The UpTake’s Northside Project: Documenting Dire Needs and Innovative Solutions

The Uptake, a citizen-fueled news organization, strives to find innovative solutions to the long-standing poverty, lack of jobs, and housing crisis in North Minneapolis. UpTake’s new Northside Project, a program supported by the Bush Foundation, is seeking out the individuals and organizations making positive changes in the area impacted by North Minneapolis’ May 22nd tornado. Below is one man’s “Story of Need.” The clip illustrates the organization’s goal to fully understand the wide range of needs in the area before finding answers to the problems swept up by the recent storm.
