Volunteers Power Our Streets Minneapolis!

The work of Our Streets Minneapolis is possible because of volunteers like you. Here’s how you can make an impact on the future of transportation equity in our city:

Bring Back 6th Canvas Launch
Saturday, November 20th | 10AM | Harrison Park

Our Streets Minneapolis and Harrison Neighborhood Association are partnering to focus on transforming Olson Memorial Highway in North Minneapolis to put people and the community first, and bringing back walkability, inviting green spaces, and a thriving cultural corridor that provides economic opportunity and amenities that the former Sixth Ave North provided to the community.

We are meeting Sunday, November 21st at 10am to launch our canvassing efforts to reach out to members of the community and encourage people to contact the Minnesota Department of Transportation in support of the project.

Rethinking I-94 Canvas Launch
Sunday, November 21st | 10AM | Merwyn Triangle Park

This project is a once in a lifetime opportunity to reimagine the I-94 corridor and to put the needs of people and the planet ahead of automobile traffic. We envision a corridor with reduced emissions, cleaner air, reconnected communities and abundant transportation options for people walking, rolling, biking and taking transit.

We are meeting Sunday, November 21st at 10am to launch our canvassing efforts to reach out to members of the community and encourage people to contact the Minnesota Department of Transportation in support of the project.

Open Streets Minneapolis

Join in opening the streets to thousands of people! Each year, communities across the city gather to experience a day on their street without cars. By volunteering at an Open Streets event, you can help us create a welcoming and engaging environment for visitors, organizations, and businesses across the city. With a variety of opportunities, this is a great way to learn about the work that Our Streets does and share our mission with others.
