CBI coaches have been working with the Peninsula Community Collaborative for several years. The Collaborative convenes and represents residents of the Samoa Peninsula, which consists of 4 unincorporated towns along a peninsula in located Humboldt County. Key issues and concerns identified in this community include lack of a feeling of safety in certain Peninsula areas/ settings, including tsunami and earthquake prone area, and a lack of infrastructure to support pedestrian and bicyclist safety. Through community organizing, education, and engaging decision-makers, the Collaborative has developed and shared robust disaster preparedness plan updates, improved infrastructure for pedestrians in neighborhood of Manila, and achieved multiple County policy changes.
