The City of Sanford is committed to ensuring it is inclusive and accepting of all people because the strength of our community is its diversity. Building on the national initiative to create more equitable communities, the City of Sanford, in partnership with Valencia College’s Peace and Justice Institute, is hosting community conversations to identify inequities and develop strategies to address them.

Workshop goals include:

  • Develop trust and sensitivity to support interaction with one another across cultural, ethnic and racial lines.
  • Strengthen interpersonal relationships through the sharing of personal stories and experiences.
  • Increase awareness and understanding of embedded injustices in healthcare, education, housing, finance, law enforcement, criminal justice, community development, employment and other systems.
  • Expand citizen engagement to allow for healing and reconciliation as a pathway to community resilience.
