"Dear Community Member,
We are delighted to announce a variety of opportunities for community members to learn more about diversity, inclusion, and equity in Hastings. The City of Hastings and Hastings Public Schools are joining efforts to provide the community with information about diversity in Hastings, the perspectives of diverse persons, and strategies to ensure that each person has access to all of the fantastic resources and assets Hastings has to offer. We are committed to the sustained effort and attention that such a broad and deep community-wide initiative requires. We invite you to join us in this journey as an individual, an organization, a community leader, a business, or with a your family or a group of friends.
Please join us on Sunday, April 29, 2018 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Hastings High School commons for the “Hastings, All Are Welcome” event. The highlight of the evening will be the proclamation of a joint resolution by the Hastings City Council and the Hastings Public Schools School Board. The resolution articulates the common beliefs, aspirations, and commitments of the city and the school district. We will provide information about diversity within our community, current efforts to ensure equity and inclusion, and opportunities for you to learn and help to determine what we can do together.
