McFARLAND EQUITY PROJECT
Our common goal is to address racial inequities, seek justice by promoting anti-racist policies and practices, and create and maintain inclusive and welcoming environments in the Village of McFarland.
OUR COMMON GOAL
The McFarland Equity Project is a grassroots racial justice organization that was developed out of the passion, courage and needs of students in our community. At a rally on June 3, 2020, Laëtitia Hollard, Sean Chislom, and others used their voices to highlight racial issues in McFarland that they and others have experienced. The rally motivated the community to connect and develop an organizational structure to make changes in three areas: the COMMUNITY, EDUCATION (the school district), and the VILLAGE.
