Ignite Afterschool is coordinating with our network partners to organize days where afterschool stakeholders can get together, get fired up, and head to the State Capitol to speak with their legislators about the power of afterschool and the importance of funding afterschool programs through the Afterschool Community Learning bill. Here are the opportunities to speak with your legislators:
- The Minnesota Alliance of YMCAs welcomes all Ignite Afterschool advocates to join them for their YMCA Day at the Capitol on March 10th. Register, view full details, and schedule legislator meetings here.
- Ignite Afterschool and several of our network partners are hosting the 2015 Youth Day at the Capitol on March 13th. Join us for a prep session, meetings with legislators, and the Minnesota Youth Council Committee’s first hearing. Register, view full details, and schedule legislator meetings here.
- If you can’t make either day, click here for a step-by-step guide to schedule meetings with your local legislators whenever works for you.
We look forward to seeing you there!
