The Field Regina Northrop Neighborhood Group is one of the earliest neighborhood associations in Minneapolis. Beginning in 1965, the FRNG pioneered urban activism in campaigns that helped end red-lining practices of lenders in Minneapolis neighborhoods, established mid-block lighting and created safer neighborhoods around the city, and helped protect local natural resources from poorly designed renovation efforts. In the 1970s, the Field Elementary School combined with the nearby Hale Elementary school in an effort that was nationally lauded as a successful integration attempt.
