Be a part of erasing racial covenants and writing a new future for your block, your neighborhood, and our city of Minneapolis, one deed at a time. Join a training session to learn about the work happening here in Greater Longfellow and how you can be involved!
Find out the history of your deed and then volunteer – engage your people, share our survey, table or door knock.
You can attend in-person or on Zoom. All sessions run from 6 to 7:30pm.

We are inheritors of a history that wrote racism into the documents that were used to sell houses, one deed at a time.
Learn the stories of families impacted by redlining and think about the ways your actions can make change, one deed at a time.
