[Minnesota Rising Dispatch] January 2019

[#mnrising Dispatch] January 2019

2019 is off to an historic start with the longest U.S. government shutdown in history and the polar vortex visiting record-breaking cold temperatures across the Midwest and beyond. To keep up the cold front, celebrate with The Great Northern 2019, which brings together legacy festivals and original programming, all highlighting Minnesota at its wintry best with an accessible, family-friendly focus. To get a break from the frigid air, consider joining a human rights delegation focused on migration and social movements in Honduras this spring. And to make sure our communities count in 2020 and continue to be fully resourced in the years to come, get active with the Minnesota Census Mobilization Partnership. Wishing you warmth in the meantime!

The sessions are for anyone who is interested in learning more about community engagement, or for those who wish to deepen their work with community.

East Metro Pulse

But the way a community functions is more nuanced than numerical.The Saint Paul and Minnesota Foundations released the second volume of East Metro Pulse, a survey of residents in Dakota, Ramsey and Washington counties that measures community vitality and quality of life. The data is free and available, and the Foundations encourage policy makers, funders and local leaders to use the data to find opportunities to learn, champion important issues and create new networks that will benefit the community.
