August 28th Meet and Greet Recap

Yesterday, I returned to Ward 5 for a meet and greet. Our hosts had a beautiful home in the Homewood neighborhood. The guest list included leaders like Ebony Walker of the Minneapolis Urban League, former city council member Jackie Cherryhomes and Councilman Blong Yang. The conversation, by turns intense and emotional, drilled down to the core of some very serious issues, like gentrification, displacement of minorities, employment, and immigration. It was a productive night! Highlights are below.
