Opening Minds through Cultural Exchange
A Peacemaking Project by Sue B.
What is the injustice we are solving?
Racism is a problem in our small, rural community. Our community isn’t ready to hear about healing racism or white privilege. A discussion would only further close minds at this point. What we need is a slow-but-sure process and the first step, we believe, is simply exposing members of our community to people of another race or culture — to show that they’re people too.
Our Compassionate Solution:
To solve this injustice of racism
we will address rural youth with limited exposure to other cultures
by holding a cultural exchange program
