The 2019 legislative session will be filled with ups and downs. With a new Governor and new legislators, this is a time for nonprofits to show up, build relationships, and use our voices as powerful catalysts for change.

Session Line-Up is a not to be missed annual event where nonprofits hear directly from the Governor and legislative caucus leaders as they share their priorities for the upcoming session, identify issues they think will dominate the debate, and give their ideas on how nonprofits can be a resource to decision makers.

Session Line-Up will also feature:
•    A budget and tax outlook from the Minnesota Budget Project 
•    Minnesota Council of Nonprofits public policy team sharing their agenda for the legislative session and how nonprofits can stay informed and get involved
•    Time to connect with other nonprofit leaders, students, and policy experts
Join us as we share in the opportunity to get our questions on the legislative table at the beginning of session.

Scholarships are available for this event. Please contact MCN's public policy advocate, Taylor Putz, with questions or accommodation requests.

Principles & Practices

In an effort to support nonprofits in fulfilling their missions, this event will help to focus your work on the following practices:

  • POLICY 1: Nonprofits should help their clients, members, volunteers and donors learn how relevant policies affect them, develop their skills and knowledge in public policy making, and help them take advantage of opportunities to participate in the public policy process.
  • POLICY 8: In situations where an organization’s mission is directly affected by a public policy, nonprofits should lead advocacy efforts regarding the policy, which may involve a variety of advocacy activities including direct lobbying.
