Project

Brooklyn Center leaders are focused on building trust and partnerships with residents across all spectrums of diversity, ensuring they are viewed as decision-makers in co-designing city processes and policies. To support this work, the City Manager’s Office will partner with a FUSE Corps Executive Fellow for one year to design and implement a community engagement action plan focused on advancing racial equity.
