Originally known as the Mayor's Racial Harmony Team, this community movement started through the office of the Mayor in St. Cloud. It has grown to include other cities and counties, a broad base of area businesses and organizations, and many interested individuals.
Create CommUNITY began to address racial and other human rights issues in central Minnesota. Research conducted in 2007 by Upfront Consulting helped further define the focus areas, establish indicators and identify gaps between the majority community and communities of color. The focus areas are: educational attainment, health care access, access to housing and the functional area is awareness building.
The Create CommUNITY Fund is held at the Central Minnesota Community Foundation.
