[Minnesota Rising Dispatch] September 2021

[#mnrising Dispatch] September 2021

This month’s Solstice and the Mid-Autumn or Moon Festival call our attention to earth’s seasonal transitions, reminding us that even as we acknowledge that the bright long days of summer have passed and anticipate the cold dark period leading us toward year's end in the northern hemisphere, our job as always is to be here now. In the midst of Hispanic Heritage Month, see the YWCA Minneapolis' list of Hispanic and Latino/a/x/e Businesses and Organizations to Support and the Minnesota Council on Latino Affairs' (MCLA) efforts to highlight Latino Minnesotan leaders, stories, and issues. ¡Feliz Mes de la Herencia Latina 2021!
