum. In light of racism being declared a public health crisis in San Bernardino County, our aim is to create an opportunity to unite people from different backgrounds and discuss ways we can heal and grow together in a common message of hope and resiliency. This event qualifies for 5 hours of cultural competency hours per day when attending in person.
