Logic On The Lawn

Once again on Saturday, September 28th, you are invited to gather at the home of Our Flounder: Dr. Bill van Druten.  Please bring along something to share: maybe some food you’ve made or some ‘spirits’ to enliven the conversation.  The fun starts at 1:00 pm, rain or shine, at his lovely home: 2931 Greysolon Road in Duluth.  Park anywhere on Greysolon Road but not on 30th Avenue.  This is the last of the Summer Series, however … Dr. Bill has graciously offered to continue the gatherings (indoors) during the winter!  They will take place once a month, so please watch for the announcements.

The Tourists Are Gone: It’s Our Turn

Time to visit Canal Park again.  On Wednesday, September 18th, freethinkers will gather to invade Little Angie’s at 5:30 pm.  Join our host, Sue Anderson, for “Tex Mex and a wall of Tequila.”  [Hey! Remember Loni Anderson from WKRP, which aired its first episode on September 18th of 1978? … well … no relation.] Share stories and hopes and dreams or just marinate in the joy of being surrounded by thoughtful people and Angie’s famous nachos.  Where Canal Park Drive meets Buchanan Street—maybe park behind Bellisio’s.

The War on Women’s Reproductive Rights: Alive and Well in 2019!

Women’s reproductive rights continue to be under assault, especially in the current political climate. While Roe v. Wade has been the law of the land since 1973 numerous restrictions have been enacted across the country and access to abortion care is more limited than ever, especially for women with less financial and social supports. As the former executive director of the only abortion clinic in Minnesota outside the Twin Cities, our speaker will share her experiences and provide an update on the current state of reproductive health care in these times.

Tina Welsh served as the Executive Director of the Women’s Health Center in Duluth from 1981 until her retirement in 2009. She has been an activist in the reproductive rights movement since 1970. The Women’s Health Center became a catalyst for the acquisition and foundation of the Building for Women, which opened in 1995.

Prior to joining the WHC, Ms. Welsh worked for Planned Parenthood of Minnesota and was one of the “founding mothers” of PAVSA (the Program for Aid to Victims of Sexual Assault). She later served on the Board of Directors for PAVSA spanning a period of twenty years.
