The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Job Disparities and Economic Development Opportunities.

Cunningham, Yolanda.

This report is intended to answer specific research questions regarding employment and contracting opportunities for minorities working for the city of Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. The report resulted from a project undertaken with African American Action Committee that (1) collected data on current employment disparities and hiring practices by the city related to people of color and (2) collected data on the construction contracts awarded by the city to minority contractors, developers, architects, and suppliers. The project's focus was mainly on African Americans, but the employment status of other minorities was also examined.
