Join the Citizens League, Center of the American Experiment, Growth and Justice,Humphrey School of Public Affairs and the Caux Roundtable as we celebrate enduring legacies of leadership in Minnesota by honoring Governor Al Quie (Minnesota Governor 1978-1982 and GOP Member of Congress 1958-1979) and Congressman Don Fraser (DFL Member of Congress 1963-1979 and Minneapolis Mayor 1980-1994).
Governor Quie and Congressman Fraser are leaders who played transformational roles in their time. How was their influence felt by those who followed and what can we learn from their leadership? Those who were mentored and inspired by these men will tell us how their legacies last even today and how they are working to inspire this same contagious civic leadership with future generations serving Minnesota. These two uncommon men share a common passion for Minnesota, the nation, and a better world.
Our speakers include Sondra Samuels, President and CEO of the Northside Achievement Zone; Sharon Sayles Belton, Vice President of Community Relations and Government Affairs at Thomson Reuters and former Mayor of Minneapolis 1994-2001; Eric Magnuson, partner at Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi and former Chief Justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court 2008-2010; and Lois West Duffy, former press secretary to U.S. Senator David Durenberger and former public relations director, Prison Fellowship USA.
