VIRGINA — Bhupesh Pattni will present “Growing Up Biracial on the Iron Range: Challenges and Opportunities as a Community with a Growing Diversity” on Sunday, May 12, at the 10:30 a.m. service at Mesabi Unitarian Universalist Church in Virginia.
“My hope is that through a discussion, we can come up with ideas how we individually can build a more inclusive community and take steps to welcome those who may not feel a part of the community as a whole,” Pattni said.
Pattni was born and raised in Minnesota and graduated from Virginia High School. His father is of East Indian descent and was born and raised in Africa; his mother is Caucasian. Following law school, Pattni returned to Virginia and is currently practicing law.
