Quest towards racial equity
"Cultivating Justice: A Quest Toward Racial Equity" is a collection of projects and resources made by and for people in the Cedar Valley to promote racial justice and activate systemic change in our communities. The Quest’s collection of local materials includes essays, videos, performances of poetry, artwork, podcasts, toolkits, events, and more (through UNI).
For 6-weeks, participants on the Quest will receive weekly newsletters that will guide them as they cultivate habits of consciously and consistently practicing anti-racism. Each week’s newsletter includes a welcome video from a community leader, a quotation to contemplate, a community assignment to complete, and questions for reflection and discussion. Over the course of six-week, participants will:
Week 1: Listen and learn about the experiences of others
Week 2: Define terms to guide and support community anti-racism initiatives
Week 3: Explore racial issues in specific contexts (i.e policing, healthcare, education)
Week 4: Locate local initiatives and programs
Week 5: Act in ways that promote antiracism
Week 6: Recognize the role of rest in promoting community healing
Anyone can participate in the Quest. However, materials and projects are most appropriate for people over the age of 18.
