Northside Assembly: Ward 5
June 26, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:45 pm
Community and stakeholders,
I’m reaching out to ask for your help in making sure our first community meeting is earnestly for the community. Six months ago I took office as the Minneapolis Ward 5 City Council Member and I’ve been fighting for the Northside since day one. I’ve been learning City Hall these early days in office, and finding ways to make our visions real, but any insights gathered must be paired with community voice and vision.
On Tuesday, June 26th, 5-7:45pm at UROC (Urban Research and Outreach-Engagement Center) (2001 Plymouth Ave N), I’ll be looking to gather with ward 5 residents and stakeholders for our first Northside Assembly: Ward 5.
The Assembly is my version of a town hall. It leans on the collective wisdom of the room (the community) to help craft specific policies and programs I can then pursue back at City Hall. It will put the power of governance directly in the hands of the community I love and represent. And while the 26th will be our first, these meetings will be regular—quarterly. This won’t be some one-and-done meeting.
With your help, I’m looking to get as many Northsiders in the room as possible. Each one of you has deep roots and/or connections to the Northside, and I’m hoping you’ll be willing to share the details of the Assembly with your networks, especially your Northside networks. You can either share our Facebook event (here), or distribute our flyer (attached), or invite people in your own words.
At minimum, people should know:
5:00 PM – Come eat!
5:30 PM – We’ll get started!
7:45 PM – We’ll get you home!
Food and childcare will be provided.
If people (or you) have questions or accessibility needs, call 612-673-2205 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Thank you so much for helping us spread the word. I look forward to seeing you and your folks on the 26th.
