Inclusive Sign Project
Posted 10/10/18

“Everyone is Welcome Here” in the San Ramon Valley


“Everyone is Welcome Here” signs are popping up around the San Ramon Valley thanks to a coordinated effort of students, community, business, government, parents and education leaders from throughout the San Ramon Valley.


The goal of the project is to create a clear message that the San Ramon Valley welcomes all individuals, regardless of race, color, age, ethnicity, religion, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability, gender, gender identity or gender expression.


The signs signify that the San Ramon Valley Unified School District and its partners strive for a diverse, welcoming and truly inclusive community. To support this message, a community-based committee worked with students and teachers from San Ramon Valley Unified School District to develop the Inclusive Sign Project. Students from Dougherty Valley and California High School art programs worked with the committee to develop concepts for a welcoming sign, and then worked together to develop a sign that can be displayed in businesses, schools, homes, places of worship and organizations throughout the San Ramon Valley.  


“By displaying the sign, you help us achieve our goal by sending a message of welcome at your place of business, worship, learning or gathering, regardless of background,” said SRVUSD Superintendent Rick Schmitt.  “You can further support this message by discussing the purpose of this sign with all members of your organization. We are grateful to the City of San Ramon for being one of our first partners in this work, displaying the sign on the digital marquee in front of City Hall.”


Residents, businesses and community members interested in joining SRVUSD in our endeavor to create a more inclusive San Ramon Valley, should contact The District is also interested in finding a partner to help with the cost of printing so that the signs can be distributed more widely.
