This fact sheet gives an overview of the Minneapolis St. Paul’s Pilot Program “Building Community Resilience”.  It was developed in partnership with the Somali Minnesotan community and seeks to address the community-identified root causes of radicalization through increased opportunities and support. The program was launched in response to the more than 20 Somali-Americans leaving Minnesota in early 2007 in order to train and fight for al Shabaab in Somalia .
