Mobilizing families and empowering the community
Families of Color Monterey County (FoCMC) is a grassroots community education and empowerment initiative centering the needs of families of color and focused on developing equitable access to resources through advocacy, education, and community building.
We are a community-building collective of mulitracial and multicultural families (Indigenous, Black, and/or People of Color [[IBPoC]], transracial adoptive families, transracial adoptees, caregivers, grandparents, etc.) for whom race, culture, and ethnicity are central to child-rearing and identity. We organize a variety of programming to provide opportunities for families to socialize, learn, and support each other as we navigate parenthood.
