Read more about the Rural Communities Equity Action Guide under our Partnering Projects tab!
Over the past two years, Growth & Justice has worked with Region Five Development Commission (R5DC) to produce the Equity Action Guide for Rural Communities, created by a team of community champions from Growth & Justice with the support of the R5DC staff and project team members. It responds to requests from rural Minnesotans for a road map on how to create equitable economic ecosystems (E3). The guide shares stories from people who have worked on equity and inclusion in small to mid-sized communities for a long time. These case studies showcase emerging practices in equitable and inclusive community and economic development. You can read the Rural Communities Equity Action Guide below or at this link.
