About the Event

The capitol can be an intimidating place. It's big, it's easy to get lost, and it's full of customs and rules and norms that seem... well... abnormal. So we're hosting an opportunity to come learn more about the legislative process from the people who know it best. 

This session is free and is being presented as part of Minnesota Council on Latino Affairs' "Latine Day at the Capitol." 

Pre-registration is highly recommended, so we can make sure to have enough space for everyone who wants to attend.

There is no food or drink provided, so if you want to eat or drink it's allowed, just bring your own.

Kids are welcome.

Wear whatever you like. 

We will talk a little about the building, but we won't have a tour. However, free 45 minute guided tours are led by the Minnesota Historical Society and are available throughtout the day. And, since the capitol IS the People's House, you're also welcome to wander around on your own. 

For parking information, see the Department of Administration Public Parking Page. The easiest will likely be metered street parking on the capitol grounds. For public transportation options, the Green Line has a stop right outside the capitol. 

Who is on the panel?

Because there are many, many people who have expertise at the capitol, we're not making a distinction between a "panel" and an "audience." Instead, we're conducting the Q&A as a roundtable -- we think that'll provide the best experience for all of the attendees. If you're curious, please join us! 

Why are you suggesting my question is "silly"? 

Often people classify their own question as silly, and use that descriptor as a reason not to ask it. But if you have a question, it's likely that others do too. So we're elevating the "silly" questions, and giving everybody a place to ask basic AND complicated questions without judgement. There should be no shame in obtaining information!
