Hopkins Race & Equity Initiative

Hopkins Race & Equity Initiative is a collaborative effort creating opportunities to increase awareness and understanding of race, equity and diversity, and promoting a sense of community that welcomes and values all residents. Members include Hopkins Public Schools, Hopkins Police, and Gethsemane Lutheran Church. 

HREI Coming Events

On May 8 the Hopkins Race and Equity Initiative hosted our second "Let’s Talk About Race in Hopkins" event. Over 150 neighbors were in attendance and Pastor Sarah led a panel discussion with representatives from the Somali, East Indian, Latino and African American communities. After the panel presentation there was table discussion about what each of us can do to make our community one of welcome and hospitality for all people.

The next HREI sponsored event is the Celebration of Community July 1510 am-8 pm at the Hopkins Center for the Arts. Stop by for a celebration featuring music, dancing, stories, exhibits and arts and crafts.
