Bridging The Partisan Divide

On the eve of the 2006 Legislative Session, the University of Minnesota Law School hosted a Citizens League forum called Bridging the Partisan Divide. This event brought students and community members together for an intergenerational, bi-partisan conversation about the importance of civility and working across party lines. The panel included former Secretary of State Joan Growe (DFL), former Senate Minority Leader Duane Benson (R), State Representative Laura Brod (R), and State Representative Steve Simon (DFL). Citizens League Board member Nate Garvis, Vice President of Government Affairs at Target Corporation, moderated the discussion.
