Three-hundred ninety-eight students were arrested in front of the White House this Saturday, March 2nd, after locking themselves to the fence in protest of the KXL Pipeline. XL Dissent was entirely self-organized by students on campuses across the country, including Minnesota, Michigan and other Midwest states, and drew heavily from Campus divestment coalitions.

On January17, 2014, St.Paul Central High School’s environmental club, Roots and Shoots, hosted its 2nd annual Dodgeball Fundraiser at the nearby Jimmy Lee Recreation Center. Why a Dodgeball Tournament? It was a fun way for the Central community to get involved and support Roots and Shoots’ effort to raise enough money to install two hydration stations.

It has been a great first semester for YEA! MN this year. I met most of the students for the first time at our Steering Committee kick-off meeting in August. It was two days after I started and I had little idea what to expect. 15 students and myself had pizza in one of the co-chairs attic bedrooms, and while the temperatures are frigid now, it was a sticky, hot, and humid first meeting. Noneless, I was inspired by their plans for the semester and ability to work as a team. From that first meeting on I have not been let down.
