The Native American Community Clinic (NACC), University of Minnesota Community-University Health Care Center (CUHCC) and Native American Community Development Institute (NACDI) hosted a gratitude lunch for members of the American Indian Movement (AIM) who watched over the Philips and Seward Neighborhoods during the George Floyd protests, and protected the critical health centers and other businesses and non-profits in the community.

The lunch took place July 10 outside of the Minneapolis American Indian Center on Franklin Ave in South Minneapolis.

A new mural (by artists Rory Wakemup and Natchez Beaulieu) was also unveiled.
