Sebastopol Community
Cultural Center

Welcome!

We at the SCCC are dedicated to enriching the community through events, classes and services, as well as providing rental spaces for special happenings in our town. We strive to enhance life in Sebastopol for individuals and the community as a whole.

Happy Spring!

As the weather starts to change and the flowers are blooming, so are the happenings at the Community Center. We are actively scheduling new classes, events and offerings.

SCCC is thrilled to partner with West County Health, providing a space for their Vaccine Site. We are so grateful to be able to participate in the vaccination efforts of the greater West Sonoma County. While we are providing the space, SCCC is not participating in any of the scheduling. If you have any questions, please contact West County Health directly or go to their website at www.wchealth.org.

More classes are coming soon! Please stay in touch with all our offerings via social media, our website or directly with the instructors you know and love. We are actively following all COViD-19 guidelines set-forth by the County and the State. Each and every activity we do at SCCC has it’s own specific set of guidelines. If you have any questions, please do let us know. All events can be found under Events and Classes.

We are looking to schedule in-person events as early as the Fall. Please reach out to jessica@seb.org or go online and check out our packages and reserve your date TODAY. While we remain confident about the trajectory of COVID-19 in Sonoma County, we also are remaining flexible to keep our community safe.

We are continuing to add to our schedule daily. Stay tuned for your favorite class/activity to return

The best way to reach the SCCC right now is by email to sccc@seb.org.

As always, we couldn’t be who we are without YOUR support. We appreciate every donation we receive. Each donation directly goes towards our offerings and the day-to-day operations of the SCCC. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

For now – enjoy this beautiful weekend!

Sebastopol Community Cultural Center
stands with Black Lives Matter

Our commitments:
The Sebastopol Community Cultural Center recognizes that we as a nation are bearing witness to a historic pursuit of justice. We also find ourselves confronted with the truth of systemic racism laid bare; Black Americans have experienced a violent status quo for centuries and we understand that each of us has work to do to commit to the fight for racial equity in the long term. SCCC affirms that Black Lives Matter and intends to continue this affirmation in both words and actions. 

As a community organization, we understand the vital power of safe, comfortable, welcoming spaces, and in that spirit we make the following commitments toward racial justice:

Education: The Board commits to completing an anti-racist curriculum to learn more about the aims of the Black Lives Matter movement and to unlearn the biases that each of us holds that are antithetical to justice and equity. We invite each member of the Sebastopol community to join us in this educational pursuit and have listed resources to do so below.

Collaboration: We commit to investing time, energy, and resources in a range of diverse community organizations to help further their work and to guide our efforts to reevaluate our own practices.

Diversification: We pledge to incorporate a more diverse representation of our community to be reflected in the Board, staff, and all those who contribute to making SCCC a safe and welcoming place.

Support: We have partnered with members of the Sebastopol business community to develop a list of Black-owned businesses to support at this time, which is also available below.

Commitment: We pledge to revisit our plans, policies, and progress every three months with the understanding that antiracism is a long-term project that must be integrated into our every act.

Black Lives Matter Resources

We are working diligently on compiling an accurate and thorough list of local Black-owned businesses, and are aiming to have it ready within the coming week. We appreciate your patience and please check back again soon. (Why is supporting Black-owned business important?)

SCCC board and staff are utilizing the following resources to better understand systemic racism in America, we invite you to join our learning and unlearning efforts:

Justice in June: A month-long anti-racism curriculum of books, podcasts, and articles.

The Guardian: "Do the work: an anti-racist reading list"

The Guardian: "‘No reader is too young to start’: anti-racist books for all children and teens"

Medium: "75 Things White People Can Do for Racial Justice"

Consider supporting groups in our area doing work that substantively supports the Black community and antiracism: Black Lives Matter Bay Area, Showing Up for Racial Justice Bay Area, Anti-Police Terror Project, 100 Black Men of Sonoma County, North Bay Black Chamber of Commerce, North Bay Organizing Project, the Lime Foundation.
