In 2016, the Hispanic Advocacy and Community Empowerment through Research group (HACER) was contracted to conduct a second survey of Latino residents in Red Wing in 2016 to understand how the Latino members of the Red Wing community are living under a rather tough political environment. The results form the basis of the Latino Leadership Training Program II that was held in spring 2018. The workshop was facilitated by members of the HACER team.
Our work ranges from community gardens and healthy breakfasts to park renovations, pedestrian improvements, and making policies fair and equitable for all. Here’s what we’re doing now — and some of our past projects.
Live Healthy Red Wing funded 11 unique and important projects in our community to encourage healthy living for all. Projects included a boat-building project at Red Wing High School, improvements to the disc golf course at Memorial Park, addition of a beginner mountain bike trail at Memorial Park, replacing snowshoe bindings for physical education classes at Twin Bluff Middle School, and many more!
Funding for mini-grants has been exhausted. Thank you to the 11 grant recipients for completing their projects and making Red Wing a stronger community!
