A portion of the event proceeds will benefit OutFront MN. Their mission is to create a state where lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people are free to be who they are, love who they love, and live without fear of violence, harassment or discrimination. Their slogan is Leading Minnesota Toward LGBT Equality — reflecting the leadership role we provide in moving the state toward the elimination of homophobia and toward full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, and bringing allies into the movement.  OutFront Minnesota provides this leadership by delivering programs and services to Minnesota's LGBT and allied communities in the areas of community organizing, public policy, anti-violence, law, education and training.



Eureka Recycling, a local nonprofit waste-reduction organization, is proud to partner with us to make the block party a zero waste event again this year! Through careful planning and the participation of everyone attending, this event can generate no waste. By eliminating, reusing, recycling and composting all the discards generated here, we are greatly reducing our impact on the environment!



Thanks to all of our partners!
