And with a radical, resurgent conservative movement on the rise, it’s the kind of politics we need now more than ever.

We believe that electoral politics, public policy, and grassroots organizing can be woven together to create progressive change. We call it the Wellstone Triangle, and it anchors everything we do.

We believe that to set this triangle in motion, and sustain change over the long haul, we need to develop a critical mass of diverse leaders with the motivation and expertise to win back our values. So that’s what we do.

Multicultural Religion, Spiritual Development http://www.stairstep.org The Stairstep Foundation was formed in 1992 as a God-inspired response to a set of awesome challenges that confronted society at large, and African Americans in particular. Our thinking was that the pain indicators leading to societal distress, (teen pregnancy, youth crime, drug abuse, etc.) were not new, but had become more intense and widespread than other historical time periods because the critical connections of people one to another were replaced by isolation and alienation. Community had broken down.
 We concluded that restoration of a spirit of community requires intentional approaches to encourage people to act as if they believe they belong together.

Karmel Square is a microcosm of Somalia's rich cultural traditions- Somali snacks can be purchased, as well as prayer rugs- but most importantly, the mall has become a meeting place for the transplanted Somali community. Basim Sabri, owns the building that houses Suuqa Karmel, began the mall to incubate small Somali retail business as a way to bring success to a community where over 80% of the population is found in the poorest areas of Minneapolis.

Basim Sabri, owns the building that houses Suuqa Karmel, began the mall to incubate small Somali retail business as a way to bring success to a community where over 80% of the population is found in the poorest areas of Minneapolis.

The formation of the Council was critical for Black Minnesotans because, historically, this population has been, and continues to be, underrepresented in the legislature and has had little access to the office of the governor or other policy makers. The Council is a policy-oriented agency that uses a community mobilization and involvement model. Prior to the creation of the Council, there was no state or local agency with the responsibility for
advising and educating policy makers, researching and analyzing the broad spectrum of issues affecting Black Minnesotans, and advocating on their behalf. And, there was also no agency or organization with the responsibility to educate and reeducate Black Minnesotans regarding specific policy issues and the value of political and policy participation. The Council’s advice to policy makers must be well founded, accurate and representative of the will of its constituencies.

African American Social Services www.culturebrokers.com CultureBrokers Foundation, Inc. (CBF) is a tax-exempt charitable organization whose mission is to build intercultural literacy. Knowledge of the history, contributions, and perspectives of different cultural groups is increasingly valued as the U.S. economy “goes global.” CBF believes that the best way to gain this knowledge is through authentic, respectful interaction and community-led learning experiences, and that such efforts are more likely to be embraced and sustained if they are tied directly to economic outcomes. CBF is currently leading a St. Paul-based community development project called the African American Heritage Corridor. This plan proposes ethnic-heritage based on “culturally-centered” community economic development as an effective way to build intercultural literacy for adults and youth, thereby strengthening and sustaining positive aspects of the communities in which they are engaged. The organization approaches this idea from a tourism-generating perspective, believing that such considerations leverage existing assets and strengths, offer a higher return on investment for all stakeholders, and have the potential to reach the most people.
