Race and Equity Advisory Committee

The Race and Equity Advisory Committee began work in 2020 to acknowledge the current climate regarding race and equity, in response to a demonstrated need in MRPA and our communities. We look forward to working together on this effort.

Are you interested in diversity, equity and inclusion in parks & recreation? Join the Race and Equity Advisory Committee (REAC). The MRPA REAC was formed to assist the association, its members and member agencies to deliver services through the lens of diversity, equity, and inclusion.  The committee will help to solidify the MRPA’s commitment to addressing systemic racism and inequities which persist throughout Minnesota, using park and recreation agencies as agents of change. Apply to join REAC today: https://forms.gle/nkd2NpBZYL91KnSd7

The committee has hosted race and equity spring and fall workshops and sessions at the MRPA annual conferences.  They provide MRPA members with more information on this initiative.  To view past newsletters, visit the links below:
