City Stay Promotes Understanding

In a big city like Minneapolis where different cultural groups can be isolated in specific neighborhoods, it takes extra effort to break down the boundaries that separate people.

A nonprofit group called City Stay is doing exactly that.

The organization offers workshops and seminars and a summer program to help people learn about one another.   Participants from age 14 and up can join one or two week programs designed to de-mystify how others live. 

Julie Knopp is the executive director of City Stay.  She talked with KFAI’s Yvette Howie, who asked why the idea of City Stay is important.
