Somali-American Group Honored for Community Leadership

The Ka Joog organization, a group of nine Somali-Americans who provide hope, direction, and vision for Somali youth in one of the largest Somali communities in America, was selected by the Minneapolis Division as the recipient of that office’s Director’s Community Leadership Award. The words Ka Joog mean “stay away” or “stay out”—a message to encourage kids to stay away from drugs, violence, radicalization, and other negative influences in the community. Pictured above are members of Ka Joog, along with Minneapolis Special Agent in Charge J. Chris Warrener (fourth from left) and Media Coordinator Kyle Loven (fourth from right).
