The Southeast Como Improvement Association works to maintain and enhance the physical, social and economic environment of our neighborhood. Through programs that serve our community’s present and future needs, through communication, stewardship, and citizen involvement, we strive to foster a sense of community and to promote the neighborhood as a vibrant place to live and work.
In response to recent divisive federal immigration policies and local hate crimes that seek to harm our community and promote intolerance towards our neighbors, the Southeast Como Improvement Association (SECIA) affirms its unwavering support for every current and future member of our vibrant community. Southeast Como is comprised of people from diverse backgrounds—young students to senior citizens, recent immigrants to lifelong Minnesotans—and we are stronger because of this rich heritage. In light of these recent events, we must all stand up for one another’s rights to dignity, justice, and fair treatment. Now more than ever, SECIA encourages residents to use both actions and words to welcome all people who wish to live, learn, work, and play in our community.
