About Norwalk Speaks!
Norwalk Speaks! is a movement, a conversation, and a mission to make Norwalk a community that is welcoming, equitable and inclusive to all people. Led By Us & Associates spearheads this bold and courageous work around diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) for the City of Norwalk. A city full of cultural and diverse people will become stronger as we facilitate conversations, build bridges of trust and partnership, and root out real and/or perceived injustices and inequalities to ensure that the municipality will conduct itself in an equitable, diverse, and inclusive manner going forward.
Over the next few months,
Led by Us & Associates will be in your face (in the best ways possible) about all things Norwalk. We’re asking you to share your stories, your experiences, and your opinions so that we can get a full, robust picture of all aspects of Norwalk life. How will we find you and your amazing stories? We will be out and about in your neighborhood, we will be hosting events and workshops, and we will be hosting a social media platform where you can engage in conversations, participate in surveys, and share your photos and stories about life in Norwalk. Your insights will help us understand what’s working and what’s not working, and will guide us in our recommendations to the City for their ongoing DEI work.
What’s in it for you? The success of this project depends upon your participation, so speak up, Norwalkians! We want to know where you feel the real problems are so that we can guide the City towards real solutions. We also want to help foster a greater sense of connection between Norwalk residents and their local government, small businesses, arts and culture, nonprofit and service organizations, neighbors, you name it. If we all do our part, we will have a more inclusive, equitable, fulfilling, connected, and sustainable experience of in our city. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
