SLO City Council provides to nonprofits that promote diversity

Mayor Heidi Harmon

The San Luis Obispo City Council voted Tuesday to provide $109,800 in funding to eight non-profits that support diversity.

The city’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force, which was created in July, recommended eight of the 20 nonprofits that applied for the funding. The primary function of the funding is “narrowing equity gaps that have disproportionately impacted marginalized communities, such as: education, housing, physical and mental health services, criminalization, community representation and food security.”

Funding recipients:

  • R.A.C.E. Matters — $32,600
  • SLO Noor Foundation — $20,000
  • SLO Repertory Theater — $16,300
  • Central Coast Coalition for Undocumented Student Success — $10,200
  • Diversity Coalition San Luis Obispo County — $10,000
  • Literacy for Life — $10,000
  • SLO International Film Festival — $7,500
  • One Cool Earth — $3,200

    Just for the record, R.A.C.E Matters is the non profit that Tianna Arata’s mother is involved with. Interesting that they received the most money. If you look at their website, I don’t believe they do that much for the community.
    At this rate, I will not be spending my dollars in the City of SLO if at all possible. They are not showing fiscal responsibility. Is that tax dollars they are giving away?
