MUL Community Connections:  Keeping People Informed and Engaged.
Postings of flyers and announcements about events, activities and resources available to the community.

The decision by Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman to press charges against Officer Mohamed Noor, for the 2017 shooting which resulted in the unfortunate death of Justine Damond, has caused an array of conflicting emotions throughout our city.

ReCAST Minneapolis and leadership in City Hall understand that these events can trigger historical racial trauma, and want to invite Minneapolis residents to a  Listening Session in an effort to promote healing and resiliency in our communities.

Thursday, March 29 | 6:00 pm 
MUL Glover Sudduth Center
2100 Plymouth Avenue North

This event will be facilitated by Alika Galloway from
 Kwanzaa Church.

Dear Neighbors and Friends,
Mark your calendars to come celebrate with us at Sumner Library on Saturday, April 7, 1:00-4:00pm.
Since the 1950's, Sumner Library has proudly built a collection of books and other materials focused on African American history and culture.
Twenty years ago, this collection (over 5000 items for all ages) was renamed in honor of Gary Sudduth - Northside activist, former Urban League President, and Minneapolis Public Library Board member.
Widely respected as a civil rights leader and a champion of public libraries, Gary believed in the power of books and reading for all people, especially children.
Sumner Library will host a celebration to honor Gary Sudduth and the collection named in his honor. 
The Gary N. Sudduth African American History and Culture Collection
Detailed plans for the day will follow soon.

Public Policy Forum on
Unemployment Among Young Black Men
April 26th from 3pm-5pm at Minneapolis Urban League
Racial disparities in employment have significant implications for black workers, particularly black men who are more likely to work in low-wage occupations and experience long durations of unemployment than their white counterparts. The effects are acutely felt among young black men (ages 16 to 24) whose employment rates have been steadily declining since the 1970s. Persistent unemployment and underemployment is an issue black men confront throughout their entire work life.
In this public policy forum, we'll hear from field experts on this challenge, possible solutions and its contributing factors including:
* Educational attainment
* Mass incarceration
* Living in economically under-resourced areas
* Perception and racial bias

Panelists include:
  • Akil Foluke, Adjunct Professor of Chemistry at Metropolitan State University
  •  Dr. Brian Lozenski, Assistant Professor of Urban and Multicultural Education at Macalester College
  • Kelly Mitchell, Executive Director of Robina Institute of Criminal Law and Criminal Justice at the University of Minnesota
Light refreshments will be served.  Registration is required.
