Minnesota State Senator Mary Kunesh, is a champion of racial and gender justice. The first indigenous woman to serve in the Minnesota Senate, Mary is the Senate author of the Equal Rights Amendment bill, working tirelessly to enshrine the ERA in our State Constitution. Yay! Her legislative focus on Native American issues, education achievement and economic security is influenced by her personal experience as a once struggling single mom with 3 kids and 25 years as an educator.
Jaspar Lepak is a folk/Americana songwriter whose remarkable gift for melody is only surpassed by her poetry. She sings with an emotional depth that touches the heart. She will share songs from her upcoming album “So Strong” which focuses on themes of choice, parenthood, and caregiving.
PLUS Shanan Custer with a beautiful story of family assumptions and healing, brand-new Mama, Dae Yang, the intrepid Silvia Pontaza AND the insightful Zippy Laske with a new song celebrating what’s possible, even now.
