Lt Gov Peggy Flanagan

Lt. Gov. to Speak during Sunday Learning Hour

Lt. Governor Peggy Flanagan will join Rev. Dr. Tim Hart-Andersen, senior pastor of Westminster Presbyterian Church, for a livestreamed conversation during the 9:15 a.m. Learning Hour on Coming Together Sunday, September, 13. The event is co-sponsored by the Social Justice Forum and Adult Education Council. To watch and participate, visit Westminster’s Livestream.

Flanagan is a mom, an advocate, a member of the White Earth Band of Ojibwe, and Minnesota’s 50th Lieutenant Governor. Her career is built on standing up for children, working families, communities of color and Indigenous communities, and Minnesotans who have historically been underserved and underrepresented.

Given all that has transpired in the last few months in Minnesota and the nation—with Covid, economic collapse, and renewed urgency in addressing systemic racism in America—this will be a timely conversation. It will kick off the Westminster Social Justice Forum’s yearlong theme, “Wade in the Water: Becoming Antiracist,” and launch the Adult Education fall Sunday Series.

As a former State Representative, School Board Member, non-profit leader, and community advocate, Flanagan brings her experiences of building coalitions and advocating for children and families to the Lieutenant Governor’s Office. Westminster is honored to have her join us for Coming Together Sunday.
