Community Week

  We talk with Kenza Hadj-Moussa, the Communications Director for the Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless about their 2015 Annual Conference held in Duluth last week, and their ongoing work to alleviate the problems caused by homelessness and to eliminate homelessness itself. 

We wrap up our Community Week series on Northland Morning leading up to the MCCU Twin Ports Bridge Festival tonight in Bayfront Festival Park in Duluth.  We talk with Xavier Bell, the director of Community Engagement for Community Action Duluth.  A speech that he gave back in 2011 was a touchstone for Shane Bauer to create the Twin Ports Bridge Festival.
