Join us August 20, 2022, at the first-ever health and wellness block party for North Minneapolis designed to empower the community to build trusting relationships with health and wellness experts and make it easier to make healthier decisions.
Live Your Healthy Lyfe – an event by the Northside community for the Northside community – is a block party designed to draw as many as 2,500 people to the area while providing Black residents with additional accessibility to and awareness of health services as they fight the stigma around addressing health-related concerns due to systemic racism.
Live Your Healthy Lyfe will feature guided community conversations, healthcare screenings and vaccinations, mental health consultations, a variety of Black-owned vendors, art activities and music, all to empower the Black community and help elevate the quality of life for residents through mental, physical and spiritual wellness, education and activity offerings.
It’s going to be a block party that not only feeds people’s bodies and minds, but their souls, as well.
Additional details about wellness resources, talent, food vendors and more will be announced in the coming weeks.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Black people are more likely to die at early ages from all health-related concerns than their white counterparts. Nearly 84 percent of the Northside is comprised of Black and brown people, with the highest concentration of Black-owned Northside businesses between Penn and Logan Aves. on West Broadway Ave., the location of the event.
“Lyfe” is spelled with a ‘y’ to highlight that this event is about asking questions like ‘why’ and finding answers. The community needs to be its own catalyst for sustainable change, and information will continue to drive better health-related choices. Now is the time to collectively reimagine a healthy Northside with action and input from Black voices and allyship.
