Working Together Toward SolutionsCI-equity-500.png

The Wilder Center for Communities is committed to addressing complex challenges that will advance equity in Saint Paul and across Minnesota. In our Community Initiatives, we work alongside community collaboratively crafting solutions that impact systems, organizations, communities and individuals.
