At our City, we are just starting to look at ways to be more welcoming to all and encourage equity and inclusion. We've just created an E&I team to start conversations. We are focused on internal versus external at this point. In your opinion, what would be step one for this team?
Nancy Sailer
53:37
I believe the biggest responsibility lies with those of us who are white and have privilege that we often don't think about. What are three basic steps that could have great impact on equalizing opportunity, education and economics in all populations?
Buck Malick
54:20
I recently learned that Wisconsin cities had "sundown laws" that prohibited blacks staying within the city limits overnight. Are you aware of any in the St. Croix Valley?
Marsha Shotley
54:51
After the unrest of this summer, there have been many DE&I positions added to corporations/businesses. And, many leadership positions now have been filled, which is great. What else could we do in our corporations/businesses that can continue these positive changes?
Kerry Reis
55:43
Many of the residents in our valley have had limited exposure to people of color. Sometimes this gets mired into politics or an inability to see their own privilege. What steps should we be proactively taking to build bridges towards a more inclusive community?
Judith Freund
56:52
Is not what Dr. Green has just said progressive policies don’t drill down into the population exactly what Joe Biden faces now

George Floyd's murder continue to burn in MN

What examples do we have of societies where the price of culture change isn’t too high? Where they’ve sustained the will it takes to decrease the chasm.
Stephani - StoryArk
01:00:12
How can we continually create and protect psychologically safe spaces where candor from traditionally marginalized voices are nurtured, discomfort with what is shared is considered an opportunity to grow, and authentic sharing is welcomed instead of punished? Does it start small and radiate out, or begin big and filter down? Or, is it both/and?
Nancy Sailer
01:03:54
Those of us living in predominately white communities need to be bussed into communities of color and get involved and vice versa.
Ann Herzog Drewiske
01:06:16
Has Dr Green participated in Northside Achievement Zones (NAZ) tour? Does he think it is a good place to start understanding from white folks post-Covid of course).
Kerry Reis
01:07:14
Many in our community equate BLM with riots and violence. How can we break through this mindset?
Cristina deSobrino
01:07:53
Do you advocate that President Biden utilize the same tactics that Nellie Francis did to bring disparate parties together?
Heidi Link
01:10:30
Ann, I thought of the same thing… wondering if NAZ (Northside Achievement Zones) or Marnita’s Table would be suggested next steps post-COVID to build the community and foster the conversations suggested?
Mark Hove
01:12:14
Thanks for sharing info about NAZ and Marnita’s Table
