The Partnership

Thriving by Design - Rural & Urban Together is a bold joint effort by OneMN.org and Growth & Justice to spark a movement for Minnesota that builds a new future for our state where all Minnesotans can thrive together.

We are facilitating this through a continuous process that encourages a different approach to policy development and idea generation for communities, using a rural-urban, racial, and socioeconomic equity lens.
