The Next Minnesota Miracle

October 26, 2009

Minnesota comes out ahead on many measures of civic engagement when compared with other states, according to a recent report produced by the Center for Democracy and Citizenship in partnership with the National Conference on Citizenship.

If you’re in the Twin Cities, please join Harry Boyte, co-author of Minnesota Civic Health Index 2009, and others on Nov. 2 for a discussion on the state of Minnesota’s civic health and what we can and must do to move from civic activities to civic engagement grounded in the fabric of communities. Bill Blazar of the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce, Gary Cunningham of Northwest Area Foundation, and Diane Tran of Grassroots Solutions will offer their reactions to the report, which will be available at the forum.
