Campus Kitchen van in need of replacement

submitted by eschenba@augsburg.edu

The Campus Kitchen Program has had one main source of transportation for more than 10 years, a minivan named Clementine. Our steadfast and beloved van (which was named by students) has become too worn to carry out our work, so we are in need of a new mode of transportation. This is some of what a van allows us to accomplish:

By the Numbers

Six = the number of days each week Clementine is used to transport food, students, and staff.

100,000 = the number of meals Clementine has delivered to neighbors in need in the last 10 years.

27,996 = the number of pounds of recovered produce Clementine has hauled in one growing season from local farmers markets so it could be distributed to neighbors in Cedar-Riverside who have little access to fresh food.

Help us Keep on Rolling

We know we’ll have to move on without Clementine, and when a van allows us to get so much done, we know we can’t go for very long without finding a replacement vehicle. You can help by making a donation or connecting us to someone who may have a great used van at a reasonable price.

Crying Earth Rise Up

submitted by marubbio@augsburg.edu

Crying Earth Rise Up, narrated by Tantoo Cardinal, tells the story of Debra White Plume and Elisha Yellow Thunder’s efforts to stop the uranium mining contaminating their community’s drinking water. Informed by Native perspectives and belief systems, the film addresses the sacred relationship between water and life itself, as well as the conflicts between nuclear power companies, activists, and locals. With a nuanced look at what is becoming an increasingly common environmental battle, the film offers a case study of contemporary conservation efforts in the face of corporate and capitalistic interests (Crying Earth Rise Up). Crying Earth Rise Up acknowledges the centrality of Native involvement in opposing the particular practice of uranium mining and suggests Native communities’ wider spread contribution to a variety of other conversations related to environmental protection (although not always noted by mainstream media, e.g. the recent blocking of the TransCanada Keystone XL Pipeline) (Documentary Educational Resources site)
Join us for the film and a conversation with director/producer/cinematographer Suree Towfighnia and Debra White Plume.

What’s happening in CCV? A brown bag lunch conversation

submitted by frugek@augsburg.edu

Augsburg’s Christensen Center for Vocation is entering a new chapter, with a new vision for how this center can serve our students, the mission of our institution, and a growing network of faith-based community partners. We will be hosting two brown bag information lunches in the Augsburg Room on Nov. 20 and Nov. 26 from 12:00-1:00pm to share more about the direction CCV is heading.

Our center is deeply engaged with congregational contexts doing the work of vocational discernment centered on their neighbors and neighborhoods. In our new vision for CCV, these rich learning contexts can be combined with Augsburg’s unique approach to educating leaders who are informed citizens, thoughtful stewards, critical thinkers and responsible leaders. This will happen through a variety of initiatives, some new and some existing ones that are being re-imagined towards this more intentional vision. Our aim is to create mutually beneficial learning partnerships between students, faculty, ministry leaders, and congregations who share a commitment to being neighbor in real places with real people working to solve real world problems.

We hope you will consider joining us one of these days to learn more. Reach out to Kristina Fruge (frugek@augsburg.edu) or Jeremy Myers (myers@augsburg.edu) for more information.

Join us for a conversation about sustainability and equity on campus

submitted by bouzardg@augsburg.edu

Join us for a listening and action planning around how environmental equity shows up in our lives and on campus. Together we will collectively envision Augsburg’s commitment to environmental action beyond 2019.

Monday, November 11, 2019
4:30-6:30 p.m.
Marshall Room

Background:
In 2007, Augsburg affirmed its long-standing commitment to environmental stewardship, driven by students, faculty, and staff, by signing the Second Nature Presidents’ Climate Leadership Commitment. Since then, our campus has made some progress towards living out this commitment, including working towards being carbon neutral by 2019. However, we recognize we have not fully lived up to what this commitment requires, given the urgent realities of climate change, the remnants of an exclusive environmental narrative and movement built on white supremacy, and the clear demands for addressing inequitable systems that are interconnected. As an institution committed to its public mission and to educating students to be informed citizens, thoughtful stewards, critical thinkers, and responsible leaders, how can we take action that directs our power and resources to join the existing momentum of an equity-based environmental movement working for the collective liberation of our common home and community?

Community Organizing Skills: Power Mapping

submitted by bouzardg@augsburg.edu

Join the Sabo Center for our third community organizing skills workshop this semester: Power Mapping!

Tuesday, November 19
3:40-5 p.m.
OGC 114

People interested in promoting positive social change— through public work, civic action, advocacy and other vehicles—need to be aware of who else cares about their cause, and the political and social power structures in play. Social change agents need tools to access resources and to put their ideas into action. Power mapping gives participants a way to think about different kinds of power, and a set of tools to access the power needed to make things happen.

This workshop will be led by Dennis Donovan, national organizer for Public Achievement.
