Intersectional community wellness
Minneapolis has, once again, become a battleground, as our communities raise their voices against racism and its influence on our day-to-day lives, across sectors of our lives. Our world is changing rapidly, and we are forced to adapt and rise to the challenges ahead. Complex problems require intersectional approaches and swift action from every one of us.
A strong focus on equity and a commitment to infusing everything the city council does with anti-racist approaches is the only way we can restore peace, deliver justice, and prevent further tragedies. The result? Removing barriers and providing tools to assist you in navigating our city more safely, and helping you meet your personal and professional development goals, with a focus on equity, justice and sustainability.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the way we see and relate to the world around us. Long-term effects are felt across sectors, from the education of our children, to our small businesses and our healthcare systems. We must prioritize people-centered approaches to get back on our feet.

Taking care of our neighbors means: providing housing that keeps up with us, not the other way around; providing accessible, local and culturally specific mental and chemical health services; centering climate justice as we build a sustainable ward and city; and addressing disparities that leave so many of our neighbors behind.
