New Deadline for Racial Equity Analysis: Friday, August 5

DEADLINE EXTENDED! Submit your proposal for the Racial Equity Analysis by 5 p.m. on Friday, August 5

The Streets.mn Anti-Racism Committee is extending the deadline to submit a proposal for a racial equity analysis to 5 p.m. on Friday, August 5.

This racial equity analysis will examine the Streets.mn board practices, editorial policies and strategies for engaging with our readership. Transportation and land use issues are closely intertwined with racial justice. Our organization wants to present a greater range of perspectives on these issues, in our board, among our writers and editors, and in our readership.

Read more about what this request for proposal (RFP) means for Streets.mn in our previous blog post.

We are extending the RFP deadline to accommodate for busy summer schedules and to ensure more equitable engagement in Streets.mn projects.

You may access the full RFP for this racial equity analysis here.

To apply, email your proposal to Streets.mn board co-chair Tim Brackett (timbrackett@streets.mn) with the title “Attention: Anti-Racism Committee.”
