NEW REGULAR WMM EVENT.

Welcome to YOUR house! The state capitol is where the officials YOU elected work for YOU, representing YOU and YOUR concerns as they draft, debate and vote on legislation that will affect YOUR life. It may feel like they’re the ones with the power – but they’re beholden to YOU.

Let's make sure they're doing what YOU put them there to do. Let's get ready to take some legislative action in 2019!

Join us for a special WMM tour to help YOU get Comfortable at the Capitol. Learn how things work at the MN State Capitol and find out some of the things YOU can do to have an impact on what bills get passed this session.

Tour the State Capitol building, the House of Representatives and Senate building. Visit your state representative's and senator's offices and introduce yourself to their legislative assistant. Check out the places to sit, observe and interact with our elected officials. Find out how to watch a floor session, attend a committee hearing, call your legislator from the House or Senate Chambers, and where to access the libraries, grab a bite to eat and temporarily park your coat.

Your tour guide will be Kathy Hollander, a past volunteer citizen lobbyist who loves hanging around at the Capitol and has a passion for legislative action.

Wear your walking shoes, please!  

The tour is free, but registration is required. Please register here. There’s a limit of 18 people this time!

Once you register, you will receive more information plus an event reminder.

Please join us as we learn how to hold our elected officials to account and make an impact down at the MN State Capitol.
