We're excited to host, along with a dozen other early childhood organizations, a Candidate Conversation on Minnesota’s Youngest Children with candidates for Governor on Thursday, September 27 at the Minnesota Children’s Museum.  

First District Congressman Tim Walz and Hennepin County Commissioner Jeff Johnson are invited to participate. The focus of the forum is children prenatal through age five, their families, and the professionals who support them.

Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. and the forum will begin at 6:30 p.m. We encourage you to attend with your family. A room will be available for those wanting a separate space to watch the event. The Museum exhibits will not be open.

Zero Weeks Film Showing

You're invited to a Minneapolis screening of Zero Weeks - a powerful film about the importance of paid family leave. Three CARE Public Policy Fellow alumni, in partnership with Rep. Frank Hornstein, Minnesotans for Paid Family Leave, ISAIAH, and others, worked together to bring this showing to Minneapolis.

Admission is free and open to the public! RSVP online is highly encouraged and appreciated, but everyone is welcome to walk into the screening and attend.

Immediately following the film, we will have a community discussion and hear from leaders in the fight for paid family here in Minnesota.
