- We acknowledge that the land we are on is within the sacred, traditional, ancestral, and contemporary lands of the Dakota and Anishinaabe people. It is important to acknowledge the peoples on whose land we live, learn, and work as we seek to improve and strengthen our relations with our tribal nations.
- Advance from acknowledgment to action by learning more about indigenous history and culture.

We will provide a quiet room in the Odense Room, located off of the Denmark Commons for participants who need a space to take a break from conference activities.
Lactation Room / Gender Neutral Bathroom
The lactation room is a single-stall restroom on the 3rd floor with a comfortable chair, table, and outlet. Signage on the door will indicate that it is designated as lactation only.
To find dining options, we recommend:
- The hotel has provided a list of restaurants based on their distance from the hotel. Review the Restaurant Guide_Royal Sonesta Updated June 9 2023.docx (Microsoft Word 2007 (.docx) 33kB Jun10 23).
- We also recommend the hotel website and Meet Minneapolis.
