Saturday, Sept. 22, 2-5 pm, Mississippi Mushrooms, 3800 1st St. N, Minneapolis. The City of Minneapolis and Minneapolis Park Board are redeveloping a 48-acre stretch of land on the North bank of the Mississippi, the largest remaining single-owner development opportunity along the River in Minneapolis. This land, and the community surrounding it, have been plagued by polluting industries that have separated the people of North Minneapolis from the Mississippi River for decades. It is time for a unified vision for the Upper Harbor, a vision rooted in community and equity, that doesn’t gentrify, that creates jobs for North Minneapolis residents, that provides green space and green business opportunities for the Northside.
Hear from environmental justice advocates about their vision for the Upper Harbor, and share your ideas for creating a just and sustainable development plan. There will be food, drink, music, and community. Performers: Joe Davis & Friends, poet, activist, and spoken word artist and Tufawon, indigenous hip hop artist and water protector.
Tabling opportunities available. Contact email@example.com. Event sponsored by Project Sweetie Pie, Sierra Club, Climate Generation, Mississippi Mushrooms, Oz Technology Company GBC, Debbie Goettel, Clarence Bischoff, ØHunger, FarmMotion, Environmental Justice Coordinating Council, and Minneapolis Climate Action.
