Young people voted in historic numbers to protect our freedoms and our future. Now it’s time for our elected officials to Fund our Future! We can be a state that honors every person’s dignity and create an economy that meets all our needs. We deserve and could have bold climate action, a world class transit system, affordable healthcare for all, Paid Family and Medical Leave, childcare for every child, and an honest and affordable education. On April 11th, we will speak with our collective voice to rally for our values, meet with our elected officials, and learn how to stay engaged.

Join us during Earth Month for an open mic evening to share the art of resistance: Poetry, music, visual arts, and manifestos that explore the topic of social and environmental justice. Readings can be in English and/or Spanish. All are welcome!
We frame resistance as cultural expressions that unite us in our opposition to oppression and that create paths to freedom and promote justice for all. Spanish and Cross-Cultural Studies faculty would be happy to help you choose a reading in Spanish or English to share, or you can choose to write your own. Artwork can include posters, photos, or paintings. Music can be of your own composition or created by others. Choose something that inspires you and that you want to share with others!
Location: Hagfors Center, Room 150
Contact: Zoe Barany, Environmental Stewardship Coordinator (email@example.com) or Kate Reinhardt, Instructor of Languages & Cross-Cultural Studies (firstname.lastname@example.org)

The Minnesota Urban Debate League is a program of Augsburg University. We provide academic competitive debate to 1,200+ students across 9 districts in the Twin Cities. We find creative ways to adapt and innovate the debate format to meet student needs- and that’s what our financial literacy debate program is designed to do!
Research shows that young women and gender expansive youth have less knowledge and confidence in their financial literacy.
We know that debate helps students build their knowledge, skills, and confidence in its regular format- and that other urban debate leagues have seen a 35% increase in financial literacy thanks to similar programming! Help us make it possible here in the Twin Cities- volunteer!
Our Financial Literacy tournament this year will take place on Saturday, June 3 from 9:30 AM – 2:30 PM at Augsburg University. Students will be debating about financial institutions and which is best for individual needs based on a profile presented to them upon entering the debate round.
The affirmative team will always argue that a large national bank is best and the negative team will choose whether they want to argue that a credit union, community bank, or neobank is best for the profile presented.
This opportunity includes judging 3 debate rounds and then attending a networking lunch where students can chat with their judges about their financial interests, questions, etc.
We need volunteers to make it happen! Please sign up if you meet the following criteria:
• Have significant financial knowledge (judges are typically financial professionals)
• Identify as women, or gender expansive(since this program was created for students that identify in this way)
If you have any questions, please let us know! We hope to hear from you soon or see you at the tournament!
