CMC Statement of Anti-Racism Policy
The Coastside Mothers’ Club does not support or tolerate racism.
The Coastside Mothers’ Club strives to be an inclusive organization for all families on the San Mateo Coast, from Montara to Pescadero. Per the club bylaws “The Coastside Mothers’ Club welcomes all parents, grandparents, and guardians regardless of age, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or marital status.”
As a part of our purpose, the Coastside Mothers' Club is a volunteer-led organization committed to enriching the lives of Coastside families with young children. The CMC builds community through social and educational events and provides opportunities for members to share resources and give back to the community at large. Family, Friendship, Fun. We want to encourage that, especially now.
So where do we go from here?
- Share with us any resources you have found helpful in talking about racism with your children, books you have in your at home library, etc., so we can add to our community’s resources.
- Join us to help create and brainstorms ways to enrich our children’s lives as well as our own. Our Board is open to all members.
- Encourage all members of our community to join the CMC. Since the club’s inception we have offered a scholarship fund to allow families access to membership if they cannot afford it.
We are here to help support our community as much as we can and provide a space for all to share and grow. Please feel free to reach out to me or the board personally if you feel like there is more support or resources needed.
CMC & COVID-19
In light of recent communication regarding COVID-19, I would like to address how CMC is taking precautions and following public recommendations regarding events and meetups. We have canceled all events for the next few months and given the SMC restrictions in place, playgroups should refrain from meeting up.
