Minnesota Women's Press Changemakers Gala


Please join us as we commemorate 35 years of the Minnesota Women's Press — the longest continuously run feminist print publication in the country.

• Storytelling is about reminding us that we are all part of a circle. 

• Good storytelling moves us beyond our individual lives to show us how to converge — it widens our circle.

• Great storytelling refocuses our attention on values that enable us to thrive in solidarity as a community.

Join us in deep discussion and inspiration at a fundraising event designed to enhance the power of storytelling as we step into "The Year of 20/20 Vision" — enabling us to see our world in a different way.

Why Support This Magazine Now?

Minnesota Women's Press is unique. We are not a news gathering magazine, with reports done largely by visitors to a story. We offer primarily first-person storytelling, diverse perspectives, and progressive action steps. We have ambitious plans for 2020.

• We are dipping into 35 years of coverage to offer perspective on how Minnesota is evolving, and is not, on issues such as gender-based violence, racial equity, economic power, political leadership, and feminism and choice.

• We are talking to partners about developing a podcast about "Shifting Narratives."

• We aim to expand statewide distribution, enhance forum conversations, and deepen our Storytelling Fund in a crucial year of electing values.

This Gala will help Minnesota Women's Press develop the team and the tools we need.

All genders and identities welcome!
