Our superstar designer Jessica Karels debuted an early version of the social networking tool we plan to roll out at the Spring Conference. This dynamic tool will allow organizations and individuals from across Minnesota to plug into resources, activities and actions based upon needs, interests and skills. It will also allow organizations to share what they are doing and their upcoming projects and activities. We are smitten and can’t wait to share!

We’ve started to outline two tracks for our conference: a track for those interested in activism and one for those interested in advocacy. The days will start and end together, but these tracks will allow attendees to easily plug into the sessions that best suit their interests.
