Join MINN for a Talk and Tour of the Aqui Para Ti Program at Whittier Clinic in Minneapolis to get an in-depth look at the organization in a small group setting. The agenda includes an overview of the organization by Dr. Maria Veronica Svetaz and Ursula Reynoso, and a private tour of their office. This Talk and Tour event is an opportunity for MINN members to gain first-hand knowledge of the workings of innovative community and international health organizations in the state.

This Women’s Food Security In International Development program takes place in St. Cloud.
Women are key to international development. Empowering women through health care, education, and finance results in better lives for themselves, their families, and communities. But what happens when people are unable to provide basic nutrition for their families? Women, in particular, are prevented from performing the economic and social activities that would otherwise lift their families from poverty, causing further dependence rather than self-sufficiency and prosperity.
The value of a human rights practitioner can range from being an advocate, campaigner, peacekeeper, investigator, to artist. However, sometimes when I share that I’m a human rights practitioner, I get a deer in headlights stare. As a MINN fellow, I’ve had the opportunity to share and, quite frankly, GEEK OUT about what it means to be a human rights practitioner through the extensive MINN network and by using my advocacy skills through LinkedIn.
