Elections are coming on November 6th and many candidates are already reaching out to the community share their viewpoints and listen to neighbors. Although KFNA does not endorse candidates we want to make neighbors aware of the opportunities in our neighborhood to meet any and all candidates running for Governor, State Representative, Hennepin County Commissioner, Minneapolis School Board, and any of the other seats that Kingfielder’s will cast votes for in 2018. If you have any questions related to these events please directly contact the organizers. Candidates, if you host a community event (fundraisers not included) in Kingfield Neighborhood please feel free to contact KFNA at email@example.com to have us help share your event!

Who is this for?
The training is open to people of color who want to join their neighborhood board and create local change so they are prepared to run at their neighborhood association or district council annual meeting elections, or want to inquire about board vacancies in their community. (Note: KFNA’s Board election is coming up on March 7th, 2018 at The Aliveness Project!)
If you are a Person of Color or know a Person of Color interested in joining their neighborhood association, CURA’s Neighborhood Organizing and Leadership Program is looking for participants for a free training to empower and assist them in their journey toward leadership. We are looking for People of Color that want to create change and fight injustice in their community through neighborhood board membership.
