submitted by farrisr@augsburg.edu

Last week, WCCO featured the traveling “We Are Water MN” exhibit that is currently on display in Oren Gateway Center lobby. This interactive exhibit is a collaboration between six state partners and is hosted at Augsburg by the Somali Museum of Minnesota. WCCO came to campus to hear about how water issues impact local communities by interviewing Osman Ali, founder and executive director of the Somali Museum of Minnesota, and Britt Gangeness, program administrator at the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. Both individuals shared their perspectives on how water connects people, communities, and countries across the world.

“We Are Water MN” will be on display until August 14—stop by OGC to check it out!
