Learn More and Take Action!

Policies are about people. And if we want to live in a state where all can thrive, no matter who they are or where they live, then bold and just policies must be a part of the solution. It is critical that policymakers hear from all of us — concerned constituents and organizations — to lift up our diverse range of experiences, expertise, and perspectives as they work on issues that impact our families, our communities, our organizations, ourselves! Be a part of the solution for a stronger, more equitable Minnesota: raise your voice and advocate today.
