Who are we?Â 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 Â 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,Â 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.
