What is meant by “Decolonization?” Not only of our institutions, but also of thoughts and behaviors directly influenced by the residuals of colonization. Listen to Marria Evbuoma of [https://racetozerowaste.org/] and Richmond District Rising [https://www.facebook.com/richmonddistrictrising/] as she explores the meaning and importance of decolonizing thoughts, actions, and spaces. How do we recognize and legitimately decolonize in order to ensure equity and build community for all? How do those who have been colonized go about decolonizing?
Marria Evbuoma is a mother, writer, and zero waste educator living in San Francisco. She is also the representative for her district for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission’s Citizen Advisory Committee focusing on waste water.
