One of the ideals of cohousing is welcoming diversity. The questions we
haven’t answered are: What is it?

How about racial diversity for starters? Yes race is socially constructed
but it's still meaningful. How about a cohousing community with
approximately the same racial makeup as the US or as the state in which
it's located?

How do we get it, and keep it?

Hard work. Hard conversations. Sacrifice. Racial sensitivity and allyship
training. Reducing financial barriers to entry. Lots of other great ideas
that we need to come up with.

How do we know when we’ve got it?

A basic spreadsheet should do it :)
