Social Action Team Welcomes New Leader

Social Action Team leaders met in late August to kick off Humanists of Minnesota advocacy activities under a new captain. Meline Juarez, a former union organizer with lots of advocacy experience, has agreed to head the team, taking over from Suzanne Perry. Suzanne will remain a team member but will shift some energy to HofMN communications activities. The team also welcomed Molly Wilbur-Cohen, an environmental activist who has agreed to lead advocacy efforts on climate change and related issues. Joyce Edwards continues to head work on health care, Bobbi Jacobsen on end-of-life options, and Audrey Kingstrom on criminal-justice reform.  Watch Meetup, Facebook, and the newsletter for announcements about upcoming advocacy events. And if you would like to join the Social Action Team, please contact Meline at melinejuarez@gmail.com.
