This summer, the For Our Kids (FOK) network will be 4 years old, and as we move past toddlerhood we're looking for input from our members to move us to our next, critical phase of development.
We've crafted our first ever member survey and we'd love to hear from you! Could you spare 5-10 minutes, before February 3?
The survey is for members in the For Our Kids network - parents, guardians, grandparents and allies who have signed up here as individual members and/or are connected to a team in the network.
The survey is confidential, unless you want to share your name with us for follow-up. It’s hosted on our behalf by our partners Bloom Consulting, a team of equity-focused facilitators who are helping us learn from your critical input. Responses will be reviewed by FOK’s Justice-Equity-Diversity-Inclusion (JEDI) accelerator committee to lead them in the next steps of increasing FOK’s capacity and knowledge about the interconnection of climate change with social and racial justice.
We will also share general, aggregate survey results back to network members.
What’s the survey for?
Parent-led local teams set the course for the FOK network. In 2022 conversations among those teams about social justice were formalized into a JEDI accelerator committee - read more about that process here.
We’ve set ambitious goals and to move forward we need to learn more about the network’s membership: who you are, your many dimensions of diversity, and how you understand the connection between racial equity and climate action.
Critically, this will provide a baseline for us to understand the diversity that exists within the For Our Kids network and the impact of our actions. And personally, we hope that these questions spark reflection and curiosity about the interconnection of racial and climate justice, and our place in it.
This is the first time we’ve undertaken something like this in For Our Kids, and we're stepping out humbly to understand and support, not to judge or challenge. Most of all, we hope you feel welcomed and safe in participating. We’re asking these questions in the gentlest possible way, and will treat your responses the same way.
If you have questions or feedback about the survey, we encourage you to email us at [email protected]
Thank you for your crucial participation - looking forward to hearing from you.
