Community Connections Committee is one of the standing committees of the Longfellow Community Council. Members and representatives of interested organizations participated in the monthly meeting on March 13.
Matters discussed were recent crime trends in Longfellow; two spending proposals to support a summertime colloquium on hip-hop art for city youth; a proposal by a Latino organization to have council volunteers cook with Hispanic residents of Minneapolis through an organization called La Connexion; and a proposal to form a womens group for Latinas. The committee voted to approve the two spending proposals in a form satisfactory to the committee and consistent with the goals of the Council.
There was also discussion of preparations for the upcoming general membership meeting which is happening on April 25.
