We're proud to be a co-sponsor of Do It Green Minnesota's 12th Annual Green Gifts Fair at the Midtown Global Market, Saturday, November 18. This year's theme, "Green for All," focuses on how we can create a welcoming environment for all Minnesotans. There will be 80+ eco-gift vendors, community building activities, demos in multiple languages, a creative expressions lab, free music, a family passport with prizes and more.
All Are Welcome Here is excited to partner on two activities with the International Institute of Minnesota, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping New Americans achieve self-sufficiency and full membership in American life.
Stop by our table to write a postcard (or two!) of encouragement and support for New Americans studying for their citizenship test. The Institute will distribute your messages to their students in class and on the day when students take the oath of citizenship!
In the spirit of reuse/recycle, we're also collecting new and gently used winter coats and boots for the International Institute's on-going winter clothing drive. (Hats and mittens are also needed, but they must be new. You can see the complete list here.) When you drop off your new or gently used donation, we'll all give you a high five and pin you with a complimentary All Are Welcome Here button!
