Unity Summit/Political Conference

In 2018, Education Minnesota re-shaped our election work -- focusing on getting out the vote at the worksite level.

Voting is still a high priority in 2020. And through our union, we have the power win generational change for public education in Minnesota.

To do that, we must: 

1. Get out 100 percent of the educator vote for public education on Nov. 3, 2020.
2. Collectively engage at least 33,000 parents and community voters in the election and beyond.
3. Unite our co-workers and communities in a statewide movement for full funding of public education in the spring of 2021.

To reach these goals, we need educators like you at the forefront of this movement.

The Education Minnesota 2020-21 Unity Summit is a place for educators to learn about the tools they'll need to develop worksite teams to build unity around electing pro-public education candidates in the 2020 election and fight for fully funding schools in the 2021 legislative session.

The summit will also feature a public meeting with key elected officials.
