Topics to cover include:
- Brainstorming Big Wins for the Future: What should LSP propose to foster prosperous rural communities in Minnesota?
- Addressing the Rural Healthcare Crisis: How do we transform the current health care system to make it work for rural communities and put people over profits?
- LSP’s Vision: How did our food and agriculture system and rural communities get to where they are now? Where are we headed? What is our vision for the future and how do we get there?
- Planning for the 2018 Minnesota Legislative Session: Last session, LSP defeated legislation proposed by powerful corporate interests that would have significantly weakened rural rights, local control, and environmental review. LSP also secured $1.5 million in funding for Forever Green, and passed the Beginning Farmer Tax Credit. LSP was victorious last session and has been for 35+ years because members speak up, we organize, and we show up. What will this coming session look like?
