Small business owners in North Minneapolis have been devastated by recent looting and the new capacity limitations implemented to prevent COVID19 transmission. These businesses provide jobs, food, medicine, and essential services to residents. Many were already struggling due to the stay-at-home order. There are other groups raising funds for any business impacted; this fund prioritizes African American small business owners because Black Businesses Matter.
The North Job Creation Team (NJCT) is a community collaborative with a track record of increasing living wage employment of North Minneapolis residents, aligned with the City's long-range plans. The NJCT (using fiscal agent North Point Health and Wellness) needs your help. Thank you for contributing whatever amount you can to bring these small, but critical, parts of the community back to business.
