Governor Mark Dayton wants Minnesota to accelerate the pace of progress towards clean water
That is why he recently announced a new “25 by ‘25” Water Quality Goal, which would spur collaboration and action to improve Minnesota’s water quality 25 percent by 2025. Without additional action, the quality of Minnesota’s waters is expected to improve only 6 to 8 percent by 2034. Governor Dayton wants to hear from Minnesotans and will host a series of Town Halls over the summer and fall. In addition, he is calling on Minnesotans and civic organizations to organize their own Community Water Meetings this summer to provide further feedback and ideas.
Gather your community, school, family and friends to have a conversation this summer about what you can do at the local level to help Minnesota reach our 25 by 25 goal!
Hosted by Jewish Community Action, Suburban Hennepin Housing Coalition, and the St. Louis Park Community Housing Team.
Affordable housing is quickly disappearing in St. Louis Park. Join a panel discussion on affordable housing challenges and opportunities. View the PBS film “Sold Out” and hear from tenants and affordable housing experts about this critical community issue. Refreshments and child care provided.
Hosted by Congressman Keith Ellison.
Join Rep. Ellison to discuss President Trump’s false claims about voter fraud. What are the President’s goals for the Commission on Election Integrity? How do voter ID laws lead to voter suppression? What can we do to protect the right to vote?
Congressman Keith Ellison invites you to join his Save the Arts event to learn about the federal programs that fund arts and humanities. The event will be outdoors and limited seating will be reserved for elderly and disabled attendees. Please bring a blanket to recline on the grass!
At the event, local recipients of federal funding will demonstrate the impact of the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
The Public Leadership Institute is a 3-Day opportunity for TakeAction members and our friends in the movement to get grounded in our experiences – how they build a strong campaign that can authentically connect us as candidates or campaign staffers with the voters we seek to reach. We’ll learn more about how power and self-interest help to build a strong team for winning campaigns. And we will learn the skills to build a people-powered movement through fundraising, communications, and field work.
This training is very different from the Camp Wellstone training, which we strongly recommend for folks also. While that training is more skills based, we focus on the arc of building your own power to win campaigns, whether as a candidate yourself, or as a leader on the campaign staff.
Friday, August 25th, 6pm-9pm; Saturday August 26th, 9am-6pm; Sunday, August 27th, 10am-4pm
