Sometimes we have fears and anxieties about ourselves, our communities, the world at large, and what might happen in the future. This is a chance to share your fears (which are bigger than general concerns) in a statewide, anonymous survey. Data results, with some comments, will appear in the January issue of Minnesota Women’s Press. 

Whether these are fears that affect you personally, or not — and whether you speak out loud about these fears, or not — we appreciate your reflection and willingness to share. We believe that it is only in understanding our fears that we can address solutions that matter to us. Please share this survey link with other Minnesotans you know: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/P9HVWJL
