Hindsight from Minnesota 2020: Hindsight gives the run down on the news that jumps out at us on the issues that matter. Often times these stories show us how much further we need to go to have the progressive policy realized in Minnesota. Another thing we want to try here is opening up the discussion to everyone who wants to contribute. Commenting on our posts is highly encouraged, and we’ll join in as well. As always, be sure to check out our main site www.mn2020.org.

PROGRESSIVE GROUPS IN MINNESOTA:
The Minnesota Project is a nonprofit organization that connects people with policy to nurture collaborations that build strong local economies, vibrant communities and a healthy environment.
Our programs are focused on clean renewable energy and efficient use of energy; farm practice and policy that promote profitable farms that protect the environment; and the production and consumption of local and sustainably-produced foods.
The Minnesota Project works in ways that emphasize collaboration, community building, and capacity building. For over twenty-five years we have fostered local empowerment, bridged diverse interests, encouraged shared values, and initiated working dialogues that create positive action and policy.
