Support Girls & Gender Expansive Youth In Financial Literacy Leadership Debates

Are you a woman or gender expansive person employed or studying in the field of finance?

The Minnesota Urban Debate League, a program of Augsburg University, serves middle and high school students in the Twin Cities. We are looking for leaders to join us as volunteer debate judges for our Financial Literacy Leadership Debates program.

In this program, girls and gender expansive youth learn about core financial literacy subjects through the fun, engaging, and competitive vehicle of debate. The topic this year involves the advantages and disadvantages of banking at a large national bank versus a local credit union.

No debate experience is needed – we will train you. Attend our luncheon at Augsburg University in late spring and share your story! Please sign up here for more information (dates TBA):

Calling Public Speakers and Aspiring Voice Actors – Build Your Portfolio and Help Twin Cities Students

submitted by

The Minnesota Urban Debate League is a program of Augsburg University. We provide academic competitive debate programming to more than 1,200 Twin Cities students. We’re seeking remote volunteers for the 2023 Spring Semester!

We know that one of the reasons debate helps students improve their literacy is that students are engaging with all four foundational skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Because many of the students we work with are English language learners, one of the most powerful tools we have to help rookie debaters learn is auditory supplements to our written packets. With these recordings, students at all skill levels will be able to follow along with the text as they read, learn evidence while doing other tasks like doing chores or riding the bus, and rapidly improve their literacy and information retention.

How You Can Help

We are seeking volunteers to record our evidence packets at a conversational pace (120 words per minute). Help us record evidence for the following programs:

• East African Debate: Record nonfiction evidence about a topic central to the East African Debate community in the Twin Cities (TBD), written in English. Recordings needed by March 1st.
• Financial Literacy Leadership Debates: Record nonfiction evidence regarding the advantages and disadvantages of banking at a large national institution versus a small, local credit union. Recordings needed by April 1st.

Volunteers need to be able to speak slowly, clearly, and with energy. No special recording equipment is required, although we do ask that you record in a quiet space with minimal distractions. We can edit your audio for you.

Interested? Please contact Rebecca at to let us know, and/or fill out this form:

Everyone is welcome to check out the Augsburg Staff Union’s first union contract on our website, linked below.

These benefits, secured for union staff in our contract, are the result of the Augsburg Staff Union’s negotiations over the last two years. We are so glad that the administration decided to extend the benefits we secured in our contract to all benefits-eligible staff, even those not in our union. This was our hope when we formed a union — that we could help improve working conditions for everyone.

Reproductive Freedom Lobby Day

Minnesota State Capitol: 75 Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, St Paul, MN

Minnesotans made their voices heard by electing the first pro-reproductive freedom state legislature in decades. But the work isn’t done, now we must show up louder and stronger than ever to push decision makers to pass bold legislation protecting and expanding abortion access in Minnesota.

Our Leadership Agenda for Abortion Access creates a clear path, but legislators need to hear from you that reproductive rights, health, and justice is still a priority for you. On lobby day, you will have the opportunity to ask your representative to:
– Repeal Minnesota’s Unnecessary Restrictions to Abortion
– Protect Patients from Post-Roe Attacks
– Ensure Equitable and Affordable Access to Abortion Care

You will get the resources and training you need to be equipped to talk to your representatives. You’ll also get to hear from leaders and healthcare providers across the state who are fighting for reproductive freedom. The day will culminate with a rally in the rotunda.

Thank you for joining us to advocate for every Minnesotan’s right to make their own decisions about if and when to become a parent.
