In 2021, Northfield area leaders conducted a survey to learn directly from community members what their lived experiences were in regards to equity and belonging.
The goal of the survey was to learn more about residents’ experiences in the community and to identify strengths and challenges related to equity and inclusion, with a desired result of improving the livelihoods of residents most impacted by systemic inequities, including Black, Indigenous, Latine, and Asian members. Recognizing that current conversations were based on anecdotal information, the leaders sought to gather baseline data that would inform the work of all of the NREEC’s groups.
The community survey results will continue to be the catalyst for the NREEC’s work as we address the challenges and opportunities that exist in shifting systems to ensure all community members feel safe, included, and a sense of belonging in Northfield.
