Economic recovery suggests that the economy we had before COVID-19 is one we want to return to. We reject that idea. We demand a reimagining of our economy to create one that truly works for everyone, and that requires reckoning with the racismthat has divided our communities for centuries and fueled the extraction of wealth, hope, and life for far too long.
It is time to reckon with racism, and it’s time to reckon with the truth and rise together.

Please join us on January 15 from noon to 1:00 p.m. for an exclusive virtual screening of our new documentary short film, Reckoning to Rise Together.

The film explores the risks, trials, and triumphs of Jim Mills (J-Klips), Kiara Ellis (The Nail Bar), and Tim Wilson (Urban Lights Music), three Black business owners navigating the pandemic, uprisings, wealth extraction, and racial healing in Minneapolis and St. Paul.  

Following the screening, we will host a moderated discussion with these leaders about the solutions for reimagining our economy and reckoning to rise together.

The event is free, and registration is required: http://bit.ly/3hu3x6Z

Order Local, Order BIPOC / BIPOC-Owned Restaurants
As you Zoom into our noon-time event, we encourage you to enjoy lunch (delivery or curbside pick-up) from one of these fine local, BIPOC-owned eateries! Click here: http://bit.ly/bipoc-eateries

Let's say a special prayer for all of the students.

I miss school for the kids who need it. I miss school for the kids who WANT to get out of their homes.

I miss school for the kids who are being abused EVERY day! I miss school for the children who aren't eating breakfast and lunch!

I miss school for the kids who aren't learning at home. I miss school for the kids who aren't being pushed.

I miss school for all the kids who were already behind before the pandemic.

I miss school for those who HATE math already. I miss school for those who HATE science already.

Yall....I know I'm in the minority, but I really miss school.
