Building Bridges and Breaking Bread

August 16 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Our communities celebrate the reopening of the 38th Street Bridge with the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) on Thursday, August 16, from 4-8pm. Join us for a sit-down dinner on the bridge (served at 5:45 PM), kid friendly activities, live music and more! This is an opportunity for neighbors to meet and have a conversation around our unique stories and shared future – where all members of the community are empowered!

The conversation, facilitated by Marnita’s Table, will furnish space for open dialogue and healing. A collective dinner will be catered by Eat for Equity Minneapolis and will include halal, vegan and gluten free options.

Gather with family, friends and neighbors and help us celebrate the reopening of this cornerstone bridge that connects our vibrant cultures, neighborhoods and community.

Please RSVP here if you plan on attending. If you have questions call 612-823-5980.
