Please support HF 2093. We are requesting $20 million in funding that would enable East Phillips to buy back the 7.6 acres of the former Roof Depot site from the City of Minneapolis to support East Phillips and Little Earth’s vision of:
Community self-determination through community ownership
Building infrastructure for a healthy and sustainable community
Reducing harmful cumulative environmental health impacts on our neighborhood
Reconnecting indigenous people to land, foods and medicine
Building a replicable model for a just and sustainable future
