Strong Women

In May we celebrated Mother's Day with stories of the impact of grandmothers on our lives for our Strong Women series.  Originally a public event, COVID-19 had us come up with a new way of  presenting these stories with hopes of reviving it in the next year or so, when we can all safely come together.

I live within walking distance of Minneapolis Police Precinct.

I have been onsite peacefully protesting everyday this week. I have been shot at with rubber bullets, tear gassed, hit with percussion bombs and watched people hit with “soft” bullets (see below). I’ve seen the police advance on citizens using violence and intimidation.

2020 is an extraordinary year, especially for local high school seniors.  They are experiencing something no one has gone through before:  celebrating and honoring their education in a world of social distancing.  Do you know a graduating senior?  We'd love to talk with them!  Email us. 

Britta Aas graduates from Bemidji High School this weekend.   She spoke on the morning show about how Covid has affected her senior year and the lessons she's gleaned during these times. 

National Public Radio's Rachel Martin reported earlier this week how one rural area has more COVID-19 cases per capita than nearly any other place in the United States: the Navajo Nation.

Listen, our lives have been turned upside down.  All people's lives - but what about the roles women take on?  How are they coping?  Are they coping?   We held a virtual listening session with some #itascastrong women and asked them how they were. 

Laura Connelly is our facilitator - let us know if you'd like to be a part of the next focus group!
