The most important part of working toward equity is YOU.
There are many ways you can work with us to promote equity in Brooklyn Park.
Partners in equity
As a city government, we care a lot about equity, but there’s also only so much we can do. Knowing that, we partner with other organizations and individuals to combine our resources and expand the impact of our work.
Brooklyn Bridge Alliance for Youth
The Brooklyn Bridge Alliance is a partner organization whose purpose is to support positive youth development in Brooklyn Park and Brooklyn Center.
BrookLynk is a youth employment program directed by the cities of Brooklyn Park and Brooklyn Center.
Brooklyn Park is one of 92 cities involved in Cities United, a national movement to eliminate violence in cities related to African American men and boys.
Joint Community Police Partnership (JCPP)
Created in 2007, the JCCP works on improving communication and understanding between law enforcement and diverse residents. The partnership is a collaborative effort between Hennepin County and multiple cities.
Our most important partner: you!
The most important part of working toward equity is YOU. We do everything we can as a city government both directly and working with our partners, but we also need your help making sure that our efforts reach and benefit every single person who lives in Brooklyn Park.
Get to know your neighbors
One of the most valuable things you can do to create a united community is to welcome and get to know your neighbors! New Connect is a program that seeks to do that. We’re always looking for more volunteers to make sure that everyone who lives in Brooklyn Park feels welcomed and a part of our community.
Join a commission
Commissions are a great way to provide direct input to your local government. We rely on our commissions to help direct the work we do and make sure that our efforts align with our residents’ and business’ needs. If you’re interested in getting involved in equity work, consider joining our Human Rights Commission in particular.
Help shape our future workforce
BrookLynk is a dynamic and exciting program with the goal of helping youth overcome barriers to employment. Since its start in 2015, the program has helped connect over 100 young people with employers. Your business could be the next great partner!

Hold us accountable
As your local government, we work for you! We rely on your involvement and feedback to make sure we’re doing the best we can for our community.
