Actualizing Equity: Building Wealth, Building Power
For a prosperous and sustainable Twin Cities, decision makers must prioritize investment in under-resourced geographies and low-wealth communities. Join us to discuss how we can lift up equitable economic development practices that build on existing assets and allow people of color, indigenous people, immigrants, and low-income communities to build and sustain wealth in their neighborhoods creating healthy, thriving communities.
Monday, September 10, noon – 1:30 (possibly noon – 2:00)
611 E Franklin Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55404

The 2018 Actualizing Equity Series will dive into each section covered by Our AREA: the Alliance’s Regional Equity Agenda, a living document that outlines visions and strategies for the development of a just, equitable Twin Cities region. Local leaders will join us in exploring and discussing the ways the following issue areas intersect with the rich identities and historical struggles of our communities.
PLEASE NOTE that this is a Brown Bag Lunch Series. We will provide snacks, but you’re welcome to bring yourself a full meal.
