A positive, local response
to climate change
Neighbors addressing climate change
Transition Town — All St. Anthony Park
Smaller Footprint, Stronger Community
We’re neighbors linking up to live responsibly on the Earth. Our ideas are as many as the challenges we all face. But they may not yet include yours. Come, think, work, and celebrate with us!
Our purpose is to raise our neighborhood's understanding of climate change and the limits of fossil fuels, and to foster a positive, community-wide transition to more sustainable ways of life... ASAP. ASAP reminds us that climate calls for our best efforts, right now. All Saint Anthony Park means South and North; renters and homeowners; newcomers and long-timers; businesses and nonprofits, youth, students, and seniors; faith groups, people of all ethnicities... all are needed. (See a map of our area of St. Paul, Minnesota.)
The 100 Trees Initiative is greening the streets of South St. Anthony Park. We're among the partners in this collaboration with the Creative Enterprise Zone.

During the pandemic, we've reflected, grieved, and dreamed of a better world. We've also learned new habits, some worth keeping! Keepers is a zine by neighbor and book artist Regula Russelle. Read it here, then print copies to share (instructions).
Help raise local awareness of our climate emergency and the solutions at hand. Give to Transition Town - ASAP.

Ojibwe author David Treuer tells of Native American reservation life, past and present, and the current movements to preserve language and culture. He illuminates issues like sovereignty, treaty rights, ecosystem conservation, and casino economics. Treuer grew up on Minnesota's Leech Lake reservation and now divides his time between there and LA, where he teaches creative writing at USC.
We'll meet twice, discussing the first half of Rez Life on April 29, the book as a whole May 20. Come to either or both sessions. (Read a sample, then consider a local bookshop like Next Chapter.) For Zoom links, email Communications@TransitionASAP.org. Learn more about Reading Buddies.
