The Citizens League is a respected non-partisan, non-profit public policy organization with a 65-year history of bringing Minnesotans together to solve problems, create solutions, and engage on issues of importance. We are known for deliberately curating diverse points of view coming to the same table. We insist that people consider opposing points of view on their way to coming up with solutions.
Our events are organized with these philosophies and goals in mind. You will be sure to hear differing points of view on topics, and we will ask those in attendance to bring their questions, ideas and solutions to be considered.
And along the way, we will provide a lively and interesting crowd, appetizers and the chance to talk and learn over beverages of your choice. You will see strange bedfellows attending Citizens League events – and we like it that way.
Rub elbows with other politically interested Minnesotans, catch up with old friends, meet new and interesting people – and have a good time doing it – at our annual Civic Celebration!
EDTalks features two compelling 20-minute presentations by cutting-edge educators, youth advocates, journalists, artists, policy-makers and others, with ample time for conversation and networking.
This year’s Mind Opener programs have included discussions surrounding retaining professionals of color in the region, police training, and repairing Minnesota’s teacher licensure system.
Mind The Gap
Following our election series of 2016, the Voting Booth Chronicles, 2017 brings our new event series that we are calling Mind the Gap. Why Mind the Gap?
Policy And A Pint™
For over a decade, we have partnered with Minnesota Public Radio’s The Current to engage people in important conversations about public policy and issues in the news.
Our Workplace Policy Programs are offered to our Organization Members to educate and inform employees on the critical policy issues of the day. Minnesota leaders present and lead discussions on a number of timely topics.
