Join us for a community environmental forum, co-hosted by Fresh Energy, for constituents of Senator Dick Cohen and Representative Erin Murphy and Representative Dave Pinto.

Please join the discussion! Hear from your neighbors about the major environmental issues at the Capitol. Share your priorities for protecting Minnesota’s lakes, rivers, land, air, and great outdoors!
