The Augsburg Podcast S3, E5 – Hannah Dyson: Putting the “Story” in “History”

submitted by chambek2@augsburg.edu

Hannah Dyson discovered a remarkable overlap in her theatre and history interests when interning at the MN Historical Society. Writing stories for MNopedia about fraudulent towns and journalistic assassinations, Hannah developed a passion for storytelling that connects past and present – and her Augsburg and historical society mentors have helped her focus her ambitions. Her storytelling explores justice and freedom of press both historically and in our own future.

Want to Help the Homeless from Your Home?

submitted by clarkk@augsburg.edu

COVID-19 is currently spreading in the homeless shelters and encampments with many confirmed cases. We are looking for volunteers who would be willing to call the governor and mayor to immediately evacuate shelters and place individuals into hotels. In light of the St. Paul woman who was accidentally bulldozed while her camp was being evicted, we are also calling the state, city and park board to explicitly allow encampments by opening park grounds and facilities as well. We are organizing this through phone zap where we call and ask for this to be addressed in an organized effort.

You can sign up to make a phone call or more here https://calendly.com/housing-phonezap/phonezap-shift-signup?month=2020-04.

Also, you can find us at https://www.facebook.com/cantstayhomewithouthousing/. Thank you for considering.
