A Survey Invitation from Rep. Liz Olson:

The Minnesota Values Project (MVP) brings legislators, organizations and Minnesotans together to focus on a two year plan to build our shared capacity around developing our shared narrative and working together on in-district field efforts. The Minnesota Values Project (MVP) offers ideas for a new direction that makes Minnesota a better place for everyone.

Minnesotans care deeply about our state and want to see one another succeed. Working together, we can strengthen our communities by improving education opportunities, making affordable healthcare a reality, and increasing economic prosperity for all Minnesotans.

Our shared Minnesota Values bring us together and can serve as a guide for how we move forward — and how we make Minnesota work better for all of us.

Our goal is to create a legislative agenda rooted in broad, shared values. Far too often we focus on the policy, rather than the values and narrative that the policy is designed to address. To do this, it is important that we hear from your organization and its membership.

We also ask that your share this additional survey so that we can hear from more Minnesotans on what they value and the direction they want to see our state go:


Thank you for your participation and time! Your input is essential to making MVP a success!
