Silence is Violence

Encinitas4Equality

Our Mission

It is the mission of Encinitas4Equality to educate, organize and mobilize our community to work in allyship with our BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) neighbors in Encinitas and neighboring communities.

Our Vision

Through education and activism, Encinitas4Equality hopes to build a community that fosters,  supports and protects diversity. The long term vision of E4E is to continue to engage our community to demand equality and collectively ensure social justice for all marginalized groups. We value building partnerships and are hopeful that with collaboration and dialogue, our schools, our police, our local businesses, our electeds, and other communities will engage and act to make our community and country more just and equitable.

Core Values

Inclusivity, Unity, Integrity, Accountability, Dignity, Respect and Creativity.

Community
We work in allyship with our existing Black neighbors, as well as our diverse neighboring cities by sharing collective experiences, hosting gatherings, and building supportive relationships.
Reimagining Policing
Encinitas4Equailty is joining the voices of countless other organizations and citizens who are demanding an END to police brutality and the reallocation of funds that promote systemic oppression.
Housing
We strive to make Encinitas a city that deliberately increases access to housing for low-income individuals and families, and for Black and Indigenous persons, and People of Color (BIPOC).
Allyship & Education
Allyship is a lifelong process of building relationships based on trust, consistency, and accountability with marginalized individuals and/or groups of people not self-defined—work and efforts must be recognized by those you are seeking to ally with.
Youth
The Encinitas4Equality Youth group is to recruit, mentor, empower and learn from youth via solution-oriented dialogue and action to advocate for racial equity and social justice in both the education system and community.
Business
We work to make Encinitas a place where workplaces are affirmatively anti-racist and a city that intentionally increases access to business ownership for low-income individuals and families, and for Black and Indigenous persons, and People of Color (BIPOC).
