Hosted by Women's Advocates
From the host: Women's Advocates, a domestic violence shelter for women and children located on Grand Avenue which was the first domestic violence shelter in the US, wants to invite you to our free educational panel on domestic abuse this October on the evening of the 22nd. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Our panel will include several individuals from various professions, including the Dakota County Sheriff (whose department hosts a one-of-a-kind electronic crimes unit), a sexual health educator, two midwives, a housing advocate, the Public Policy Director of the Minnesota Elder Justice Center, and a trauma therapist.
At the panel, the audience will learn how the six different forms of domestic violence (physical, sexual, emotional, financial, digital, and reproductive) affects personal and professional lives of all kinds, and will hear the stories of the panelists about their experiences related to domestic violence.
National Council of Jewish Women are co-hosting several candidate forums leading up to the election, and would certainly welcome any help promoting them.

Water protectors from Ginew, a new grassroots encampment focused on direct action trainings and lead by indigenous women, will discuss the recent struggle against Enbridge's pipeline (Line 3) in northern Minnesota. The collective of organizers base their work on the principles of inclusivity, indigenous-led non-violent resistance, and the protection of Mother Earth for generations to come.
A handwritten post-card is one small part of campaigning that can help mobilize people to vote. Getting people to the polls can help us flip the House seats in Minnesota!

Another election is upon us, but why is it important to participate?
Our democracy depends on your civic activities, but your well-being depends on your and everyone else's participation in our political process.
Join us for a community event to discuss the importance of political and civic engagement. Minnesota has one of the highest voter turnout rate at 74%, compared to the national rate of 59%. Beyond voting, we need to be more informed about the issues, the candidates and pay greater attention to policies that impact us. Come share your ideas on how to be more engaged and what is at stake for you.
Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey will join us to open the event.
