Working For Justice
In Minneapolis-St. Paul, as in many places around the world, we are continuing to grieve the murder of George Floyd, take action to dismantle racism, and heal our communities amid social unrest. Racism against Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC) has a deep history in America, and is the result of individual, collective, and systemic actions and policies. We at the Center for the Common Good ask the citizens of our community to take action to bring about meaningful social change. We don’t all have to do everything, but we all have to do something.
Community needs are ever evolving as we work toward meaningful change. Please check this page often for opportunities to get involved, as updates will be made on a rolling basis. Contact the Center for the Common Good if you have community engagement opportunities that you wish to share.
