12th Annual Community Empowerment Through Black Men Healing Conference

We want to invite you to the upcoming 12th Annual Community Empowerment Through Black Men Healing Conference. The theme of the conference is the “Intersections of Community Health”. The objective will be to take a deeper look at issues like racial trauma, domestic violence, healthcare, policing, and their relationship to community health. The conference will also explore strategies that will lead to community empowerment and healing. We realize that a stronger, thriving African American community improves the health of the community and the society as a whole.

30 Days of Prayer: Healing the Heart of Our City.

30 Days of Prayer: Healing the Heart of Our City is a month-long, African American-led collaborative where people of all faiths and good will can come together throughout the day for 8 minutes and 46 seconds of silent prayer/meditation to add a vital spiritual factor to all the strategic thinking, policy proposals and investments being considered.

Hawthorne Counts!

Less than 50% of Hawthorne Residents have filled out the Census. We can do better!

The Census impacts how billions of dollars are distributed across Minnesota. It determines funding for public health, schools, housing, transit, and infrastructure (roads/bridges, water/sewer, gas/electric). An accurate count means better serving people where they live. Specifically, every person we don’t count is $28,000 our communities won’t receive over the next ten years.
