On Thursday, August 15th, everyone is invited to attend a community conversation about the needs or concerns specific to the immigrant community as the Hennepin County’s Department of Community Corrections and Rehabilitation seeks to develop an inclusive community advisory board. The meeting is open to anyone who lives in Hennepin County, including youth and adults of all ages.
The meeting will take place on 8/15, from 6-9pm, at Wood Lake Nature Center (in the Fireplace Room), 6710 Lake Shore Drive, in Richfield. If interested, please RSVP to email@example.com.
For more information, please click here to read the attached flyer, or call 612.928.7744.
At the April KFNA Annual Meeting and Election, five community members were seated on the board. Three additional seats remain open, however. KFNA is committed to being an equitable and inclusive organization that reflects the diversity and many identities in our neighborhood. KFNA is specifically encouraging those who have been historically underrepresented in neighborhood organizations to apply. This includes Renters, POCI, LGBTQ+, Youth, or Seniors.
If you have any questions or are potentially interested in serving please contact KFNA Executive Director Sarah Linnes-Robinson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or complete and return a brief Interest Form (found below) to email@example.com; KFNA is then inviting all interested individuals to the June KFNA meeting on 6/12/19 at 7 PM, MLK Park to introduce themselves to the board.
Now that the 38th Street bridge has reopened over Interstate 35W, neighbors will gather for a sit-down dinner — on the bridge — on Thursday, Aug. 16.
The evening will feature live music, kid-friendly activities, dinner and conversation.
Volunteers at Eat for Equity have started preparing about 200 meals, with a menu loosely based on a southern heritage meal they’ve served at Bonnaroo in Tennessee. Dinner begins at 5:45 PM–there are no reservations and seating will be first come, first served.
