Joint meeting of Larimer and Weld Imagine Zero Suicide Coalitions
Foundations of Community, Social Identities, & Inequity: Going Beyond What’s Easy
This meeting agenda serves as the first of multiple structured gatherings to deliver content surrounding important concepts that affect the prevalence of suicide in different communities. These topics include (and are not limited to) social identities, equity, and resource allocation work.
By utilizing models such as the Multicultural Competency Model (Sue & Sue, 1996) and the Cycle of Socialization (Harro, 1982) to understand the concepts and lived realities of ourselves and others, members of the Imagine Zero community will gain language and knowledge of these important dynamics.
It’s easy to stay comfortable in what we think we know; it’s easy to be with people “like us” and pass judgments. It is challenging and a demonstration of leadership to go beyond. This is what we seek to do – to understand, to advocate, to be in community amidst similarities and differences.
