Session may be over, but our advocacy doesn’t stop once our legislators leave St. Paul! We’d like you to join us on July 15th, from 2:00pm-4:00pm, for MN-CCD’s Summer Full Membership Meeting to learn about the events and activities that MN-CCD has in the works for the summer and fall months.

  • Our Grassroots and Communications Committee will be discussing Candidate Forum and Town Hall Forum activities for the late summer and fall.
  • MN-CCD’s Strategic Planning Teams will finish their first quarter’s goals at the end of June, and will provide an update on their activities and progress.
