Providing a Brave Place for Our Children

Sunday morning, our neighborhood, Sylvan Park, experienced antisemitism, racism and discrimination acts of hate. Five homes and bridge underpasses were vandalized with swastikas and racial slurs.

We will not tolerate this hate and our children deserve a better world and neighborhood. We know we can’t always provide a safe place, but we can provide a brave place for our children to learn and support every community.

We stand and guide with love and not hate while recognizing and teaching that the hate exists and needs to be talked about with action. Join us in talking to your kids about being brave in these spaces!

Garden Refresh

Thank you to Whitney Hutchens and the Sylvan Park families who cleaned up the garden and got it ready for spring planting!

Girl Scout Outreach

The Sylvan Park Girl Scout Daisies visited the West Precinct of the MNPD to tour the precinct, meet officers, and learn about how emergency responders serve our community. The scouts delivered cookies as part of their outreach this year and to say thanks to those who serve our neighborhood.
