The selection process is based on family situation, income,  medical requirements if any, and overall need. If you know of a neighbor you think might qualify for this program, please send an email to info@AEIexpertise.com with a description of the situation and the reason why you think that this neighbor or family should be selected for our program. We will work in conjunction with local organizations, nonprofits and communities of faith to spread the word.

This January, we are joining hundreds of book clubs and classrooms throughout Saint Paul in discussing Meg Medina’s Burn Baby Burn, the 2019 Read Brave Saint Paul book. Set in 1977 Queens, New York, Burn Baby Burn is a compelling, coming-of-age story about Nora Lopez, a Cuban American teenager, finding her place in a city where residents experience violence, racial tension, and housing insecurity. Nora faces turmoil on the streets of Queens but also increasingly at home, as she and her mother struggle to pay rent and keep her brother Hector’s simmering—and sometimes physical—anger in check. Luckily, Nora has teachers that believe in her, a best friend she loves like family, and a cute guy who just started at the deli where she works part-time. Even as her world falls apart and burns away, Nora learns to overcome shame and fear and move forward. Read Brave Saint Paul is a citywide, intergenerational reading program set around a common theme relevant to the city. The 2019 Read Brave theme is housing, a critical topic in Saint Paul where thousands of people struggle to afford housing. Visit https://sppl.org/about-read-brave-saint-paul/ to learn more. Our normal Mpls date and time, but note it comes BEFORE the St Paul event in Jan

Happy New Year!! Get over that midweek hump w/FREE ZUMBA AT POWDERHORN PARK!!! CLASE GRATIS EN POWDERHORN!Dogs in Space @ Trylon Cinema, 2820 E 33rd S • 7pm
Screening on 35mm courtesy of American Film Genre Archive. Tickets: $12 in advance Co-Presented by: Transmission Film Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DpPWge2madA Freaks – chainsaw-wielding synth players, students, activists, and runaways wander in and out of frame as the camera roams the scene as a detached eye, capturing the drugged-out excess of transient, 20-something misfits living in a permanent state of ruin within a communal squat. In Dogs in Space, writer/director Richard Lowenstein takes a decidedly scuzzy, nostalgia trip through the Australian “Little Bands” scene, where platinum dye-job groupies and henna-red haired frontman writhe on grime-coated carpets encrusted in tragic, punk-poet romance. The main storyline is that of a strange musician’s relationship with a girl, their drug use and his band. Dogs in Space tracks its scenesters as they pile into a Volkswagen in search of fallen pieces of Skylab, wait in line for Bowie tickets, and drop wry conversations in smoke-filled rooms, cut by the ear-splitting chaos of: Brian Eno, Iggy Pop, Gang of Four, and Thrush & the C*nts. Cutting a lithe figure in his intriguing film debut, Michael Hutchence of INXS — mutters, putters, and mumbles as the frontman of the titular house band. Dir. Richard Lowenstein, Australia, 1986, 103 min
