Join the conversation about Minnesota's civic health!

On the eve of the Citizens League Annual Meeting, I'm honored by the invitation to take part in the ongoing conversation about Minnesota's civic health.

The "Minnesota Civic Health Index 2009," co-authored by Harry Boyte and Nan Skelton in partnership with the National Conference on Citizenship, is slated for release next Monday. Following the press conference earlier in the day, the public is invited to join in on a conversation reflecting on the report's findings in relation to their own experiences. See below for more details and to register - I look forward to our discussion!

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. Please join Harry Boyte, co-author of Minnesota Civic Health Index 2009, Bill Blazar of the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce, Gary Cunningham of Northwest Area Foundation, and Diane Tran of Grassroots Solutions 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.

Copies of Minnesota Civic Health Index 2009 will be available at the forum.

The report will be released earlier on November 2 at a press conference with Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, Senate Minority Leader Dave Senjem, David Smith of the National Conference on Citizenship, and Harry Boyte of the Center for Democracy and Citizenship.
