Invest In Minnesota’s Communities, Not The Super Bowl

Activists are using the spotlight on the Twin Cities to draw attention to affordable housing and corporate mistreatment in their hometown. The Super Bowl is headed to Minnesota’s Twin Cities on February 4, and with it, analysts and officials promise, will come millions of tourism dollars. Questions linger about how much the game will actually bring in, but a group of Minnesota residents are fighting to bring the lion’s share of the sum back into the community. In the days leading up to the big game, more than a dozen local organizations are coming together to ensure that the needs of the community are front and center as sports fans descend upon the city. Octavia Marberry, one member of that coalition, is directing the spotlight towards the renters demanding safe and affordable housing.
