Glover Equity Committee receives $10K grant

GLOVER — The Glover Equity Committee recently announced that they have received a $10,000 Equitable and Inclusive Communities Grant.

The grant comes from the Vermont Community Foundation and will assist the committee in sponsoring training and events toward the goal of promoting a more welcoming and inclusive culture in Glover and surrounding communities.

Next year, the committee says they will sponsor racial literacy and cultural humility training.

The eight-part training will be led by Sha’an Mouliert, M.Ed.

Mouliert is a consultant, community organizer, educator, artist, and co-founder of the African American Alliance of the Northeast Kingdom.

The committee also says they plan to hold a nonviolent communication workshop provided by The King Center.

Organizers say the training serves as a mechanism for changing the way people approach problems, conflict, tension, violence, and differences.

The grant will also enable the committee to sponsor cultural events featuring music, dance, and food from a variety of cultures as well as other educational components.
