When the WELCA executive board met (via ZOOM) in early May, there was collective agreement that we could, and should, continue to push forward with Courageous Conversations on ZOOM, and that, as COVID-19 was shining a light on racial disparities in our communities, we should take a closer look at ways to address racism. Little did we know, then, that within days, we would all witness the brutality and senseless murder of George Floyd at the hands of the police right here in Minnesota, and that this would ignite an ever growing outcry across the country and beyond.

So in the midst of an ever changing landscape we are forging ahead with our commitment to provide a platform for understanding systemic racism and promoting anti-racist actions.
