Loving the New Southeast Look this
As most of your know, the creation of the new logo and name was a long, long process with many years of discussion. The new logo incorporates the beautiful natural environment of our community. We will continue to update the look of our materials and website for the new few months.
Movie Night: Viewing and Discussion Jim Crow of the North
Jim Crow of the North is a documentary that charts the progression of racist policies and practices from the start of restrictive covenants after the turn of the last century to their elimination in the late 1960s. >> Hear from documentary creator Daniel Bergin and Kirstin Delegard from Mapping Prejudice.
Why is this important?
When we examine our shared histories, including racist practices, we deepen our knowledge about how the decisions of earlier generations created the communities we live in today.

The Census: Everyone Counts
Minnesota could be at risk of losing one of our U.S. Representatives. Our national representatives advocate for us in Washington. We have eight, and this may be reduced to seven if we don't make sure that everyone completes the census. An inaccurate count will affect our representation and federal funding.
By April 1, 2020, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. When it arrives, respond in one of three ways: online, by phone, or by mail. Please speak with family, friends and neighbors and remind them all to fill out their census. If you need information to share with others or want to help us spread the word, please contact our office.
Census takers are also desperately needed. Follow this link to apply.
