Watch the KFNA Board Meeting for an overview by Minneapolis City Clerk Casey Carl of how the City Charter is structured and a description of the three charter amendments on the ballot this year. Followed by Q&A, then entire presentation takes about 1 hour and can be found on KFNA’s YouTube channel.
If you are still confused about the amendments and want to learn more, visit here, and register to attend (in person or virtually!) the Saturday October 16th Charter Amendment Community Forum, organized by a coalition of SW neighborhood associations acting as a unified Election Education Team. At this forum, advocacy groups will be speaking to each side of each proposed amendment. This forum will be moderated by the League of Women Voters. Questions taken in advance ONLY, and can also be submitted online at this site.

KFNA held their Annual Meeting & Board Election last week and we need neighbors to VOTE! Voting happens online through Wednesday June 16 here: https://bit.ly/3ins941
Voting is for up to 7 neighbors to serve on the Board of Directors and for restated Bylaws, and an NRP Plan modification to move funds to affordable housing and KFNA administration. All these votes (and information about them!) are at the link above.
If you want to view the full meeting (and here candidates speak!) you can watch it on YouTube. Candidates begin at about 45 minutes.
Who are we? We are the Kingfield and Lyndale Neighborhood Associations, two independent nonprofits cohoused in the South Nicollet Action Center at 3537 Nicollet Avenue South. As place-based nonprofits that cover from Lake Street to 46th South and from Lyndale Avenue to 35W, we are focused on the neighbors and the opportunities in this area including housing and development, food security, racial justice and safety, election engagement, education, as well as community building and engagement. We share our office space, and occasionally our work, with dynamic issue-based organizing groups; currently this includes Minneapolis Climate Action and the Somali American Women Action Center. Together we seek to create a community center for all neighbors, by focusing on 1) connecting neighbors to each other and to resources, 2) community identification of issues and solutions, and 3) leadership skill development.
Our organizations are committed to being equitable and inclusive and reflect the diversity and many identities in our neighborhood. We seek to foster the leadership and participation of people who neighborhood organizations have historically underinvested in. This includes people who rent, and people who identify as BIPOC (black, indigenous, people of color), LGBTQ+, youth, and seniors.
