MidWest Mixed is a new, and quickly expanding, organization that seeks to center, unpack, and celebrate mixed race, multicultural and transracial adoptee experiences and identities through events, programming, the arts, and community building. We are a group of artists and community organizers all dedicated to making space for courageous conversations about race and identity. In a region that has a growing number of people who identify as mixed race, we feel the urgency of shining light on the diverse experiences of mixed people and families. We desire to put forward stories that unite us and deepen our understanding of racial issues in Minnesota. The goal of MidWest Mixed is not to divide, but to provide safer spaces to move deeply into our authentic selves.
