Recognizing civic leadership in Minnesota
October 10, 2019
Save The Date!
For sixty-six years, Minnesotans from diverse backgrounds, political parties, and ideologies have gathered for an evening to recognize what makes our region unique: an enduring civic culture, innovative leadership, and a commitment to find common ground for the common good in Minnesota
We take the time to honor those whose work has inspired, challenged, and transformed the wider community. Recent honorees include former retired Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Alan Page; leader in business and education, Wheelock Whitney; medical innovator and civic mentor Dr. Glen Nelson; dedicated and courageous public servant, Susan Kimberly; and civil rights and equity champion Dr. Josie Johnson. At last year’s Civic Celebration, we continued this tradition by honoring business leader and community builder Richard Davis.
Join your fellow Minnesotans from across the political spectrum for an inspirational evening recognizing innovative civic leadership in Minnesota! Proceeds from the Civic Celebration support the Citizens League’s mission of empowering people to engage in civic life and public policy to make Minnesota a better place to live and work for everyone.
Registration opens soon! Save the date to join us on October 10!
