MOORHEAD — A local humanitarian organization is hosting a celebration this weekend to launch an effort aimed at improving social and racial equity in the Fargo-Moorhead area.

Inclusive Moorhead, which is a Resilient Moorhead project, is set to begin at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 18, at Gooseberry Mound Park in Moorhead.

The event will include conversations on what can be done locally to improve social and racial equity. There will also be music, drummers, dancers, games and food.

Some of the questions organizers want to pose to participants include: What policies and processes would improve inclusion? How can diverse representation be increased in decision-making spaces? And how can culturally inclusive education be expanded?

Resilient Moorhead, run by the Moorhead Community Resilience Task Force, is an organization that focuses on bringing individuals and organizations together to solve problems. It's funded by the Bush Foundation Community Innovation Grant, according to the group's Facebook page.

Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
