Thriving by Design - Rural & Urban Together 

Growth & Justice in partnership with OneMN.org is organizing a process -- Thriving by Design – Rural & Urban Together -- to create a statewide comprehensive policy agenda and socioeconomic contract – the One Minnesota Equity Blueprint - for achieving rural-urban and racial economic equity and inclusive growth.
To kick off the launch, they're co-hosting a statewide convening in Granite Falls, MN from June 27-29, 2018, and are seeking participants to attend as Equity Blueprint delegates, from each State Senate district and the 11 Native Nations. Delegates will represent the diverse Minnesota of the future and collectively shape the One Minnesota Equity Blueprint.
No prior policy experience necessary; the Thriving by Design team wants the delegation to represent all Minnesotans! Delegates will attend the statewide convening in June and then help host follow-up community meetings later in 2018 to gather more input on the draft Equity Blueprint. General participants are most welcome to attend the Granite Falls event, too, even if you cannot commit to hosting follow-up community meetings. A detailed overview of Thriving by Design – Rural & Urban Together can be found online here.  Please feel free to share with your networks.
Here is a link to the Equity Blueprint delegate application and general conference registration. For more information, contact Sarah Leistico at sarah@growthandjustice.org or call 651-917-6037.
