About this Event

“Mitákuye Oyás'iŋ” is a phrase from the Lakota language that means “We Are All Related.” It reflects the world view of interconnectedness. St. Croix Family Resource Center, Youth Service Bureau, and SoWashCo Cares invites you to join in our efforts to help build inclusive communities through diversity, equity and inclusion conversations. If we truly want to be a community that welcomes, embraces and treats all people in a healthy way, then we have a responsibility to educate ourselves and others and be willing to have uncomfortable conversations.
