This diverse group of concerned Clay County citizens originally coalesced around the need to remove the Confederate monument in Fairview Cemetery in Liberty, Missouri. It soon became apparent, after working on that project for several months, that to address the issues of racism and inclusion that resulted from the responses against removal of the monument, the group needed to expand its work into developing education programs, as well as other initiatives geared toward creating a fully inclusive community. This decision was also powered by positive feedback from many who wished to know more and join in the cause. The group includes a number of long-term, even lifelong, members of the community who are committed to its constant improvement.
“Inclusion is not a strategy to help people fit into the systems and structures which exists in our societies; it is about transforming those systems and structures to make it better for everyone. Inclusion is about creating a better world for everyone.”
— Diane Richler
