Choosing hope in times of disruption

Sages, activists and ancestors all tell us the value of choosing hope in our lives. Hope points us forward when we want to look back. Hope sustains and animates us through times of change.

Not a naive kind of hope. Not a blue skies kind of hope. But rather, a realistic and active kind of hope. A hope that starts with commitment and passion. A hope that starts with community engagement and activism. A hope that brings us together rather than pushing us apart. 

Join the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits for our 2018 Annual Conference. Hosted in St. Paul, this year's gathering is the perfect opportunity for professionals from every corner of Minnesota’s robust nonprofit sector to join together, celebrate the sector, learn from one another and prepare for another year. Let's choose hope, together.
