AGENDA

Friends of the Hawthorne Huddle,

On February 1, 2018 the Hawthorne Huddle will be discussing the 100 Day Challenge. Hennepin County was one of five communities nationwide chosen to participate in a 100 Day Challenge to combat youth homelessness. Hennepin County’s goal was in 100 days, 150 youth, aged 16-24, would exit homelessness into safe and stable housing, of which 75 percent would be employed.

Hennepin County saw amazing results through this initiative in a very short timeframe. When we collaborate and work across sectors, our results are incredibly impactful.  This presentation will cover 100 Day methodology, lessons learned and opportunities for sustainability.

The Hawthorne Huddle will be held from 7:30 to 8:45 a.m. in the Multipurpose Room at Farview Park, 621 29th Avenue North. A continental breakfast will be available at 7:15 a.m.

WELCOME: Ann DeGroot, Minneapolis Youth Coordinating Board; Diana Hawkins, Hawthorne Neighborhood Council

Discussion on Hope at the Hawthorne Huddle

Tom Weber, MPR News, right, and Lissa Jones, left, KMOJ, host a discussion on hope Jan 4, 2018, at the Hawthorne Huddle in north Minneapolis with Terrall Lewis of the Minneapolis Youth Coordinating Board and April Graves of the Minneapolis Health Department. Kenzie O’Keefe | North News

On a bitterly cold morning, 50 or so people gathered at Farview Park Recreation Center in north Minneapolis for a conversation about hope. MPR News host Tom Weber and KMOJ host Lissa Jones moderated the conversation, convened in cooperation with the Hawthorne Neighborhood Association. The starting point was MPR News’ recent Ground Level survey in which African-American Minnesotans expressed hope for the future at a level 10 percent higher than whites. Weber presented the findings of the Ground Level survey, and said that while white people he spoke with found the results startling, black people didn’t seem surprised. Panelist April Graves, youth violence prevention specialist at the Minneapolis Health Department, said that’s because in her community, hope isn’t a choice: “What’s the alternative?” she asked.

AGENDA

Friends of the Hawthorne Huddle,

On January 4, 2018 the Hawthorne Huddle would to cordially invite you to a special community conversation on hope in North Minneapolis. A state-wide survey conducted by MPR News to gauge how hopeful Minnesotans are about the future found that the most optimistic demographic in the state are African Americans. In a state noted for its socioeconomic disparities, we want to start conversations to find out what this hope is made of.

Do you agree that African Americans represent abundant hope?  How does hope show itself in your neighborhood, at work, and among your friends and family? What can the majority culture learn from the resilience of North Minneapolis on hope in the midst of hardship?

The Hawthorne Huddle will be held from 7:30 to 8:45 a.m. in the Multipurpose Room at Fairview Park, 621 29th Avenue North. A continental breakfast will be available at 7:15 a.m.
