The Otto Bremer Foundation, majority owner of Bremer Bank, recently awarded $45,000 to the Inclusion Network and Alexandria Technical and Community College. The funds will be used to develop a curriculum and conduct community conversations, events and training on bullying in Alexandria. The grant will span two years. The Inclusion Network is a group of dedicated people with a common goal: to make Central Minnesota an inclusive and welcoming place for people of all backgrounds to live and work. Its goal is to strengthen the region through an appreciation and understanding of diversity and cultural differences. This project will allow the Inclusion Network to create learning opportunities, dialogues and experiences that support actions toward equality and justice to strengthen the community.
