Saint Paul Almanac is one of Saint Paul's secret superpowers and I'm so grateful to be connected with this beautiful community. Sagirah Shahid, community editor Saint Paul Almanac is visual art, written word, and preservation of history. Yet, it is none of these things if it is not, first and foremost, a community. Our mission is to build community through telling and sharing stories, but most important, we work to give a platform to less-heard voices.

Given the tumultuous changes that seem to occur daily this year, elevating these voices is even more important than ever before. The stories of the impact of COVID-19, racial injustice and the resultant uprisings, and the historic U.S. general election are being told and will continue to be told with a sense of urgency that these voices demand. Help us to SAVE OUR STORIES.

On December 1, 2020, on GIVINGTUESDAY, you will have the opportunity to stand in unity with millions of people, who will use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and heal from our collective trauma as a nation and as a world.

GIVINGTUESDAY was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past eight years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

So, we invite you to participate heartfully on GIVINGTUESDAY. Help us to SAVE OUR STORIES by supporting Saint Paul Almanac’s literary and visual artists, and filmmakers.

We need your contributions so we may continue our work in 2021.

Let’s celebrate your generosity at our virtual BLOCK PARTY on Friday, December 4, 2020, 7:00 p.m. Come and enjoy the wonderful performances of our favorite literary artists, filmmakers, and recording artists at what will become the event of the season:
