A PLACE AT DEMOCRACY'S TABLE


Too often, citizens and community members feel like their voices aren’t being heard by decision-makers in Congress and in state legislatures. Join the movement for a more inclusive Minnesota. Come together with members of your community to rethink local government, redefine what it means to be a citizen, and discuss how both can evolve for the betterment of the community.
Local government can be different.

What is the Minnesota Community Assembly?


The Minnesota Community Assembly is a series of community gatherings that spurs participants to rethink civic connections, imagine how local government might be designed for the 21st century, and rebuild government to listen, understand, and act. At the end of the assembly, participants will have created policy recommendations, for both residents and elected officials , identifying opportunities for local government to better serve their community. The assembly will take place in a local venue for eight days over the course of three weekends.

All opinions, beliefs, and backgrounds are welcome. Click here to learn about the topics we will be discussing.
