[#mnrising Dispatch] November 2018

In the past few weeks, Minnesota has elected as Lieutenant Governor the first Native American woman to ever be elected to statewide executive office in U.S. history and the first Somali American elected to the United States Congress. Across our communities, we are represented by an increasingly diverse delegation of decision-makers, spanning those who are the original inhabitants of this land to some of the newer arriving refugee groups to the state. In other recent record-setting news, GiveMN's 10th annual Give To The Max Day raised over $21 million for nonprofits and schools on November 15, bringing the total raised by generous Minnesotans since's inception to over $200 million.

To contribute to this spirit of inclusive and invested leadership, see opportunities in this month's Dispatch to continue learning, speaking up, building relationships, and taking action to ensure equitable and vibrant communities. In particular, consider opportunities to lead state agencies as part of the Walz-Flanagan administration, volunteering with groups like the Science Museum of Minnesota and Reading Partners, or applying to serve on the leadership teams of LOCUS and LOTT.

During this season of reflection and gratitude, know we at Minnesota Rising are grateful for you as readers and partners in the network. Thank you!

Call for 2019 Leadership Team Applications

LOCUS was founded in 2013 as an initiative of Minnesota Rising, which works to build relationships, trust, and a shared vision for Minnesota, and focuses on developing the collective capacity of the rising generation. LOCUS, in turn, was created by and for people of color and/or indigenous peoples (POCI) to intentionally center ourselves in the conversation about Minnesota’s future. We host regular dialogues, events, and family dinners. We embrace and support each other through the pursuit of stronger connection and inclusiveness. Through these practices, we strive to cultivate a pool of identity-driven leaders, ready to lead in our local communities. Applications for our 2019 Leadership Team will be accepted through December 18, 2018. [Read more.]
