Individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex or asexual (LGBTQIA) continue to face violence, discrimination, and other human rights violations due to their sexual orientation or gender identity, not just in the United States but worldwide.
Global Minnesota is interested in bringing this global conversation to Minnesota, and we invite you to join this FREE EVENT, presented in partnership with Augsburg University (Center for Global Education and Experience (CGEE) and LGBTQIA+ Student Services).
Alumni from the U.S. Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program will join the conversation and share their human rights advocacy work, related to LGBTQIA+ issues, in their home countries. The event will be moderated by our very own Raziel Valiño who is a member of Augsburg’s Center of Global Education and Experience (CGEE) and the coordinator of Red Migrāre (UNAM).
The program will include breakout rooms, lead by 3-4 Augsburg students, with the opportunity for audience engagement and participation.
Join us individually OR as a classroom!

Presenter: Lisa Joyslin, Minnesota Association for Volunteer Administration
Many organizations struggle to engage volunteers who reflect the racial and ethnic diversity of the communities they serve. In response to this issue, the Minnesota Association for Volunteer Administration (MAVA) recently embarked on a research study which resulted in the development of a set of eight strategies for creating a more inclusive volunteer program within nonprofit and government organizations. These strategies serve as a starting point for leaders who are seeking concrete next steps to better engage volunteers from racially diverse and immigrant communities.
In this interactive session, you’ll learn about the eight strategies, share your own experiences, and create an action plan for launching a more inclusive volunteer program within your own organization.
Identify the barriers that racially and ethnically diverse communities face when trying to volunteer
Learn about concrete strategies for creating a more inclusive volunteer program
Create an action plan to determine next steps for inclusive volunteer engagement at your organization
