Knowing Our Worth
Immigrant and Refugee Women in Minnesota
https://www.mnhs.org/votesforwomen From suffragist Jenova Martin to former state senator Mee Moua, and from human rights advocate Fanny Brin to US Representative Ilhan Omar, immigrant, and refugee women have been leaders in Minnesota society and politics for more than a century. In this moment, when immigrants and refugees find themselves at the center of intense public debates, join Vangie Castro, Nimo Farah, and Carolina Ortiz for a conversation about their experiences as changemakers in Minnesota today. Moderated by oral historian and author Kim Heikkila. Knowing Our Worth is a three-part series offered in conjunction with the online exhibit Votes for Women. Each program features a conversation with Minnesota women about citizenship, voting, and community activism and how they are continuing the work of expanding democracy in the 21st century. The Votes for Women exhibit is sponsored by Major Sponsor, Securian, and Associate Sponsors, Dorsey & Whitney, and Andersen Windows and Doors.
