The cost is $35 in advance or $40 at the door. Women between the ages of 18 and 35 may “pay their age” to attend.

Celebration 24, the annual event of the Minnesota Women’s Consortium will honor women who work for justice in the statewide community. The Consortium is now two dozen years old and 150 organizations strong, connecting groups that together represent over 200,000 Minnesotans.

Balch is the Community Outreach Coordinator for the Resource Center of the Americas where she helps to build community while working with immigrants, students, teachers and community organizations. Balch is the coordinator of the Minnesota chapter of the Colombia Support Network, disseminating information about human rights abuses and educating about the intensity of the war in her country. As a witness to the injustices in her own country, Rosita works tirelessly to connect people. She educates about social and economic justice in our local community. She believes we must speak up about the injustices we witness or we become accomplices.

Celebration 24 will be hosted by Cathy Wurzer of Minnesota Public Radio’s “Morning Edition” and Twin Cities Public Television’s Almanac.” In addition to the awards program, Celebration 24 will feature a women’s craft fair, sale, and a delectable buffet.
