Event Details

This is the second event in a series. Whether or not you attended the first event on March 5th you are more than welcome to attend and contribute!

Hennepin County Department of Community Corrections & Rehabilitation (DOCCR) and Marnita’s Table invite you to join us on Tuesday, April 30th from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. for a community conversation and engaged planning session to develop an inclusive and sustainable advisory board for all of us!

During our time together, we will explore individual and shared definitions of sustainable community engagement as we collectively strategize the creation of this community advisory board – all over a delicious feast!

Who’s invited? Anyone who lives in Hennepin County – including youth and elders of all ages. We want you! Make sure that we are truly inclusive in developing a board that accurately reflects our diverse community.

Join us at “WeAdvise! Building a Sustainable, Inclusive Community Advisory Board for Hennepin County Community Corrections!”

During our kick-off event, many attendees said that they would be interested in helping us to invite participants to the next event! We are still recruiting, so please reach out to anyone you believe should be a part of the community advisory board and/or planning process. We encourage you to share this invite!

What to Expect:
A night of great engagement where we listen to your voices as you share with us who you think should be on a community advisory board for corrections and what shape the board should take. Expect to be enlivened and engaged as we develop shared definitions of sustainable community engagement and explore community-sourced priorities and feedback on shaping an advisory board to help guide the work, policies and practices of the Hennepin County Department of Community Corrections and Rehabilitation.

Together we will capitalize on existing energy, make new connections and build momentum as we share an abundant feast. If you are receiving this invitation you have been identified as someone who will add and receive extraordinary value through your participation in this critical conversation. We are specifically seeking a vibrant cross-cultural mix of participants from every sector. If you know someone who will add and/or receive extraordinary value through their participation feel free to reach out to someone across race, class, culture, professional affiliation or age and invite them to join you!

A complete feast is served with abundance to allay any dietary concern from vegan to halal to carnivore using the Intentional Social Interaction (“IZI”) model (marnitastable.org) of a resource-abundant environment. You are the guest of the Hennepin County DOCCR and there is no charge to participate. Please dress comfortably. Children, elders and other community members of all ages welcome!
