Join us for a virtual Coffee with Congress event with Representative Dean Phillips. At the event, Rep. Phillips will provide an update on his work and happenings in Washington, D.C. and the 3rd district in Minnesota, and he'll hear from you and answer your questions.

Coffee with Congress is a series of forums where you can present your questions and share information directly with your Congressional representative. Coffee with Congress events get the perspectives of Minnesota's entire independent sector in front of Minnesota's Congressional delegation through a hosting partnership between the Minnesota Council on Foundations, Minnesota Council of Nonprofits, Greater Twin Cities United Ways and United Ways of Minnesota. Coffee with Congress forums occur throughout the year, and they tend to "pop up" on the schedule in response to the fast-paced, short notice nature of the Congressional calendar.

Those that live in Minnesota's 3rd Congressional district are particularly encouraged to participate; all are welcome.
