Community Agreement Page

This Community Agreement has been established to make the MEEC a safe space where all folks can participate in JEDIA (Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Access) discussions openly and without fear. We understand that discomfort is inevitable, especially in dialogue about JEDIA concepts. It is not talking about these issues that creates divisiveness – divisiveness already exists in our society. It is through dialogue – even when uncomfortable – that healing and change begin.We will refer to this Community Agreement at the beginning of each session.
