Making Home Through Community
For years, the amazing organizers at Avenues for Youth have been creating new ways of making homes for youth who lack access to housing. For February’s KaleoExpress, we are thrilled to welcome three of Avenues’ organizers – the fabulous community leaders Murad Owda, Rocki Simōes, and Ryan Berg.
We will share a reflective and interactive conversation about the impact of housing justice on Black, Native, Brown, Indigenous, POC, Queer and Trans youth, about the identities of place and belonging that shape our ideas of home, and about the experiences of home that shape our lives.
We will also have the chance to learn about the deeply innovative work that Rocki, Ryan, and Murad are leading at Avenues for Youth, and will learn how we can each get involved.
RSVP at www.kaleo.center/makinghome so that we can plan for food!
The workshop is free and open to all.
Spread the word and bring your friends!
Bagels, coffee, non-dairy treats, gluten-free delights, and good company starting at 8:30 a.m. Workshop from 9:00 a.m. – 10:30a.m.
Feel free to come late and leave early – we know that folks have lives that do not always run in straight lines. Children welcome!
United is fully accessible to power-chairs, has gender-neutral and single stall bathrooms, and is located close to buses and light rail.
If you have access needs, please contact Kaleo Co-Director at TGl6IHwga2FsZW8gISBjZW50ZXI= so that we can accommodate you. We will be live-streaming the event for people who aren’t able to be there in person.
Please park in the south lot at the corner of Wabash and Eustis Streets. You will see a large metal structure in the parking lot, and a large “CASE” sign over the main entrance doors. You will *not* see a sign for United Theological Seminary. Once you come in the building, proceed straight ahead past the various creative iterations of tables, couches, past the workspaces under construction, and past the whimsical indoor lawn games, and look for the “United Theological Seminary” sign. Enter the door underneath the sign, and follow the internal directions to the chapel.
Also check out other Workshops in Saint Paul.
