The mission of the Longfellow Community Council is to improve the well being of our diverse community through engagement, involvement and empowerment.
The Longfellow Community Council Board of Directors have set this bridge Strategic Plan to guide their work, with staff support, during this time of staffing and pandemic transitioning. Work to establish a 5-year Strategic Plan with yearly goals will begin development in January of 2022.
Our commitment to accessibility
LCC invites and encourages participation by all residents to each and every one of our organized programs, services and events. As our programming has moved online, please reach out if you need assistance setting up or understanding Zoom, Signup Genius or any of the Google forms we use. You can reach our Director, Rachel Boeke, by calling (612) 722-4529 or emailing . Until we are able to gather in-person once again, be well and stay safe.
LCC recognizes that name and gender identity are central to most individuals’ sense of self and well-being, and that it is important for LCC to establish mechanisms to acknowledge and support individuals’ self-identification. One way we can support identity is by honoring the name and pronouns that each of us go by. Many people might go by a name in daily life that is different from their legal name. In our gatherings, we seek to refer to people by the names that they go by. Pronouns can be a way to affirm someone’s gender identity, but they can also be unrelated to a person’s identity. They are simply a public way in which people are referred to in place of their name (e.g. “he” or “she” or “they” or “ze” or something else). At all LCC Board and committee meetings, you are invited (if you want to) to share what pronouns you go by, and we seek to refer to people using the pronouns that they share. The pronouns someone indicates are not necessarily indicative of their gender identity.
Land acknowledgement statement
Minneapolis is situated on the homelands of the Dakota people. An area that is steeped in rich Indigenous history, and today is home to Indigenous people from more than 30 different nations. As a City, we have a responsibility to care for the land on which we live and work and all its natural surroundings. This stewardship is an integral part of our involvement in LCC, and we honor it.
Bylaws are the go-to source for how an organization operates. LCC is in the process of updating our bylaws and will seek community input during Spring of 2022.
