The Saint Paul Foundation’s Facing Race We’re All in This Together initiative received a grant of $1.8 million to expand its Saint Paul-focused anti-racism work to the entire state of Minnesota. The W.K. Kellogg Foundation awarded grants to 119 organizations as part of its America Healing initiative to support racial equity and healing.
“Our community has some very stark racial disparities, and racism has played a very real and insidious role in creating these imbalances,” said Carleen Rhodes, president and CEO of The Saint Paul Foundation. “Discomfort about racism prevents us from moving the conversation about racism forward. We are grateful to the Kellogg Foundation for the generous funding that enables us to share the Facing Race dialogue program throughout Minnesota with individuals, organizations and communities that are committed to undoing racism.”
