Joel Sisson ’91 is helping conduct three pop-up workshops in some of the areas hit hardest by the riots as part of The Green Chair Project.

The Green Chair Project was started in 1991 as a combination of public art, community building, and job training that would provide opportunities for underserved youth. Thirty years later, many of the initial people involved are stepping back in for this summer collaboration with Elpis Enterprises, a Saint Paul-based nonprofit organization that provides job training, work experience, and job placement for homeless or precariously-housed young people ages 16-23.
