Activating youth through Education, Economics, and Entertainment
Win Back The Community began with a few dedicated Minnesotans who had the shared vision of investing in North Minneapolis youth so that they could invest in themselves. Our founder, Leslie Redmond's, work with youth and community organizations in North Minneapolis helped her to realize there was a lack of hope, opportunity, and role models. She also recognized there were a lot of people and organizations who cared about these youth. However, there was a culture of working in isolation, rather than collaboration. This realization birthed the 1st Annual Win Back The Community: Summer Festival and Cultural Celebration. The event displayed the power of collaboration and human capital.
Our upcoming event is our 2nd annual Win Back The Community Festival on September 2nd, 2017 which will include food, fun, and so much more!
