Pause, breathe, and lean into some hopeful lessons: Join Convergence Magazine and The Forge for a conversation with movement organizers and elected leaders from the Minnesota Values Project (MVP). When Minnesota’s historic legislative session wrapped up in May, reporters around the country were stunned by the number of progressive victories: paid family leave, expanded voting rights, greater healthcare access, criminal justice reforms, and more. Was this a “Minnesota Miracle?” The panelists demystify these victories, walking us through their decade-long efforts to build governing power by developing relationships of trust and accountability, strengthening infrastructure, supporting grassroots organizing, and aligning around a shared agenda.

Tune in to hear from:

The conversation is moderated by Deepak Pateriya, a long-time community and labor organizer and contributor to both Convergence Magazine and The Forge.
