Get to know the candidates ~ Hear their positions

Ask your questions

Ahead of the November 3rd elections, create the opportunity for Catholics in your legislative district to form their consciences and faithfully inform their vote. Host a candidate town hall!

Across Minnesota, each seat in the State House and State Senate are up for election. As Catholics, we must learn candidates’ positions on policies and laws so that we can uphold life and human dignity at the voting booth. We must also bring the light of Christ into the public sphere by letting candidates know that supporting life and dignity is a top priority of the Catholic community.

Here you will find everything you need to plan and promote a candidate town hall at your parish.
