Are you interested in meaningful discussion about issues that separate us in our community, including race, gender and cultural differences? Do you want to take a stand against prejudice and oppression? Are you ready to do the reflective work necessary to create a more inclusive community?

Consider applying for SEED (Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity) equity training that is offered by Skokie Cares, a community group that is partnering with local community organizations to lead SEED training for people who live, work or have children who currently attend school in Skokie. Skokie Cares will accept applications through August 22, 2021 for SEED cohorts that begin in fall 2021 and meet monthly through late spring 2022. The mission of the National SEED Project is to drive personal, organizational, and community change toward greater equity and diversity. 

Through activities and conversations often stimulated by videos and readings during the nine SEED sessions offered by Skokie Cares, participants explore their own awareness and learning related to topics such as racism, race, gender, sexual identity, socioeconomic status, religion, abilities, and age, and how these factors currently impact their school, workplace, and/or community. By offering personal stories and reflections, listening to others' stories and reflections, and learning experientially and collectively, participants are challenged by SEED to deepen understanding of themselves and to connect their individual experiences to the wider systemic context. Individuals who complete this training often look for ways to help create more inclusive, just and equitable communities.

The Village of Skokie, Skokie Public Library, Skokie Park District, numerous Skokie school districts and other community organizations belong to Skokie Cares. The 2021-2022 SEED cohorts offered by Skokie Cares take place at several different day and time schedules to accommodate a wide variety of community participants.
