Bridging Social Capital: Responsive Listening Project.

Anthony, Summer.

Together with the Lao Assistance Center of Minnesota (LACM), Southeast Asian Community Council (SEACC), and the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond, the Harrison Neighborhood Association (HNA) is acting as the lead organization in a four organization partnership working in North Minneapolis. The multi-cultural partnership with an Undoing Racism framework has led to HNA's organizational focus on racial and economic justice. This project, the Responsive Listening Project, is one portion of a multi-year effort to 'bridge social capital' between diverse racial and cultural groups to affect change in Harrison and North Minneapolis. The long-term goal is to build a peaceful, prosperous, diverse and equitable community. HNA believes we can accomplish the following: (1) Build a critical mass of diverse leaders that have a common worldview, (2) Build a solid network of relationships between culturally diverse community members, (3) Build consensus around community identified issues of common cause that are relevant to lives of our members, (4) Build political power of the community to effectively represent/advocate for themselves and hold decision-makers accountable. This report identifies opinions and perceptions gathered during discussions among identified cultural groups.
