Update to Powerfest
Dear Community Partner,
Thank you so much for your interest in partnering with Minneapolis Community Education and the West Broadway Livability Coalition. We were very excited about the opportunity to offer family friendly activities and resources on Broadway as a strategy to disrupt the violence, break the cycle of disinvestment in North Minneapolis and bring community together. We really appreciate your interest in being part of this effort.
Unfortunately, we regret to inform you that we have made the decision to not move forward with the Northside 2nd Saturday events at 800 West Broadway. While we are well into the planning phase, there remains genuine concerns around safety. Even with police and private security presence, the risk remains too high to invite families to the West Broadway and Lyndale corridor. I assure you that the district remains committed to providing family friendly opportunities on West Broadway in a safe and responsible way. We are in the process of exploring alternative opportunities to engage with families throughout the summer. Our Freedom Schools at Cityview and Green Central, Beacons Summer 2021 Program at Franklin Middle School and Summer Youth Sports Camps will continue as planned.
We will update you as our plans are finalized for further family programming this summer.
Thank you so much for all of your support. Best wishes for a safe and healthy summer
