-The Alliance is a member of the Stops For Us coalition, which advocated to add three missing stops along the Central Corridor LRT to serve transit-dependent communities along east University Avenue. After years of organizing, the Stops coalition had a major victory when all three stops were added to the line in 2010.
-The Alliance is on the steering committee for HIRE Minnesota, a campaign working to ensure that public investments in help lift people out of poverty and reduce racial disparities. In 2010, HIRE Minnesota trained 100 unemployed construction students about how to dismantle structural racism through civic engagement and media relations. We also worked with MnDOT, which has not met its goals for hiring women and people of color for 18 years, to lead a collaborative group of MnDOT staff, contractors and community members that negotiated an agreement on improvements to the agency’s hiring practices.
-The Harrison Neighborhood Association has been committed to the redevelopment of Bassett Creek Valley for more than 10 years, to bring new housing, commercial development and jobs to the neighborhood. However, those plans are being threatened by an alternate plan for a commuter rail storage and maintenance facility. In April, HNA and our coalition were able to convince the city to stop the sale of the site and instead study joint development strategies.
