We deserve an equitable, peaceful city. It’s going to take all of us working together to build it.

We are a multiracial, multigenerational group of people from across Southwest Minneapolis. We first met in the summer of 2021 in a Fulton neighborhood backyard and have blossomed into a welcoming and energizing force for change.

The Southwest Alliance for Equity (SWAE for short) is a community of neighbors who are organizing for a Minneapolis that lives up to its ideals.
