ReConnect Rondo is leading a nationally-recognized effort to revitalize an historic Black community divided by Interstate I-94 through a land bridge that will serve as a catalyst to reignite a vibrant African American cultural enterprise district in St. Paul, MN. As a community-based non-profit organization, RCR is spearheading a restorative development movement whose mission is to lead the effort to revitalize the Rondo community with a land bridge that reconnects Rondo and reignites a vibrant African American cultural enterprise district in St. Paul.
