Movement-Building: The Architects of What We Might Create

Diane Tran
As young Minnesotans, we can no longer wait for some appointed time to reach out and serve our communities. The tough problems we face as a state will not be solved with short-sightedness and polarization. Today’s problems will only grow increasingly complex as we age, and we have learned in our short time that change takes a long time. That’s why we need to begin the work now. Join this open space session to discuss current movements, highlight their characteristics and strengths, and to apply those learnings to revealing and crafting the strategy and infrastructure for Minnesota Rising’s work over the next two years. Emerging leaders are poised to be the next greatest generation; in this session, help us brainstorm how Minnesota Rising, and you, can make this our ultimate legacy!
