Friends of the Hawthorne Huddle, On April 1 we will honor the work and contributions of a tireless community activist and dedicated advocate. Join us to see who it is. We will feature 2 topics this month – Mary Ann Schoenberger from Minneapolis Community Education will talk about Community Education opportunities on the North Side for adults and children including summer options for youth. They have some exciting new options this year. They are really interested in getting feedback about family, adult, and 55+ programming on the North Side.
Please complete as much of the survey as possible. We will seek community input as we enhance this survey.

Even though there is a temporary hold on evictions as part of Governor Walz’s executive order, rent and other housing costs are still due. Your landlord may be able to evict you for not paying rent once restrictions are lifted. Hennepin County may be able to help you cover current and past due rent and other housing costs.
The Hawthorne Huddle convenes on Thursday September 3 via Zoom. Please join us from 7:30 – 8:45 AM. In order to ensure that we do not get Zoom bombed, we will ask participants to Register in advance for this meeting.
We are collecting NEW items needed to keep our youth warm this winter including hats, scarves, gloves, mittens, and even winter coats. All sizes and styles will be accepted. We are also collecting School Supplies.
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.
