Take Steps for Equity & Love
Our commitment to anti-racism is illuminated in the steps we take to educate ourselves and work for change. On Valentine’s weekend, walk the nature trail beautifully lit with ice luminaries created by our Westwood community and reflect on our place in God’s world to build equity and show love.
Masks and social distancing required; all ages are welcome! The entrance to the trail is at the berm, at the top of the West parking lot. Be ready for off-road trail walking down by the lake. Bring a hot beverage to enjoy!
Make Ice Luminaries!
Help us light the trail by creating ice luminaries. This is an easy winter project- we hope you will make a bunch! All you need is water, buckets/containers, and a few cold Minnesota nights.

Deliver your ice luminaries to Westwood anytime between Saturday Feb. 6th– Friday Feb 12th. Put them under the blue tarp near the West parking lot (we will put them on the trail). Candle donations (that stay lit for 3+ hours) are appreciated!
Support BBIA Organizations
Another way to step forward in anti-racism is by supporting Black, Brown, Indigenous, and Asian (BBIA) organizations. As you make ice luminaries or come to walk the trail, we encourage you to make a donation (any amount is appreciated!). Here are a few organizations to consider:
African American Leadership Forum: https://tcaalf.com/
