It has been a little over a year since George Floyd was tragically murdered — and in that time, many organizations, including MINN, vowed to make systematic changes. In the spirit of transparency, we wanted to provide an update on steps we have taken and steps we would like to take or work towards moving forward.


In the year since we all saw George Floyd’s life taken before our very eyes, we have felt deep sadness and anger, and we have watched again and again as Black lives continue to be taken. Yesterday, the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin concluded. While we are relieved by the jury's decision, it doesn't bring George Floyd's life back.


MINN is a volunteer led organization and our mission is made possible by the work of dedicated, talented volunteers. Volunteering with MINN is a great way to meet fellow international practitioners, learn from your peers, and gain valuable experience and connections. 

MINN is currently looking for volunteer team leads to advance volunteer programming for our Summit and Events volunteer teams. New Co-Chairs will have the opportunity to partner with existing volunteer leadership. Below please find descriptions of the two volunteer leadership opportunities:
