Protect Minnesota

Protect Minnesota is an organization working to end gun violence, with its simple yet challenging focus being that “gun injuries and deaths are preventable.” We support and partner with the work of Protect Minnesota because we share a principle that every person and every community has a right to safety in their neighborhood, schools, parks, public spaces and homes.

Saint Paul Area Council of Churches (SPACC)

Over 700 saint Paul area congregations work through SPACC “to build a more just and compassionate society.” As SPACC expands from an interchristian to an interfaith body, it addresses poverty, racism and violence; strengthens American Indian families; helps congregations dismantle systemic and institutional racism; provides overnight shelter for families; and offers academic and cultural enrichment programs for African American children.

Walker West Music Academy

This non-profit St. Paul school, serving about 325 mostly inner city students, was founded in 1989 by two African-American musicians. Teaching a wide range of music, it survives on donations and needs money for scholarships and instruments. Tuition now covers 53% of operating costs. WW offers hope for many talented kids who have few or no similar opportunities. The directors are very interested in developing a partnership with us. We help with fundraising efforts, grounds maintenance, and connections.
