Duluth Community Forum

Minnesota

Join local residents who care about water at Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Duluth on February 3 for a community forum with lawmakers and other key stakeholders as we dive into the subject of clean water in Minnesota.

Water is a huge part of our state’s identity. One of the state’s most iconic bodies of water —the Mississippi River— faces real threats that affect all of us. The river supports a diverse array of wildlife and millions of people who rely on it as a source of drinking water and an economic engine.

We know we can address the challenges facing the river by investing in conservation. Now we need legislators to take action in the 2020 legislative session to fund on-the-ground projects that protect land, water, habitat and people. The reality is that they won’t do it unless their constituents speak up and ask them to take that action.

We need you to join us on February 3 because clean water depends on you. Come share your story, talk with our lawmakers and speak up for clean water in Minnesota.
