Lake Street Initiative

In late May 2020 in reaction to the killing of George Floyd in South Minneapolis by a Minneapolis Policeman a peaceful protest began on Lake Street, Minneapolis near the 3rd Precinct of the Minneapolis Police station. At night, a riot broke out from the peaceful protestors and lasted for several nights. The aftermath was destruction of Lake Street businesses which devastated business owners and the people of the Lake Street neighborhood. 

See the pictures below showing the aftermath of the riots.    

In response to this StudiOne-Eighty is working with local community leaders, small business owners, and multi-national corporations to help the Lake Street community and businesses reimagine, revitalize, restore, rebuild, rebrand, and find healing and reconciliation of people in and around Lake Street and Minneapolis using meetings, workshops, strategic planning sessions with the stakeholder of the Lake Street community, businesses, and corporations.
