Join the streets.mn board
streets.mn seeks additional board members. We seek individuals who will improve the board balance of racial, ethnic, gender, sexual orientation, and sexual identities to more accurately represent Minnesota. We also welcome board members from a variety of occupations and perspectives--one must not necessarily have a background in public policy or urban planning to be considered.

streets.mn thinks transportation and land use news and information in Minnesota can be done better. This site fosters positive connections and inclusive conversations about better places in Minnesota. A better place is one that is…

People-centered: transportation and public spaces should center on people rather than private vehicles
Future-oriented: the built environment should be designed for the needs of future generations, and in the context of a rapidly changing non-human world
Justice-driven: cities, towns, and streets should empower and include people of all ages, especially the vulnerable and marginalized
Delight-cultivating: places should inspire happiness and wonder in all seasons and all times of the night and day

The board meets monthly in the metro area. It is a working board, and members are expected to participate in creating a healthy organization. Board members lead most work groups of the organization and are expected to spend time working on streets.mn initiatives outside of board meetings.

Board expectations:
Be committed to fostering positive connections and inclusive conversations about better places in Minnesota
Prepare for and participate in 12 board meetings per year
Devote 10 hours per month working on streets.mn initiatives, working groups, or committees
Attend at least two social or other special events sponsored by streets.mn throughout the year
Use their networks and skills to promote readership of the blogs and forums and raise the visibility of streets.mn
Contribute financially, either personally or by raising money through networks/efforts
