Diverse Community Leader Award
Natalie Moser (Huntington Beach) -Natalie leads and/or supports numerous human relations programs and youth activities including the HBLISTENS Conversation Project, Cultural Heritage Month events and programs, the Youth Voices HB Essay and Art Contest, and the district-wide Student Day of Dialogue in the Huntington Beach Union High School District.
Natalie envisions a future of hope— one where social justice is achieved, and the Beloved Community exists. She envisions a future where all people are treated with dignity regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation or housing situation. Natalie serves as the chair of the HB Human Relations Task Force (HBHRTF). In this role, she helps create spaces like the Student Day of Dialogue that helps give voice to high school youth. She also created the HBLISTENS Conversation Project, which seeks to build conversational bridges to increase understanding, reveal common ground, and work towards solutions within organizations and neighborhoods.
In conjunction with OC Human Relations, under Natalie’s leadership, HBHRTF created the Youth Voices HB Essay and Art Contest. The city-wide contest gives students a platform to share their stories, experiences, and expressions on human relations issues of intolerance, diversity and free speech. As a new leader of the Human Relations Task Force, Natalie felt that it was crucial that she get the city’s officials to support and understand the important work of the HBHRTF. She believes that when elected city leaders affirm their commitment to support the city’s Declaration of Policy on Human Dignity, they send a message to everyone that Huntington Beach is a safe and inclusive city. The HBHRTF, the City of Huntington Beach, and Orange County are fortunate to have a resident and community leader such as Natalie Moser.
