Asian Minnesotans at the Capitol
April 2 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join Coalition of Asian American Leaders (CAAL), Filipinx for Immigrant rights & Racial justice Minnesota – FIRM, India Association of Minnesota (IAM), Karen Organization of Minnesota (KOM), Minnesota Private College Council, and Philippine Study Group of Minnesota (PSGM), Release MN8, Reviving Islamic Sisterhood for Empowerment (RISE) and The SEAD Project at this year’s Asian Minnesotans at the Capitol. This event is for everyone- whether it is your first time at the State Legislature or 100th, please come advocate and learn about the legislative process.
The day will start with a brief training about how to talk to legislators and go over key priority issues. After the training, you will have the opportunity to meet with your Minnesota State Legislators to discuss issues that matter to you and your communities.
Updated March 18, 2020: To reduce the spread of COVID-19 and comply with CDC and MDH’s recommendations to avoid being in crowds of people we will change the format of the Asian Minnesotans at the Capitol on Thursday, April 2, 2020 into a virtual advocacy day in lieu of the traditional in-person event we have organized over the years. In place of the in-person event, we are exploring digital avenues to continue advocating for issues that affect our community.
This event is free, but we would appreciate early registration to give the event planners time to both plan and schedule meetings with your legislators.
Priority Registration Deadline: Friday, March 13, 2020
Final Registration Deadline: Wednesday, March 25, 2020
