We partner with organizations serving immigrants, refugees, and communities of color on projects that support and promote transportation, recreation, connections between people and the land, and a say in future development in the Midtown Greenway. The Midtown Greenway is for EVERYONE, and we've been working with diverse groups and organizations to make sure that all families know they can enjoy the Greenway too.
This summer we are starting a new partnership with the Minnesota Immigrant Freedom Network, to coordinate a series of Family Days on the Greenway. Organized for Hispanic, Somali, Native American and all families in neighborhoods near the Greenway, these events will be a celebration of diverse cultures, with a focus on how individuals and families can use the Greenway for health, exercise, relaxation, and more! Allina Health will be providing free health screenings. The first one is schedule for July 29th.
We also partner with neighborhood organizations such as Pillsbury United Communities' Waite House and Spokes Bike Walk Connect to organize bike rides for kids who don't have access to bikes or want to learn how to ride safely.
Our volunteers and staff attend many neighborhood events and are always looking for ways to educate the community about the Midtown Greenway! If you would like us to attend a neghborhood event, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
