Close the Gap: A Community Guide




What is the Community Guide on Race, Class, and Place Disparities in the Twin Cities?

The Community Guide on Race, Class, and Place Disparities in the Twin Cities is a manual designed for Human Rights Commissions, non-profit organizations and community organizers. It is an accompaniment to the 5-part documentary series created by Twin Cities Public Television (tpt), based on the Mind the Gap research findings on race, class, and place disparities.

The first documentary, Making the Case, introduces the findings of the Mind the Gap research.

The other three documentaries on Race, Class, and Place focus on these three disparities in the Twin Cities by telling the stories of Minnesotans experiencing negative personal and community impact resulting from these gaps.

The series concludes with Making Change, an inspiring collection of successful practices developed by individuals, local businesses, government services, and faith-based organizations.
