MCF All-Member Call: Voting and Civic Engagement in Uncertain Times

Thursday, May 21, 2020 10:00am - 11:00am CDT

In just 6 months, Americans will go to the polls to elect a new president. In the coming months, many of the institutions of the American electoral process will be tested, modified and reinvented. Join Minnesota’s Secretary of State, Steve Simon, to engage in a conversation about the electoral process during the COVID-19 pandemic. How is the State thinking about this year’s voting process in terms of security, health, equity and civil discourse? Bring your questions about how Minnesota’s nonprofit and philanthropic sectors can engage our communities, mobilize voters, and promote democracy in times of COVID-19.

Secretary of State Steve Simon was sworn into office in January 2015. As Minnesota’s chief elections administrator, he partners with local officials to organize elections. He also oversees services for Minnesota businesses and nonprofits, and administers the state’s “Safe at Home” program for people whose personal safety is at risk, often due to physical abuse or threats.

Bring your questions and ideas to share. This is an MCF-members only event, co-hosted with the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits. Call-in details will be in your confirmation email.
