Census 2020

Calling Home

Minnesota’s 65+ population is increasing dramatically. As individuals, partners and families plan for life changes that are inevitable, we ask: What does home look like as we age? We’re here to help with the conversations and next steps as Minnesotans plan for the future.

Capitol Pathways

With the long-term goal of making our government truly representative of our communities, the program opens access to the Minnesota Capitol to the next generation of leaders of color. Through this program, interns build relationships with established Capitol leaders, gain exposure to various kinds of careers in policy, get real-world experience in career fields they would like to learn more about and build a strong professional resume in the process.

Events


The Citizens League hosts forums for civil discussion across Minnesota. Our event series includes events that are open to the public, member-only and workplace events to help inform and engage Minnesotans on important policy and civic leadership discussions.
