The Harrison Neighborhood Association (HNA) is located in North Minneapolis. HNA empowers residents to better control their lives and influence their surroundings by engaging physical examples of racism and classism. Residents work to reclaim polluted land for housing and green space development, and to encourage commercial and industrial businesses on sites that are environmentally appropriate. Lastly they work to increase awareness of structures and decision-making processes to influence public policy and hold private business accountable.
