Petition for Removal of Ventura County Resolution 20-126 about Racism as a County Health Emergency
The Ventura County Board of Supervisors and County Administrators throughout the Behavioral Health departments used general statistics and the pressure of the BLM movement about race to create an emergency declaration to incorporate unconstitutional programs to try and solve a problem that does not exist in Ventura County.
Examples of this unjust Resolution include:
a) One person of a specific race dies two years earlier than another race
b) One race goes to a hospital more than other races
While there will always be racist people in any city or county, this resolution is identifying the entire County of Ventura as a racist county, and that the administrators will use our county as an example of how to stamp out racism and provide “equitable” care and lifestyle for people of color. This resolution is completely unconstitutional and racist.
The overwhelming majority of County citizens disagree with this embellishment and asks the Board of Supervisors to completely withdraw this resolution. In addition, any government or tax base funding, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) departments, marketing materials, et al, to create this unfounded accusation be immediately terminated.

  • Pledges to collaborate with the county’s law and justice agencies and the community to establish an advisory group to help foster meaningful discussions and to identify public concerns related to policing policies and procedures with regard to matters such as hiring, training, and misconduct; and
  • Pledges to establish a working group of health care subject matter experts and community stakeholders to study the delivery and improvement of health care services for underserved populations, including allocation of resources and personnel practices; and
