DEIA Statement – Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site

Jul 1, 2018


Welcome to the DEIA Statement page of La Historia Society, a premier website dedicated to the preservation and celebration of Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site. As an integral part of the Community and Society category, we aim to create an inclusive space where visitors can learn about the rich history and diverse stories that shaped the site and the surrounding area.


At La Historia Society, we strongly believe that diversity is a cornerstone of a thriving community. Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site has a deep and multifaceted history influenced by various cultures, perspectives, and traditions. We are committed to honoring and embracing this diversity by highlighting the stories of individuals from different backgrounds who made significant contributions throughout history. Our goal is to provide an authentic and comprehensive representation, promoting understanding, empathy, and respect.


Equity is another fundamental principle we uphold at La Historia Society. We recognize that historical narratives have often been biased and exclusionary, marginalizing certain voices. Our ongoing efforts focus on rectifying these imbalances by centering the experiences of historically marginalized communities. Through meticulous research, we aim to shed light on stories that have been overlooked, ensuring that every individual's legacy is given the recognition it deserves.


We are dedicated to fostering an inclusive environment where everyone feels welcome and represented. Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site has a unique ability to connect people of different backgrounds, fostering a sense of belonging and shared heritage. We actively engage with diverse communities, encouraging their participation in our events, programs, and initiatives. By inviting various perspectives and experiences, we enrich the collective understanding of history and its ongoing relevance.


Accessibility is a critical aspect of our commitment to DEIA at Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site. We strive to provide equal access to our facilities, exhibits, and resources for all visitors, regardless of physical or cognitive abilities. Our ongoing improvements ensure that everyone can engage with historical information through multiple means, including audio descriptions, tactile materials, and digital resources. We will continue to enhance our accessibility initiatives to create an inclusive experience for all.
