Message from the Diversity and Equity Committee Resources to Support the Community
There are few words that as co-chairs of the Diversity and Equity Committee we can say to underscore the gravitas of the situation in Minneapolis and Saint Paul. Many communities are without transit access, grocery stores, restaurants, and places of community resources. The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic has already made so many people vulnerable, and now those same people are faced with even more barriers to essential items. As planners we all know how important infrastructure like transit, walkable neighborhoods with businesses and grocery stores and the jobs that those places provide are. Since we don’t feel like there is much we can say, we want to find something we can do. Our committee has put together a list of actions you can do to be involved and give back during this time.
