Belonging, Accessibility, Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

This group has been organized to collaborate with our community to create more COMMUNITY CENTRIC, forward-thinking, and all-encompassing approach to accessibility, justice, equity, diversity and inclusion.

Better Way Forward (BWF) wishes support the work of Being A JEDI through programs, activities, resources, and events which serve all people equitably. BWF operates as an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that adheres to our vision and mission of championing the work and ideals of Being A JEDI within the Eastern Iowa Area often working in partnership with various local organizations.

BWF operates autonomously with its own missions, vision, consensus, skills, incentives, resources and action plans for change in the Eastern Iowa Area.

Any funds collected by BWF go to support our community through providing programs, educational materials, tools, training, etc. needed within our local area of Johnson County in DEI work.


Our vision is striving to see each other, hear each other, talk to each other, and build pathways where all people can confidently travel together through Belonging, Accessibility, Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in our community. Be A JEDI.



Our mission is to provide support financially, civilly and through volunteering to our marginalized andunserved community through programs, activities, activism, resources, events and fundraisingin the Eastern Iowa Area which serves all people equitably.
