About Moving Lives Minnesota
MLMN on MN Channel: Wednesdays 8-10pm
Moving Lives Minnesota: Stories of Origin & Immigration (MLMN) explores the histories of the many communities who have moved through and to Minnesota.
MLMN brings Minnesotans together to recognize and honor our similar and different backgrounds and experiences. We hope through this statewide initiative by the PBS stations of Minnesota, story-sharing will build empathy and understanding across our communities.
MLMN is designed to deepen understanding of our state's origins and immigration history, increase empathy by learning about each other's heritage, backgrounds and experiences, and strengthen connections between communities throughout Minnesota.
Our team of advisors has shaped the development and production of content, activities and experiences throughout the statewide initiative. With their unique expertise, we explore challenging concepts seeking outcomes that will change the way we think about our collective histories.
