In this spirit, GHR has established the Twin Cities Racial Equity Initiative – a program area focused locally on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota. Our purpose and values will guide this new focus, which will seek to center and elevate community in eliminating systemic racism. Our long-term goal is to refresh our existing program areas with a focus on racial equity, enabling us to deepen our commitment to racial equity across our program areas.
GHR is simultaneously acting for racial equity on an organizational level. With the guidance of racial equity coaches, staff are engaging in deep reflection on their individual identities, and the unique roles we each play in disrupting systemic racism and the implications this has for our work. We are committed to transforming our organization and our work as we build a more just, equitable future for all.
