Multi-Cultural

Sonoma County where we live and work is an ethnically diverse community. Almost one fifth of the population is Latino. We have large communities of Camobodians, Laotian and Vietnamese, Eritreans, Fijians and other non-English speaking as their primary language. Other cultures exist as well including Native American and East Indian. We strive to offer culturally appropriate information, advocacy and training of value to these communities also.

In addition to our Spanish End of Life Issues training, we have substantial Spanish language material in the Journey Project Resource Center and here on this website you can display a list of all the Spanish language resources. We will develop other non-English resources over time as we can locate them and welcome any leads to good resources we should include on this site.

Research of value to understanding cultural issues is provided through annotated links and helps clarify end of life practices, taboos, rituals, etc among various cultures.
