  • Editor's Letter: How Iceland Reminded Us How We Intersect

  • In the following pages, we go deeper with two of the issues that are impacting the health of community: affordable housing and mental health. We look at how those threads are snagged, and hear from women who are part of the solutions.
  • Snag #1: Wages & Housing Prices
    In Minnesota, between 2000 and 2015, the median renter's wage decreased by 11 percent while the gross rent went up by 9 percent.
  • Snag #2: Non-Affordable Housing
    Even “affordable housing” costs tend to have a disproportionate impact on many Minnesota residents, especially women and seniors.
  • Snag #3 - Housing & Safety
    "We see that housing stability is one of the top reasons women stay in abusive relationships, because they have nowhere else to go.”
  • Housing Needs Statewide
    “[Society needs to] change the idea of housing as a privilege and not a right, because no one in society can be a productive member without housing." — Antisar Vickers, who fought against foreclosures in North Minneapolis
  • Solutions: Q&A With Acooa Ellis
    We asked Acooa Ellis, co-chair of the new Governor's Task Force for Housing, to explain the group's mission.
  • Connecting Invisible Entrepreneurs
    The March ConnectUp! summit aims to connect typically invisible entrepreneurs with investors.
