Project Lulu

Something Project Lulu knows is that creative expression is healing. Duluth-based non-profit Project Lulu "brings expressive arts opportunities to individuals and communities in need, especially those living in health crisis." Through an upcoming workshop series called "Arts Express" Project Lulu invites people who's life has been touched by cancer including survivors and caregivers to discover, connect and express through writing, dance, drawing, collage and more.  Is this you?

Seatbelts, more responsible behaviour and a decline in drug abuse boosted Minnesota to #1 in the latest Kids Count report* ... and the state achieved that ranking even though the child poverty rate increased to 14%.  Trouble is, the child poverty rate nationally has increased even more dramatically.  So although there is something to celebrate with this latest report, it doesn't tell the whole story.

This morning we wrap up our Talking Politics series, checking in with our state legislators.  Freshmen Representative Jennifer Schultz is serving in her first elected public office and shares how this first session is going; from committee work to how she advocates for Duluth.
