[Minnesota Rising Dispatch] April 2015

[#mnrising Dispatch] April 2015

This past month found us in inspiring spaces and places all across Minnesota. From sharing about the "Our Minnesota" Cascading Conversations Tour with the Initiative Foundation in Brainerd and Saint Cloud to exploring microaggressions with LOCUS leaders to helping advance 6 new innovative ideas at the IDEA GENERATION at the MN Social Impact Center, we're excited to be connecting with incredible emerging leaders statewide!

Next month, we'll be celebrating our 6th anniversary and hope you'll join in the festivities at our May Sounding Board Session, bushCONNECT 2015 (where we'll host the #mnrising Imagine Lab), or at LOCUS' "Intersectionality with Intentionality." As always, thanks for your partnership and participation!
