Together, One Lincoln

We are disappointed to share that the Center For Rural Affairs is unable to provide Implicit Bias Training for all members and staff of our coop at this time.

As pointed out by concerned Member Owners – the harm caused by our inaction goes deeper than implicit bias and an introductory training is insufficient for our current circumstances. We are continuing to dialogue with the Center for Rural Affairs and other organizations about how we can help our coop community rebuild trust between staff, management, member owners, and the board. We will have more to share on anti-racist training opportunities in the near future.

In the meantime, we want to take the opportunity that was already scheduled for Thursday, July 30th @ 7PM  and invite any interested member owner or staff to join the board for facilitated small group conversations about racism.
Following the format of Together, One Lincoln, this gathering will provide an opportunity and space to learn from one another and create dialogue in order to drive action on racial inequality.

We hope that you will consider joining us. Email board@openharvest.coop if you are interested in attending and we will share the Zoom link and meeting materials in advance.

Thank you for your continued engagement with the coop and helping our community heal during these challenging times.
