Our February Volunteer Together event will be to help facilitate for the American Lung Association “Fight For Air Climb”. It is one of the American Lung Association’s signature fundraising events. These stair climbs are held in prominent skyscrapers, giving participants the opportunity to join together with friends, family and co-workers to climb to the top of the building! We will NOT be climbing! We will be volunteering from 8:30am-12:30pm on February 8, 2020. This event is open to ages 16+.
A few of the volunteer tasks include: replenishing the water stations, registration, greeters, gear check and passing out food/beverages.
ALA asks that all volunteers are willing to stand for a majority of the volunteer shift as this is a fast pace event with little time to sit. With over 100 needed volunteers on the Climb Day, we are always looking for more.
Registration is required so we can provide a count of volunteers. To register, go to: https://tinyurl.com/qrd77y5

What if you or someone else is the direct or unintentional target of bias? Are you afraid to speak up? Silence in the face of bias reinforces negative attitudes and behaviors. How can we break the cycle and be diplomatic as the same time? Join us to view the video Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts and participate in a discussion afterward.
Facilitator Michael Gregory is a Qualified Mediator with the Minnesota Supreme Court, and mediates regularly in Ramsey County Housing Court and Ramsey County Conciliation Court, as well as speaking professionally about overcoming conflict. This program will help explore the impact of bias and stereotypes and provide practical advice on how to speak up and help others to overcome bias and stereotypes without guilt or blame.
