Communities Come Together to Improve Their Health

The City of Minneapolis launched the VOICE (Valuing Our Individual Cultures through Engagement) project to engage community members from various ethnic backgrounds in discussing how culture is connected to food, healthy weight and body size. The project’s goal was to give a voice to a variety of communities, promote positive health behaviors and give them the ability to transform through social connection and shared experience. Community Blueprint was given the opportunity to create a video summarizing the VOICE project.

The video’s goal was to communicate the project’s impact, process and mission to key community leaders and policy makers. Community Blueprint visited each of the VOICE groups to document their conversations, interview participants, and video overview of the project.
