2019 MC3 Summit- Request for Workshops
For the last three years, Youth Services Bureau of Monroe County and Building a Thriving Compassionate Community (BTCC) have engaged approximately 200 community members annually for the Monroe County Childhood Conditions Summit (MC3). Our original theme of "what surrounds us shapes us," was grounded in the understanding that children are shaped by the relationships they have, the neighborhoods they live in, the places they learn and play, and the community organizations that serve them.

The 2019 MC3 Summit will explore conditions by focusing on equity and inclusion. Every child is our child, therefore, we share a collective interest in our children's future. For more information on prior MC3 Summits, please visit: www.btccbloomington.org/mc3-summit/.

As we offer the fourth annual MC3 Summit, we aim to bring together the community to explore the challenges facing our local youth and families. We believe that many of these challenges are actually the manifestations of inequity, and as we continue to build thriving compassionate communities, we know we must zoom out from our focus on individual youth and families to the conditions that frame our lives.

We believe equity and inclusion in Monroe County means:

- Every child and family is a fully recognized and included member of our community.
- Every child and family experiences community conditions that meet them where they are and help them thrive; from the meeting of basic needs like healthy food, safe and affordable housing, clean water, to safe places to learn and play.

We recognize that equity and inclusion are multi-dimensional, so we acknowledge the variety of personal, social, economic and environmental determinants that shape the trajectories for individual and population equity. Questions we are asking as we approach the event are:

-What influences equitable conditions in Monroe County?
-Who defines equitable conditions in our communities?
-What are the organizational, community and public policies that seek to actively address inequities?
-What kinds of resources and infrastructures promote or impede equity and inclusion in Monroe County?
-What does an equitable community look, sound, and feel like?
