Willmar meeting will spark dialogue on racial equity in rural Minnesota


WILLMAR -- Perspectives and personal experiences with racial equity, from economic development to the worlds of education and health care, will be collected at a gathering Thursday in Willmar.

The information ultimately will make its way into a legislative report card and action agenda being compiled by the nonprofit Organizing Apprenticeship Project. The goal: to improve racial equity for Minnesotans who are poor or of color.
