Third Thursdays

Third Thursdays Social Resistance Gathering is a new series taking place on the third Thursday of each month (although we have moved it to the fourth Thursday this month, due to the timing of Rosh Hashanah). The event is a chance for community members to come together, socialize, strategize, learn and recharge to continue the good fight protecting progressive values in Minnesota. 

Standing with Refugees and Immigrants in Minnesota in the age of Trump.

Join Women's March Minnesota and the Minnesota Resistance Coalition Thursday, Sept. 28, 6-8 p.m. at Black Dog Cafe for an in-depth panel discussion on refugee resettlement and immigration issues under the current administration.

Spots are filling up fast. Register now to save yours!

Speakers: 

  • Jaylani Hussein, CAIR
  • John Keller, Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota
  • Sen. Patricia Torres Ray

Topics:

  • What are the laws and policies in place? 
  • What is happening to real people in real time? 
  • What can be done in response? 

Deportations, DACA, the Muslim travel ban, limits to the refugee resettlement program—a panel of experts, including legislators and immigrant rights advocacy groups will cover the impact of these policies on our local schools, economies and communities, paired with strategies to take legislative and community based action. This is a good opportunity to have your questions on these important subjects answered, become more effective in your legislative and social activism, and get connected with more like-minded resistors.

Registration is required. If you change your mind, just let us know so we can give your space to someone else.
