SARAH’S… AN OASIS FOR WOMEN
Moving from Exclusion to Belonging: Immigrant Rights in Minnesota Today, a groundbreaking report from The Advocates for Human Rights, centers on the human rights of refugees and immigrants in Minnesota. The report places its findings and recommendations within the context of state, federal, and international human rights law to identify what is working to promote integration and success, what is failing, and what gaps exist in public policy.
Released April 2, 2014, the report draws on nearly 200 individual interviews and more than 25 community conversations involving hundreds of people throughout the state of Minnesota.
Sarah’s was well represented at Homeless Day on the Hill. In addition to our staff, a few of Sarah’s residents attended as well. We had a wonderful opportunity to share our concerns regarding more affordable and permanent housing.
Sarah’s… an Oasis for Women has been chosen as a 2014 charitable recipient from the Cities 97 Sampler Volume 25. This donation will be used to begin much needed renovations in Sarah’s kitchen. Sarah’s extends love and gratitude to the Cities 97 radio station, community, partners, charitable committee, and listeners for their generosity!
