We choose to be a catalyst and conduit for improving the fabric of our community.
Message on Racism
New Richmond may be removed from protests happening in the Twin Cities and across the country, but racism, hatred, and the fear of “others” happens everywhere. As a white-led organization in a majority-white community, we must listen and learn. This starts with listening to what black, brown, and indigenous people are saying. We must examine our unconscious biases and systems that contribute to inequality and racism.
New Richmond has a long history of caring for its residents. Now is the time for us to come together, speak out against racism and hatred, and assure that our community is a place where we cherish and value the lives of everyone.
“I wish I could say that racism and prejudice were only distant memories. We must dissent from the indifference. We must dissent from the apathy. We must dissent from the fear, the hatred and the mistrust…We must dissent because America can do better, because America has no choice but to do better.” ― Thurgood Marshall
