Testimonials

“The police department/Sheriff’s Office is proud to be a part of Sustainable Sonoma. We support Sustainable Sonoma and their vision of a Healthy, Resilient, Sustainable, and Thriving community.  If they, along with our other non-profits, are successful, then our community will be a better place to live, work, and raise a family.” – Bret Sackett, Former Police Chief, Sonoma Police Department

“Sonoma Valley unified school district is proud to be a part of Sustainable Sonoma. Since the future of Sonoma Valley is currently being educated in our schools we need to ensure of education priorities are informed by the work of Sustainable Sonoma. We need to be educating our students today of the needs of the future. Also the Sonoma Valley school district recognizes that it is part of current community of Sonoma as an employer needing trained employees as an organization that have a large physical foot print in the county and consumer of resources. We need to be part of the discussion on how to ensure Sonoma continues to thrive.” – Bruce Abbott, Associate Superintendent of Business, Sonoma Valley Unified School District

“The Springs Community Alliance is partnering with Sustainable Sonoma because it’s vitally important in the course of their important work that they hear and understand the vision of Springs residents. The Springs has 15,000 people...one-third of the entire Valley population. We have 50% more people than Sonoma town for instance. Our dreams are important and need to be heard. And this is a first step.” – Ellen Conlan, Vice Chair Springs Community Alliance,Springs Community Alliance

Sustainable Sonoma is exactly what our Valley needs at eactly the right time. Its leaders have carefully laid the groundwork to give us whwat we have lacked—a chance to understand the integrated nature of the complex challenges ahead of us, and choose our future together. I urge Impact100 to make a brave and catalutic investment not only in Sustainable Sonoma, but in all of us.” – Katherine Fulton, national philanthropy expert and co-author of Sonoma Valley Fund’s 2017, Hidden in Plain Sight

We are excited to participate in Sustainable Sonoma and supportive of the vision to tackle some of our larger social and environmental challenges through collaboration.—Melanie Parker, Deputy Director, Natural Resource Manager, Sonoma County Regional Parks

As Sustainable Valley recovers from the October fires, we need to think big and incorporate a variety of perspectives to ensure success. Instead of solving one problem while inadvertenly creating another, we need to find broad solutions that will benefit everyone. I’m incredibly supportive of Sustainable Sonoma, and grateful to them for bringing diverse stakeholders together through cooperation.” – Susan Gorin, District 1 Supervisor

“It takes everyone pushing in the same direction for change to happen.“This initiative is a foundation for this push.” – Juan Hernandez, Executive Director, La Luz Center

I am pleased to be part of the Sustainable Sonoma Council. The Valley needs a forum like this, to bring people together, or else we won’t be able to find good solutions to problems like sustainable tourism and affordable housing. It’s a great way to hear from a wide variety of people and find that we have some common ground to work from.”– Rachel Hundly, Sonoma City Council
