[Minnesota Rising Dispatch] September 2016

[#mnrising Dispatch] September 2016

Minnesota has a storied history of ranking high nationally in levels of voting and volunteerism. And you can be a part of continuing that trend. 38 days remain until Election Day 2016 - are you registered to vote? This month featured National Voter Registration Day on September 27, so here's your timely reminder to update your registration if needed and to vote early if desired. You can register online through the Minnesota Secretary of State’s office. In the meantime, check out the events below and in the sidebar for upcoming opportunities to build community and connect to changemaking initiatives!

Fall Family Dinners

LOCUS invites you to Family Dinner this fall! Looking for an opportunity to connect and dialogue with other emerging leaders of color and Native emerging leaders around issues of code-switching, microaggressions, and intersectionality? Want to share your personal experiences and hear others' stories and perspectives about race, culture, and identity? Join LOCUS for a series of informal, intimate conversations over meals at ethnic- and minority-owned restaurants across the Twin Cities. Together we'll support local small businesses, engage in building relationships and trust across our diverse cultures, and participate in the self-reflection and collective exploration necessary for developing Identity-Driven Leadership. Save the date(s) from 5:30pm - 7:30pm on Mondays: October 10 and 24, November 14 and 28, and December 5 and 12! *LOCUS will provide light appetizers but participants are responsible for the costs of any additional meals and beverages.
