What: Local tribal members and community leaders are hosting a webinar on the campaign to change the name of Sq**w Valley. The webinar will cover the racist history of the word sq**w, and its connection to the degradation and sexual violence that Native American women continue to face.
The webinar will also discuss where current advocacy efforts stand, including the Fresno County Board of Supervisors’ decision to ignore calls from the community to replace the name, and the recent full page advertisement in the Fresno Bee publicizing the issue.
The webinar is open to the press and members of the public.
