Saturday, November 10            8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Wilde Roast Cafe, 65 SE Main St, Minneapolis, MN 55414


Did Democrats take the U.S. House? Did the Blue Wave lead to control of the Senate or did the map favor Republican incumbents? What happened in the 8th Congressional District? The First? Who controls the Minnesota Legislature?


With Senator Kari Dziedzic


kari dziedzicAt this month’s Stone Arch, State Senator Kari Dziedzic takes us through what changed on November 6.

Kari's District 60 in which Stone Arch meets is a very diverse area.  It includes the birthplace of Minneapolis – where the mill industry first boomed along the riverfront.  It includes all of the neighborhoods in NE Minneapolis and SE Minneapolis, the Cedar Riverside area of Minneapolis, and the northern part of the Seward neighborhood in Minneapolis.   This area has always been home to immigrant populations, and includes many recent immigrants.

As usual, invite anyone interested--free and open to the public. Come, buy your coffee (the law is you can't bring food or drinks into a restaurant), learn a lot and have your questions ready.
