Peace Pole Video

Troop 51195’s sixth video featuring the planting of the Peace Pole Gardens in several St. Paul neighborhoods. From the girls of the Troop:

We designed and planned a specific garden at the Ramsey County Yard Waste sites of Midway, Frank & Sims, Summit Hill and Battle Creek. Melvin Giles taught us a Peace Pole chant and we did it after planting each garden. We also blew Peace Bubbles which were from Melvin – cool! We love our gardens.

The groups were brought together by concerns over the light rail and want to show their care, concern and pride in the University Avenue communities.

Community Justice Project

This is a 2-minute video submitted with the Community Justice Project case team application for the Carter Partnership Award. The University of St. Thomas Community Justice Project works at improving the lives of the African American community in the Twin Cities. The CJP, directed by Professor Nekima Levy-Pounds, has engaged in intensive research into practical solutions to longstanding challenges such as racial disparities in the criminal justice system, police brutality, and racial disparities in the educational and juvenile justice systems for at-risk youth. The award application was made in partnership with the NAACP of St. Paul.

The Carter Partnership Award honors a recipient whose campus-community partnership program addresses critical areas of public need undertaken by a college or university in partnership with a community group. The award was created as a tribute to President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Carter for their lifelong efforts to develop and support safe, healthy, and caring communities throughout the world. They have consistently supported public improvement efforts based on cooperation, mutual learning, and shared responsibility.

The winner will be announced at the end of the month.
