‘Understanding Intersection of Race, Class and Poverty to Bring St. Anthony Together’

St. Anthony Villagers for Equity and Community will host community-convener Jodi Pfarr on Saturday, Sept. 14, from 12:30 to 5 p.m. at the St. Anthony Village Community Center, 3301 Silver Lake Road NE. 

Pfarr will lead a free community training called “Understanding Intersection of Race, Class and Poverty to Bring St. Anthony Together.” The half-day workshop aims to bring residents together to identify and move forward in addressing issues of social and racial disparities within the suburb.

St. Anthony Villagers for Equity and Community is a nonprofit incorporated in 2018, but formed in 2017 by people of color in the city. It aims to support racial equity in education and the community, address inequity in local governance and support religious liberties.

Pfarr is herself a Minnesotan, who brings the knowledge she has gained from years of hands-on experience within the criminal justice system, social services, religious institutions and nonprofit organizations. 

“This is the beginning of a journey that will be moved forward by St. Anthony Villagers for Equity and Community and members of St. Anthony Village,” Xavier Bell, one of the event’s organizers, said of the workshop.  

“Understanding Intersection of Race, Class and Poverty to Bring St. Anthony Together” is free, but donations are welcomed. Contact the organization to register at www.saveccommunity.org/contact.
