‘Minnesotans United’ Reception in New York City
Happy Monday Ex-Pats!
A friend who knows of my love for all-things-Minnesota recently sent on the following fundraiser invitation, and I thought it would be pretty uncontroversial to assume all us Minnesotans in NYC are against the bizarre attempt by some unfortunate motherlanders to constitutionally ban same-sex marriage.
In addition to making NYC a much friendlier place with our Minnesotan cheer, I think we definitely have to embrace our two-way street of geographical dislocation and cultural exchange. Namely, it’s important that we do what we can from afar to make sure Minnesota remains a bastion of tolerance and warmth in the Upper Midwest.
With that in mind – have a read below, check out their website, and seriously consider if you’ve got the cash to make a suggested donation. It sounds like it’ll be a really fun time!
With Love and Faith in a Tolerant Minnesota,
