OK…a few words. This is my dear friend Halle (who has put me to work this week :)). She is a Community Organizer currently working for The Remembering with Dignity Project – with Advocating Change Together. This project is marking the numbered or unmarked graves of Minnesota’s state hospital cemeteries where former inmates, Minnesota citizens, were buried with numbered or unmarked graves. The goal is to ensure that each person has their correct information on their new grave-marker.
I love working with kids on photo projects. They are SO candid and utterly uninhibited. Poor teachers…I leave a trail of chaos behind me. Today I visited a small Catholic school in the neighborhood. The kids are working on a special project to support Fresh Grounds, a non-profit coffee-house and social venture that is a great place to hang out and is also a job training site for at-risk youth.
Here are a couple of my favs (oh, by the way- the Archdiocese is closing this school..too much money dontcha’ know. Of course they have lots of dollars for other battles, but I won’t sully the post with politics.) If anyone HAS a million to donate- that is what it will take to keep the school open, and these kindergarteners won’t be scattered about.
