The Minnesota Legislative session starts on Tuesday, January 3rd. LWV Minnesota will send Action Alerts to all members, as well as interested non-members, regarding important issues being discussed in the legislature. It’s easy to use the Action Alerts to let your state legislators know what you care about. Please help by using this tool to let your legislators know what you are thinking. Your voice does matter! When state legislators hear the same message from more than three or four people in their district, they pay attention.

Non-members may sign up for Action Alerts here:
