CURA’s Public Policy Design Lab worked with Restaurant Opportunities Center of Minnesota (ROC-MN) and Minneapolis-based artist Gina Pena to create a visualization of The Rice Activity: Contextualizing the Working Class. This activity was developed through an earlier research project conducted by a UMN Graduate Research Assistant (supported by CURA’s Kris Nelson Community-Based Research Program ) working with ROC-MN.

This visualization is based on a hands-on version of the activity that ROC-MN uses at in-person workshops. It's designed to support these workshops, as well as to share the activity and research with ROC-MN constituents and a broader audience.
