The UpTake has a new mission statement – here’s what it means.
Have you heard about these four queer-centered spaces in Minnesota?
Today we’re talking about efforts to defund the Public Employees Relations Board with Saint Paul Federation of Teachers President Nick Faber. We’re also talking about the somewhat unexpected budget numbers with Clark Goldenrod with the Minnesota Budget Project. We’ll also hear from Antonia Alvarez, an immigration justice organizer currently on day seven of an 11-day fast in Washington, DC. Alvarez is President of a statewide and regional organization called Pueblo de Lucha y Esperanza. Finally we’ll hear from Steve Sandberg, Board member with the East Phillips Neighborhood Institute, on the future of Roof Depot property in Phillips neighborhood.
With Pride Month upon us as many COVID restrictions simultaneously lift, we are doing mini-features of a number of LGBTQIA-centered spaces, places and resources for queer folks to use and for allies to support. Watch for part two next week!
