Advancing Racial Equity with Community Cafés
We conducted Community Cafés with local parents and asked a simple question: what are the hopes and dreams for your children? The discussion was not structured by the facilitators. Instead, parents led the conversation and decided which topics were most important to them. African American and Hispanic families, the largest minority groups with children under the age of 5, were the focus of these cafés. This document reviews all four of the meetings and commonalities that were found between both communities.
