Join your Maplewood neighbors in a discussion to strengthen local democracy!

By Miriam Ziven, Grant Coordinator, Minnesota Community Assembly - Hamline University

At a time when the federal government and many state governments are polarized and often unable to act, local government is one of the only places where residents and community members
still can have a meaningful voice.

Too often, residents and community members feel like their voices aren’t being heard by decision-makers in Congress and in state legislatures. Join the movement for a more inclusive Minnesota.

Come together with members of your community to rethink local government, redefine what it means to be a citizen, and discuss how both can evolve for the betterment of the community.
Local government can be different. The Minnesota Community Assembly in Maplewood is a series of community gatherings that spurs participants to rethink civic connections, imagine how local government might be designed for the 21st century, and rebuild government to listen, understand, and act.

At the end of the assembly, participants will have created policy recommendations, for both residents and elected officials, identifying opportunities for local government to better serve their community. The assembly will take place in a local Maplewood venue for two days over the course of one weekend. If accepted to participate, each individual will receive $300.00 upon full completion of the assembly.

Hamline University professor David Schultz, and The Amherst H. Wilder Foundation, invite you to participate in the Minnesota Community Assembly.  All opinions, beliefs, and backgrounds are welcome. Assembly Dates: April 27th and 28th, 2018

Contact or call 651 523-2180 for any
questions in regards to the assembly you may have.
