What is Minneapolis proposing?
The city of Minneapolis is focused on bridging racial disparities through more effective public engagement.
Minneapolis is looking to raise the bar across their administration for community engagement. The goal is for all of the city's engagement efforts to meet people where they are, report back and use what they hear. Support from the City Accelerator would help Minneapolis develop and implement a plan to raise the bar for public engagement across city departments, and to make sure engagement helps to bridge rather than worsen racial disparities in the city.
