There are several ways you can support FREC, by volunteering, by providing financial support, and by spreading the word about our programs to friends and colleagues.
Volunteer Opportunities: Volunteer opportunities include participating in the Overcoming Racism Conference planning, being a Conference volunteer, or helping with the Leadership Institute or other FREC programs. The best way to get started is by attending one of our monthly planning meetings and meeting others who are involved. We invite anyone to join who is committed to working against systemic racism, white privilege/supremacy, and colonialism. We meet monthly on the 3rd Thursday of the month, 9-11 am at Ruby Hunt Conference room (Suite 80) in the Community Action of Ramsey & Washington Counties building at 450 N Syndicate St., St Paul, MN 55104.
Financial Support: We always are seeking sponsorships for the Overcoming Racism conference and donations to support other FREC activities. Sponsorships and donations help keep the conference affordable to all by providing scholarships. Sponsors get their logo listed in our program, and depending on the sponsorship amount may qualify for a free conference registration. Cash donations of any amount are welcome. Donations should be made to our fiscal agent, Cherokee Park United Church (CPUC), 371 Baker St W, St Paul, MN 55107. Please indicate the donation is to support FREC. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law if they are made payable to CPUC.
If you are interested in being a conference sponsor or making an in-kind donation, please contact us (as soon as we have updated email we will post it.)
