An action group is working to make Stratford a more inclusive place.
C.A.R.E. -- "Citizens Addressing Racial Equity" -- is forming action teams to make the Stratford community stronger, more inclusive and vibrant by exploring practical ways to address racial equity and promote cultural competence.
Do you know what "cultural competence" is? The U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services defines cultural competency as: "Cultural and linguistic competence is a set of congruent behaviors, attitudes, and policies that come together in a system, agency, or among professionals that enables effective work in cross-cultural situations."
Stratford's C.A.R.E. group is continuing to learn, develop and grow! We would love to see you at our next meeting:
Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2011
7 p.m., Rm 110
The Birdseye Municipal Complex Birdseye Street
C.A.R.E. welcomes our new Co-Chairs:
TaShun Bowden-Lewis and John Hutchinson
