Smithfield’s Walk for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

“We are aiming to keep attention on the matter of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in a fun way today,” said organizer and Smithfield resident Kim Ziegelmayer. “And encourage people to speak up about social justice issues that they might be concerned about, talk about their vision for Smithfield around the issues of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, or what it means to them in a positive way. This is always about positivity.”

The Smithfield Anti-Hate Coalition (SAHC) held a Walk for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion on Indigenous People’s Day. Starting at the basketball courts in Deerfield Park, they walked to Smithfield High School holding signs and dancing to the music of the Extraordinary Rendition Band (ERB).

“We are aiming to keep attention on the matter of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in a fun way today,” said organizer and Smithfield resident Kim Ziegelmayer. “And encourage people to speak up about social justice issues that they might be concerned about, talk about their vision for Smithfield around the issues of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, or what it means to them in a positive way. This is always about positivity.”

At the Smithfield High School bleachers participants were encouraged to speak, in a positive way, about what Diversity, Equity and Inclusion means to them.
