Our Work Together
The Necessary Conversations program continues
We bring workshops on different topics and participants get small grants as part of the necessary conversations.
With other groups, NorthSTAR, Stand Up Northfield and others we created the Northfield Antirracist Action Coalition, NAAC
The Antiracist Coalition, NAAC, continues to explore ways to make our community a welcoming one for everybody.
