"Write on" Series

The Greater Mankato Diversity Council invites you to join us on a community-changing journey!

 

The “WRITE on RACE to be RIGHT on RACE” community journaling initiative hopes to ignite community awareness and education about the causes and effects of racial divisiveness on our community. This innovative approach will harness the power of individual and collective community reflection, reaction, contemplation, and dialogue on race to establish a baseline of the racial experience, racial sentiment, and racial consciousness of our community. This two-year initiative will serve as a catalyst to inform and direct future organizational and community efforts at combating and eliminating racism.

The “WRITE on RACE to be RIGHT on RACE” community journaling initiative is a unique and one-of-a-kind endeavor to help our community be RIGHT on race relations!

 

The “WRITE on RACE to be RIGHT on RACE” community journaling initiative harnesses the power and impact of reflection, reaction, contemplation, and dialogue on race that journaling provides. This journaling coupled with “harvesting” sessions where we dialogue about what was written in our journals in an effort to synthesize our thoughts to find common threads and themes. “Harvesting” sessions allow to us learn from our truths, experiences and stories in order to robustly apply them forward.
