A Message from Global Minnesota Regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus)

At Global Minnesota, our valued members, partners, volunteers, and employees are at the heart of what we do. That’s why we want to share how Global Minnesota is working to help keep our constituents healthy and safe during the novel COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.

We are closely tracking communication from federal and local health agencies to make sure we stay up-to-date and monitor the situation. Based on official health guidance and in an effort to do what we can to help keep our community safe and healthy, we have canceled or postponed some Global Minnesota-hosted events. However, several of our programs will move online and be offered in a digital format. We hope you will join us for the important global conversations we have coming up. Visit our Calendar of Events for more information.

You can also visit our Past Events page for online content from previously held events.

As the COVID-19 situation evolves, we will continue to communicate with you on the status of future events and how to best keep our Global Minnesota community safe. Thank you for your partnership during this unprecedented time and your continued commitment to cultural exchange.

A Courageous Woman’s Search For Her Abducted Husband Marches On

Pioneer Press writer Rubén Rosario sat down with 2020 International Women of Courage awardee Susanna Liew from Malaysia to learn about her courageous story and work in fighting for religious freedom.

Susanna is one of this year’s 12 recipients of the U.S. State Department’s International Women of Courage Awards and is honored for her selfless dedication to fight on behalf of members of religious minorities who have disappeared in Malaysia or face persecution for their beliefs. She has endured police harassment and death threats, but has never stopped actively pursuing justice, including on behalf of her husband Christian pastor Raymond Koh, who was abducted in 2017.
