[Minnesota Rising Dispatch] September 2018

[#mnrising Dispatch] September 2018

The start of another school year, the recent autumnal equinox, and the cooler weather of late are sure signs that we are transitioning to a new season in our Minnesota geography. So we anticipate the upcoming holidays—civic, religious, state—and prepare ourselves to recognize Indigenous People's Day on October 8, celebrate Día de los Muertos and All Hallow's Eve at the close of the month, and vote in upcoming local and national elections soon after.

Minnesota offers voter registration online, by mail, and in person. In Minnesota, you can also register at your polling place on Election Day (this includes registering when you go to vote if you are voting early). To help you make good on your #IWillVote pledge, visit the Secretary of State's website to register.

The result that the Institute achieves is purposeful and effective leadership with a renewed commitment to community service. [Read more.]

Indigenous People's Day

2018 Festival
Indigenous Peoples Day is a celebratory gathering that continues to honor the perseverance and culture of Indigenous people. In 2014, the Native American Community Development Institute (NACDI) worked with the Native American Urban community to campaign and won to recognize Indigenous Peoples' Day instead of Columbus Day in Minneapolis using community development, engagement, and organizing. All My Relations Gallery (AMRA), and NACDI is hosting an Indigenous Peoples Day Festival to raise awareness, and provide education of Native American Arts. [Read more.]

Center for Economic Inclusion

Most U.S. cities compete with one another to attract talent and corporations. In the Minneapolis-St. Paul region, we compete with ourselves by overlooking growth opportunities in our own front yard. Our region will only unlock its full potential when our economy works for everyone, but our values of equality haven’t yet resulted in racial and economic equity. We need a roadmap and fuel to guide our next steps. Keynote Speaker Dr. Andre Perry will identify inclusive practices, policy levers, and proactive roles each sector must play to ensure our region grows because of our diversity not in spite of it. Doing so will align our actions with our values and further position Minneapolis-St. Paul as a hub for talent, investment, and innovation. [Read more.]
