The MCEA Equity Study Group began meeting June 30, 2020 on zoom to discuss the ways that Community Education, across the state of MN, can be more fully representing all of our communities and how racial bias is influencing our work. The meetings take place every other week for one hour and the topics that we discuss bubble up from the group. There have been three book club sessions that have come out of this Equity Study Group, reading How to Be an AntiRacist, Me and White Supremacy, and A Good Time for the Truth. The discussions have been centered on how to incorporate the insights from the books into our work in community education and our role as community education leaders. All are welcome to join the group!
Contact Kristen Stuenkel at to be added to the list.
Meeting dates are all at 1:00 via Zoom:
March 22, 2022
