Rebuild Businesses in Camden, Minneapolis

The Camden Community of North Minneapolis is a beautiful place filled with beautiful people. After years of divestment, Camden has recently become home to a growing number of small businesses that support our residents' retail, dining, wellness, and entertainment needs. Most of these businesses are owned by people of color and immigrants who work around the clock to live out their dreams and provide critical goods and services to our community. These institutions weave the fabric of the Camden village.

While the city grieved the tragic murder of Mr. George Floyd, a negative force invaded Camden and tried to destroy its community-grown wealth. Over the course of three terrifying nights, windows were  shattered, stores were looted, and buildings burned. Years of hard work and entrepreneurship were lost to individuals who came to terrorize our diverse community. The damage is painful, but our hope is profound.

It is in this spirit that the Upper Northside Business Association is collecting donations to rebuild the businesses we lost in May of 2020. We are asking for your help to restore our village and make our community whole. All money collected will be directly and proportionately distributed to the impacted business owners. Your donation is an investment in Camden and the people who call it home and you can help us rebuild.

The Upper Northside Business Association is a partnership between the Office of City Councilmember Phillipe Cunningham  and business owners and residents in Camden, Minneapolis. We encourage participation in the GoFundMes developed by some of the impacted businesses and seek to further their efforts while also bringing resources to the impacted businesses that do not have online fundraisers.
