[Minnesota Rising Dispatch] November 2020

[#mnrising Dispatch] November 2020

November marked Transgender Awareness Week and Transgender Day of Remembrance, Native American Heritage Month, and the U.S. holiday of Thanksgiving. A month, at its best, focused on honoring our origins and intricacies, and growing giving and gratitude. We can bring this awareness forward into the future by contributing with pride via #GivingTuesdayLGBTQ, understanding with counsel from the Native Governance Center about Tribal sovereignty and governments and why treaties matter, and practicing in spite of our differences of identity and opinion, Turning Toward Each Other as we navigate conflict and complexity. 

Day by day, we are making it through 2020, this year of pause and pandemic. Individually, and together. Much gratitude this month and always for your continued readership and connection!

Give to the Max Day 2020 and Giving Tuesday

GiveMN salutes your generosity. Tens of thousands of Minnesotans and people around the world answered the call on #GTMD20, giving tens of millions of dollars to thousands of causes across our state. On behalf of GiveMN's nonprofit and school partners, thank you for continuing to support communities across our state and fueling their critical work. And on December 1, you'll have the chance to be a part of a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world on Giving Tuesday.
