DAY AT THE CAPITOL 2023
Wednesday, March 1, 2023 from 9:15 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Join us for Day at the Capitol 2023 where you can advocate for increased funding for education and other issues that matter to you. Your legislators need to hear from you about the Minnesota State Grant program and other causes that are important to you.
What happens on Day at the Capitol?
You’ll attend a Minnesota State Grant advocacy and lobbying training with student advocates from Augsburg and other Minnesota private colleges. Then you’ll meet with legislators (we’ll make appointments for you in advance) and have lunch at the Capitol. The Minnesota Private College Council will host a Q&A session with public policy experts and policymakers and will provide everything you need to be a successful advocate.
We will take the light rail from campus to and from the Capitol together. We will also meet the night before, on Tuesday, February 28, to eat pizza, meet other students from Augsburg, and to answer questions you might have about civic engagement and how to best advocate for your priorities.
Register by visiting the Minnesota Private College Council website: https://www.mnprivatecolleges.org/news-events/events/day-capitol
When you register and attend, you will be entered into an Augsburg raffle to win one of two $50 gift cards to Afro Deli!
