2016-2017 Issue Series : December 8, 2016

On Thursday, December 8th, 2016, Nexus BCLI had its second Issue Series of the program year. At this event, we had three great guest speakers come share their experiences from their varied perspectives on the issues of economic development. In particular, they talked to the power of people organizing around the planning process. Guests were Vicki Moore, a veteran community organizer, Kate Lamers, a Minneapolis city planner, and Va-Megn Thoj, executive of the Asian Economic Development Assocation (AEDA). This event was hosted at the East Side Neighborhood Services in Minneapolis.

2016-2017 Issue Series : November 3, 2016

On November 3rd, 2016, The Twin Cities BCLI kicked off its first Issue Series in partnership with HOPE Community Inc., to talk about positional and community leadership. Executive Director Mary Keefe, along with Community Resilience Organizer Oduabaa and Director of Youth Leadership and Community Outreach Andrew Hopkins (Dhop) came to share their wisdom and experience about leadership. The guests had deep discussions about the differences, and sometimes overlap of what leadership means on an individual level versus the type of leadership and authority that comes from skills learned, groomed and given by official titles and positions.
