Inclusive Dubuque Report Tracks Progress in Equity

Inclusive Dubuque recently released Advancing Equity: Community Efforts and Outcomes, an annual report highlighting equity initiatives implemented in Dubuque by government, nonprofit, educational, private-sector and  faith-based organizations. Here are some highlights:  

  • The Dubuque Marshall Islands Health Project began enrollment in its Community Health Program. In the last three months of 2016, this collaboration among Mercy Medical Center, University of Dubuque, Crescent Community Health Center and other organizations removed regulatory and financial barriers and restored health care services for 25 Marshallese people at Crescent Community Health Center.
  • The Dubuque Museum of Art revised its mission, vision and values statements using a diversity and equity lens.
  • The University of Dubuque Student Life Department held ally training focused on creating awareness and insight into the lives and experiences of LGBTQ people.
  • Washington Middle School formed the Moxie Squad, a group of students who receive training on how to navigate and understand cultural differences to foster a positive learning environment.
