The purpose of Faribault YouthBank is to improve our city for all people, especially young people. To accomplish this goal, we believe it is necessary to address racism – our primary focus. As a group we believe that educating ourselves and others is very important, we hope that the projects we support will help our community be more inclusive and end the division between our ethnic groups.   Racism has been a part of the fabric of this country from the beginning and remains a problem embedded in the system, this has given power to the privileged.  This year has been an amazing time to bring attention to unjust and unfair deaths, acts, and so on. We stand with all peoples, activists and anyone else who is fighting to end racism in all forms. We stand with the Black Lives Matter movement; we stand for equality and justice for all.
