[Minnesota Rising Dispatch] June 2016

[#mnrising Dispatch] June 2016

As this election year continues to heat up, we were excited last week to host a powerful event in partnership with Minnesota Public Radio's Generation Listen entitled, "Keeping It 100: Politics In Your Community," highlighting the unique civic pathways of four young Minnesota changemakers. Check out event photos online and watch for more news next month to access the broadcast or podcast featuring Nevada Littlewolf, Luis Moreno, Abeer Syedah, Kevin Vollmers, and moderated by MPR's Doualy Xaokaothao! Summer boasts ever more ways to get involved and connected to creating civic change across the state (check out the news from the network column at right for some ideas) and is also the perfect time to unwind as a resident and simply enjoy Minnesota's arts, parks, lakes, concerts, recreation, foods-on-sticks, and more with family and friends. In all cases, enjoy the sunshine and celebration of our shared natural resources and community capital!

May 10 Identity-Driven Leadership Workshop Recap

The Ashlees
On Tuesday, May 10, 2016, Minnesota Rising and sister initiative, LOCUS, hosted an identity-driven leadership workshop as a part of this year’s BushCONNECT. More than 50 people spent the day immersed in thoughtful reflection and courageous conversations about race, ranging from strategies for self-care and community healing to unpacking the meaning of allyship and empowerment. To get the day started, facilitators led participants through a series of brief exercises to emphasize individual identity exploration and active listening as the foundation for the day’s work. Aeriel and Kyle Ashlee, of Ashlee Consulting LLC, helped frame the day-long program with a story-centered lens, encouraging participants to speak from their own lived experience and value the gift of bearing witness to others’ stories.
