Río Hondo College is an educational and community partner committed to advancing social justice and equity as an antiracist institution that collectively invests in all students’ academic and career pathways that lead to attainment of degree, certificate, transfer, and lifelong-learning goals.
We acknowledge that Río Hondo College exists in an area that has been the land of the Gabrieleño/Tongva San Gabriel Band of Mission Indians and the Gabrieleño Band of Mission Indians – Kizh Nation. We recognize both nations and their spiritual connection to the earth and as the first stewards and traditional caretakers of these lands. We thank our indigenous brothers and sisters for their strength, perseverance, and resistance. We also wish to acknowledge any other indigenous people who now call these areas their home, and join their struggle to maintain their cultures, languages, perspectives, and identities in our diverse district.
