Greetings Everyone,


The 2014 state legislative session is almost here!  It will start on Tuesday February 25th.

Safe Passage for Children is proposing a bill with two provisions.  See a summary here.  


The legislature plans to get all the bills through the committees and onto the floor of the House and Senate in 3 ½ weeks, so we need to be ready to communicate our support for the bill.


The key events for volunteers will be:

1.     Training sessions to prep you for the session (see options below)

2.     Visits with your state Representative and Senator.

3.     Day on the Hill on Wednesday, March 5th.


Kathleen Kessler will schedule you for training.  Please email her at to let her know which training option you can attend.  If you choose a webinar we will send you an invitation when you select a date.


Kathleen will follow up shortly if she doesn’t hear from you.


Johnna O’Neill will be in touch to schedule your legislative visits and Day on the Hill.


As always, your active engagement will make a significant difference in the safety and well-being of Minnesota’s children.
