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. 


Community Read
Everyone is encouraged to read A Good Time for the Truth: Race in Minnesota edited by Sun Yung Shin. What is it like to live as person of color in Minnesota? Sixteen of the state’s best writers answer that question in this book published by the Minnesota Historical Society Press.

Books are available at church for $13.

Thursday, October 12 at 6:30 pm all are invited to a Community Conversation with the editor and two of the contributing authors at the Eisenhower Community Center. 

This event is sponsored by the Hopkins Race & Equity Initiative (HREI) and organized by a team from the Hopkins School District, Friends of the Hopkins Library and Gethsemane.
