[#mnrising Dispatch] November 2021

Daylight Saving Time ended this month, having us "fall back" to Standard Time. The twice annual clock adjustments are one issue upon which our split legislature could come to bipartisan agreement during the most recent legisltaive session. As daylight continues to diminish while we count down the days to the Winter Solstice in Minnesota, may you and yours find light and warmth in opportunities for connection, honored traditions, and celebrating recent and upcoming holidays including Diwali, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hmong New Year, and more!

Lead for Minnesota Fellowship

The Lead For Minnesota Fellowship is a launching pad for a lifelong commitment to public service in a community that Fellows call home. Great candidates want to serve the community, or communities, that helped make them who they are. This begins with a one-year AmeriCorps Service term where Fellows are placed within a local organization (e.g. nonprofit, government, service-minded organization) to serve in a full-time, paid position addressing critical community challenges.
