Equity, Cultural Sensitivity, and Inclusion Task Force

Cook County Forest Preserves District


This is a remote assignment. To access the meeting, go to the Cook County Commissioner Alma Anaya’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/AlmaAnaya7th.

The live stream should appear at that link, at the top of the feed, though it may not appear until at or a few minutes after the scheduled start time. If you don’t see it right away, wait a few moments and try refreshing the page.

The commission is reviewing site names within the Forest Preserves as part of their racial equity efforts, and may choose to rename some sites, similar to how students in Chicago got the Chicago Park District to rename Stephen A. Douglas Park after Frederick and Anna Douglass.
