[#mnrising Dispatch] January 2022The end of January marks the completion of the first month in the new Gregorian calendar year as well as the end of the current lunar year. February 1, 2022 kicks off the Year of the Tiger, Black History Month, and in Minnesota, statewide precinct caucuses. These shifts urge us to honor tradition and cultural customs toward auspicious ends, acknowledge and celebrate all that Black excellence has contributed to our history and culture, and to engage urgently and locally to ensure our leadership and decision-making represents and invests in all of the best of our communities. Wishing you and yours good health, peace, and prosperity in the new lunar year!
