Reimagining FREC

We realize that FREC needs to take stock of how we are relevant in today’s world. Much has changed in the world since we started fourteen years ago. In January FREC began an intensive effort called the FREC Reimagined Project to ensure that FREC’s mission, vision, values and programs continue to be inclusive, relevant and effective.

We invite anyone to join who is committed to working against systemic racism, white privilege/supremacy, and colonialism.

What does FREC do?

2024 Overcoming Racism Conference

Across the centuries racism has destroyed lives and communities. FREC’s 2024 conference theme will look at the grievous harm racist policies and practices have caused the intersectional identities of Black, Indigenous, and other Communities of Color in the United States in housing, employment, criminal justice, education, and other sectors of our society. The conference will also highlight significant work underway in these sectors to bring justice and repair to those who have been harmed.

Racial Equity
Learning Series (RELI)

RELI is six online learning sessions, for two hours (January-May). The 2024 RELI Learning Series aims to increase understanding about racial equity and empower participants to work for change within themselves, and to lead in their own organizations and communities. We provide a forum to unlearn and relearn from each other and translate new knowledge into action. 

Shared Learning Community Circle

FREC’s online shared learning community circle is a way to share ideas and more with others who are interested in learning together to gain new perspectives, exchange bold ideas and build knowledge.

Greater Minnesota Collaboration

FREC seeks ways to connect with and support organizations in Greater Minnesota working on racial justice and equity in their communities.
