Apply for Undoing White Body Supremacy Pilot Project

submitted by

Dear white-bodied colleagues,

Are you unsure how to respond when a fellow white-bodied person says or does something with a racist impact? Do you ever find yourself, despite your best intentions, feeling uneasy or tense when the topic of race comes up? Do you ever experience the impulse to fight, flee, or freeze in racialized moments and then struggle to navigate the shame of inaction or imperfect action? Are you eager to build loving, accountable community where we can learn to cause less harm and lean into the discomfort that comes with growth?

Learn more and apply to be part of a 2019-2020 academic year cohort of white faculty and staff learning to undo the ways white supremacy shows up in our bodies, not just in our minds. Applications are due by 5:00 p.m on Monday, May 13, 2019. Selected participants will be notified by Friday, May 17, 2019.

The Sabo Center is convening the Undoing White Body Supremacy Pilot Project in partnership with Augsburg’s Equity and Inclusion Initiatives. Contact Rachel Svanoe ( or Allyson Green ( with questions about this opportunity.

Community garden digging, Friday 9-11am

submitted by

The community garden still needs a little help getting ready for the season – we have about 15 in-ground beds that need their soil loosened up and fed with good nutrients so that our gardeners can begin planting. Come help us dig for a few minutes or a few hours! You don’t need to know what you’re doing… just be willing to dig. Wear sturdy shoes and clothes you can get dirty. Bring work gloves if you have them.

Drop by the community garden anytime between 9-11am Friday to help!

Seeking smart phones in working order, used okay

submitted by

A group of volunteers are seeking three smart phones for a family of asylum seekers staying in Minneapolis. The four of them have one telephone and it would be great if they could all be connected. The Lopez parents have two boys, 18 and 15, and phones would help them feel more secure as summer comes and bike-riding season starts. In addition, they need to be easily contactable to receive court and government communications. If you have one or more phones in working order, unlocked or T-mobile ready, that you would like to donate, please contact Sherilyn Young at 651-224-7308 or Thank you.
