  Speaker List

In our brief history, mnpACT! has been honored to host many prominent Minnesotans including writers, media personalities, political activists and organizers, current office holders, and many, many candidates - committed, passionate individuals seeking to serve the citizens of Minnesota, locally, on the national stage, and everywhere in between.

We acknowledge and appreciate their commitment to public service, as well as their generosity with their time, knowledge, talent and skills. We have learned much from them and are energized, inspired, and motivated by their dedication.
