The Minnesota State Building and Construction Trades Council shares the outrage, sorrow, anguish and devastation related to the death of George Floyd and the injustices in our society. As Minnesota’s construction worker unions, we strive to build trust, build respect, build justice and to help rebuild our community.
To Donate to Community Rebuilding:
We Love Lake Street is collecting monetary donations to help rebuild Lake Street’s small businesses and community organizations. The effort is being organized by the nonprofit, Lake Street Council. Organizers assure that 100 percent of funds collected will help go toward small businesses and nonprofits in the Lake Street community.
The Neighbors United Funding Collaborative, a nonprofit fundraiser helping the Midway/Hamline Coalition, is helping the Midway + Union Park small business and nonprofit community rebuild the storefronts and repair the businesses in need.
Minnesota Rapid Response Coalition “Many of our local small businesses are being adversely impacted by the protests related to the murder of George Floyd. This coalition has joined together to help with the clean-up, in efforts to lower their unforeseen expenses so that they can get back to work and thrive. We will start with businesses along the Lake Street, Midway and East Saint Paul business corridors then allocate resources throughout the Twin Cities.”
