UMN Events

Please join us for our annual
Black Men’s Advocacy Day
Wednesday, Oct 14, from 11am-2pm

This year’s event will be in spirit of the 25th anniversary of the Million Man March, to recommit to making a difference in our communities, our families, and build fraternity amongst ourselves as Black men.

We will use this day to convene with our community and voice our needs and concerns. We will meet with legislators and chairpersons of important committees,  We have also invited dialogue with the Governor, the Speaker of the House, and the Attorney General’s Office.

This is just a continuation of a number of activities, events, and trainings that UMN has embarked on as we embrace the challenge of justice in our communities.

We ask that you kindly share this information with others, and if you can, join us on the 14th and beyond.
