IDEA Forum Survey Seeks Public Input About Diversity in New Braunfels

The New Braunfels Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Awareness (IDEA) Forum has launched a survey asking local residents to weigh in on diversity and inclusion in the New Braunfels community.

The purpose of the IDEA Forum is to examine racial, economic, and social inequities as well as citizen access issues within the New Braunfels community, in the hopes of promoting citizen dialogue, cooperation, and developing solutions for a lasting understanding of all groups within the community.

The anonymous survey, which only takes a few minutes to complete, is now available at www.nbideaforum.com and the data will be used by multiple local agencies to identify areas of need in the New Braunfels community. The survey asks for opinions on issues like access to affordable healthcare and housing, awareness of opportunities to be involved in city government, and whether there are racial disparities in the New Braunfels community. The survey also asks respondents to identify what they see as the most important diversity issue facing the community and to describe what New Braunfels does well and what it needs to improve on when it comes to fostering positive relationships between diverse groups.

“We are reaching out to the entire New Braunfels community on these topics in the hopes of hearing from as many residents as possible,” said New Braunfels Mayor Rusty Brockman. “We hope that everyone shares this survey with their friends and neighbors. It is essential that we get feedback from the entire community on these topics as we continue to find ways to bring our residents together, no matter their differences.”

The deadline for survey submissions is July 30th, 2021. Again, the survey, as well as additional information about the IDEA Forum, is available at www.nbideaforum.com.
