You're Invited: Ashoka Summer Series with InCommons

While winter snowstorms can bring out the best in Minnesotans (helping each other out of snowbanks, shoveling each others' driveways, and sharing information about snow emergencies to prevent a neighbor's car being towed), it's summer that truly brings Minnesotans out into the community. Join Ashoka Twin Cities and InCommons as they host a summer series focused on changemaking within the self, family and friends, neighborhoods, and institutions. There's food, drinks, and great storytelling to lure you out, and of course, the reminder to enjoy the warm summer sunshine while it lasts in Minne-snow-ta!
