Born in 2012

A 2012 Blue Ribbon Commission (BRC) report charged Everybody In with the imperative role of supporting and aligning regional economic development; implementing strategies to reduce racial employment disparities; and proposing actionable steps to be implemented within five years. Everybody In was initiated through Ramsey County’s Board of Commissioners and Workforce Investment Board, the City of Saint Paul and the City of Minneapolis.
