RELEASE: Page Amendment Partners Anticipate Legislative Momentum for Week of Action
The amendment has bipartisan, statewide support.
ST. PAUL, MINN. – The Page Amendment, a statewide effort to provide a civil right to quality public education, is announcing its Week of Action this week, and the diverse list of Page Partners, the individuals and organizations in support of the legislation, is growing.
Week of Action runs March 22 – 26 and is the campaign’s official statewide education and advocacy week, meant for Minnesotans to learn more about the amendment through a series of educational events, and then connect with local lawmakers and share why they support quality public education for all Minnesotans. Numerous organizations will take part, including the Minneapolis Federal Reserve, Minnesota Parent Union, Northside Achievement Zone, and more.
“The Page Amendment was created in partnership with parents, educators, student advocates, and education, government, and business leaders and organizations. Each Page Partner has a vested interest in ensuring Minnesota children are reaching their fullest potential,” said Nevada Littlewolf, executive director and campaign manager. “We wouldn’t be able to have a Week of Action without the numerous individuals and organizations that we work with. We are excited for a week of education and advocacy with this coalition.”
The Page Amendment gained new partners this week, including Minnesota Africans United, an organization serving African immigrants to create awareness and increase access to resources for African communities, and Bridgemakers, a youth-led grassroots organization fighting for racial equity in Minnesota.
Our Children MN is an organization working to inform Minnesotans of the state’s education gaps and to build support to pass the Page Amendment. Learn more about the Page Amendment at https://ourchildrenmn.com/.
