CLNE Partnership and Gala Invitation


The Racial Equity & Justice Ministry (REJM) at Nativity is proud to announce that the Center for Leadership & Neighborhood Engagement (CLNE) has been approved as a Mission Partner of Nativity for the remainder of 2022. The Mission Partnership is an internal designation which helps us to organize our community partnerships and comes with a modest financial contribution. REJM has been developing a relationship with CLNE for over a year.

CLNE has been a great resource and partner in building intercultural competency, expanding new relationships with others invested in racial equity and justice work, and supporting youth leadership development in North Minneapolis, while also building Beloved Community in the Twin Cities metro area.

In the spirit of this partnership, Pastor Kelly Chatman of CLNE has invited the Nativity Community to join CLNE at the St. Paul NAACP Gala on Saturday, June 18. The NAACP is an opportunity for the congregation to be in relationship in a non-white space among non-white leaders.
