"RIGHT" on RACE Work Sessions

Write on Race



We have reached the final quarter theme of this effort!  Seven themes examining the impact of RACE on the "Past, Present, and Future", "Social Impacts" , "Criminal Justice", "Education", "Income", "Housing", and "Health" have been deeply, intentionally and authentically engaged with. We have done tremendous individual and collective work to reflect on these themes, journal our reactions and thoughts and dialogue honestly with each other. THANK YOU for your dedication and commitment to this first-of-its-kind initiative!


WRITE on RACE to be RIGHT on RACE Final Quarter Theme:




In this final quarter, we will be taking what we have learned - the knowledge, insights and wisdom - and applying it to possible solutions on how to make our community more racially just and inclusive! Over the last quarter we will gather three times to develop recommendations that will be unveiled to the community on August 6, 2018 at the WRITE on RACE to be RIGHT on RACE Community Celebration.



The three "RIGHT" on RACE work session dates and themes are:


Monday, June 4: RACE & Education


Monday, June 18: RACE & Income; RACE & Housing


Monday, June 25: RACE & Criminal Justice; RACE & Health



The agenda for each night is as follows:


6:30p - 7p: Brief Recap of Quarter Theme(s)


7p - 8p: "RIGHT" on RACE Work groups


8p - 8:30p: Report out and Rough Drafts of "RIGHT" on RACE Recommendations


All "RIGHT" on RACE Work Sessions will take place at Shared Spaces, 127 S. Second Street in Downtown Mankato.



Please mark your calendars and join us as we apply what we have learned to develop recommendations on how to make our community more racially just and "RIGHT" on RACE!
