Minnesota Rising’s LOCUS initiative is hosting our second “Keeping Current” Happy Hour. Join us at Afro Deli to talk about current events and connect with other emerging leaders of color. See below for more details and to snag your seat today!
*This event is organized for and by people of color (and non-POC with other marginalized identities) as a supportive and courageous space.
On the heels of “Putting Into Words What I Live
” and “Intersectionality with Intentionality
” workshops focused on microaggressions, code-switching, and navigating multiple intersecting identities, LOCUS invites you to a casual summertime “Keeping Current” Happy Hour! Taking a few pages (and no more than that!) from the book club model, our prompts for light conversation include a recommended reading list of articles and videos covering recent and current events related to equity and inclusion.
Join us on the patio (or indoors in the case of inclement weather) at Afro Deli Coffee Minneapolis on Monday, June 22, from 6:00pm – 7:30pm to enjoy drinks and appetizers, discuss the Recommended Reading List and other related questions, and to connect with great local leaders of color!
