March 3 INTERGENERATIONAL LENT EVENT!

Please join us!

March 10 “When Home Won’t Let You Stay” exhibit open.

Courtney will lead us in a time of learning together through presentation, conversation, and activities that will help us understand more fully what life is like for people living with various kinds of disabilities.

March 24 “Diversity Challenges in Employment Rights” with Linda H.

Come and learn how diversity in our workplace raises new challenges between employers and employees; the ways the federal government limits employment protections for some people; and what laws still protect people seeking jobs and working.

March 31 “Efforts to Ban Conversion Therapy in Minnesota,” with Emma M. of Outfront, Minnesota.

Emma will bring us up to date on efforts to make Minnesota the fourteenth state in the USA to ban conversion therapy. Although the bill before the legislature was approved by committee on Feb. 14, it may face tough sledding going forward. In addition, Emma will speak on other front-burner public policy issues facing the LGBTQ+ community.
