Welcome to the Official Podcast by the League of Minnesota Cities!

Oct 11, 2019

When we talk about race equity in city government, we’re talking about city services, policies, and practices that work for everyone in a community, regardless of their race. Cities — even smaller ones and/or those in Greater Minnesota — have an opportunity to lead in this work. Hear Gordon Goodwin, Midwest region project manager with the Government Alliance on Race and Equity, discuss his recent work with a cohort of Minnesota cities. The group has worked on using race equity analysis to begin to address unintentional biases in everyday practices. Willmar Mayor Marv Calvin, a participant in the cohort, shares examples of his city’s race equity efforts and lessons he’s learned as Willmar strives to be a welcoming community for all.
