Lobby day: Fighting for equity in education
February 9, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
The most effective advocates for public schools in Minnesota are the front-line educators who guide our students toward successful lives every day, which is why Education Minnesota has made it easier than ever for members to participate in lobby days.Register Today!
Due to the pandemic, all lobby days for the 2021 Legislature will be held virtually via Zoom.
Issue Lobby Days
This year, we’re offering several issue-based lobby days, in addition to local lobby days, which are open to all active members. At these one-hour events, Education Minnesota staff will present current legislation and research on various topics, and educators like you from across the state will have an opportunity to share your thoughts and experience with legislators.
