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:
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.
Volunteer for Lowry, Lyndale, and other County Owned Streets
By volunteering, you can help get the attention of Hennepin County Commissioners, the Public Works department, and other county decision makers who have the authority to make positive changes on these streets. You can help make this project happen on a timeline that works for the people.
Join the Streets for People Work Group
This volunteer work group is a combination of the Downtown Bikeways and Pedestrian Work Groups. This change enables volunteers to discuss street space holistically and more efficiently advocate for streets that deliver safety, justice, and equity regardless of a person’s identity and lived experience.
Join the Lowry Ave NE Streets for People Work Group
This volunteer work group is creating a vision for a transformed Lowry Ave NE that puts people first, not just cars and we're organizing to make this vision a reality. This online work group will meet via Zoom several times in January, February, March and April. We estimate the total time commitment to this workgroup to be five hours a month.
