As of June 2, 308 businesses across the Twin Cities had been vandalized, looted, had doors and windows smashed, burned, or had extensive water damage. Rongo’s Auto Service on 3548 Nicollet Ave is among them. The owner Gemechis Merga took over the shop in 2015, a prime example of a successful minority business. Design interventions that prevent damage and secure buildings can safeguard the well-being of community members.
