Water & Community

North Minneapolis

The Water Main and MPR News are working with people and organizations in North Minneapolis to create conversations about water and racial equity.


We’ve been partnering with KMOJ Radio to create interviews that highlight experts and activists who explore connections between people of color and water, food, the environment, and urban planning. The interviews were conducted by Freddie Bell and Chantal Sings, the morning hosts at KMOJ Radio.

Folwell Neighborhood Association Neighborhood Ice Cream Social

Family and friends in the Folwell neighborhood come together to enjoy some ice cream, play some games, and meet neighbors... as well as learn more about some great local resources, businesses, and organizations.

Water Main sponsored a local business, Lady K’s Shaved Ice, so families in Folwell could have shaved ice - and reflect on the connection between clean water and this delicious summer treat.
