Our Health and Wellness planning group has been very busy this summer organizing and moving forward with our mission to improve the quality of life for all citizens of Duluth. In September we will be hosting five community events! We hope you will be able to join us at one of the theatre performances and also at one of the “World Cafe” community events. Flyers for these events are attached – please forward and post this information to all.
My Zip Code is Killin’ Me
”My Zip Code is Killin’ Me!” is an interactive theatre experience that explores the intersection of health and race issues facing our community. Join us for an evening of empowerment as we move from talk to action in the struggle to end health disparities and guild a strong community. Note: this performance encourages audience participation.
