Apr 8
Having conversations about Race provides participants with the opportunity to learn about a topic, enhanced by the personal experiences and perceptions of the groups. This discussion series will base the conversations on a video or article related to the topic, followed by small group discussions.

On Thursday, April 8, the discussion will be based on The Binary Code of Racism and How It is Learned. The material will delve into how our racial history and biases are passed on to new generations and are reflected in our behavior.

Presented in partnership with the Ramsey County Library and the City of Shoreview/Shoreview Human Rights Commission.

Once you register, you will receive an email with pre-work (readings and/or video viewings, about one hour) about a week before the discussion.

This discussion-based program will not be recorded

Tour of Tiny Homes Sacred Settlement

Sacred Settlements are an innovative, research-based way to address long-term homelessness by developing holistic tiny home communities in cooperation with a faith community.   Some of our local faith communities, including New Life Presbyterian and Prince of Peace Lutheran, have expressed interest in supporting tiny homes projects.
In a tiny home community, each resident has their own tiny home, and as a whole, the community shares facilities and amenities such as kitchen and dining spaces, bathrooms, laundry, gardens, workshops, and gathering areas. The land is managed by a religious or social organization to maintain standards for safety and welfare. Specially-trained missional-neighbors live in the settlement and work with all the members to ensure that the settlement is healthy and thriving. A team of advocate-befrienders wrap around each inhabitant coming off the streets to build trusted relationships, walk alongside them as they journey to meet their life goals, and connect them with valuable support services.
Settled (Settled.org) is unveiling the nation’s first model Sacred Settlement. A demonstration of five unoccupied tiny homes, a greenhouse, and a common gathering area are available for tour at Woodland Hills Church in Maplewood to bring awareness to a community-first approach to ending chronic homelessness. The one-hour tour begins with an exclusive screening of an 11-minute documentary of this movement, followed by a walking tour of the homes, and plans to bring about the first occupied Sacred Settlement.    Health safeguards in place.
