|Citizens League’s Annual Community Gathering|
Through our engagement with communities in Minnesota, we strive to help people understand that public policy happens everywhere, and everyone has a role in decision-making.
Our events are organized around these goals, inviting a panel of different viewpoints to discuss policy issues that affect Minnesotans. We cover such topics as mental health, aging, disruptive protests, and water quality. Those in attendance can expect ample opportunity to voice their perspectives, questions, and ideas as well.

Join us for the Citizens League’s annual Civic Celebration, an evening to recognize unique leaders in Minnesota whose work has inspired, challenged, and transformed our communities.
Save the date! The 2023 Civic Celebration will be on Thursday, March 16, 2023. More details to come!
Citizens League Mind Openers are deep dives into policy topics that affect Minnesota and its citizens. The talks, over breakfast, are an opportunity for Citizens League members to learn and talk about a variety of different issues.
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.
Policy on Tap
The Citizens League is dedicated to robust conversations about policy. For our first season of Policy On Tap, we were Talking Trash.
Very few of us know what happens after we leave our bins at the curb, take our stuff to a thrift store, or throw something in a bin at a restaurant. And the answer often depends on where that action happens.
From food waste to science, recycling to secondhand goods, host Tom Weber was joined by experts, engineers, and journalists to discuss the things we throw away.

Policy and a Pint
For over a decade, we partnered with Minnesota Public Radio’s The Current to engage people in important conversations about public policy and issues in the news. Click below for an archive of these discussions.
