Transportation Day of Action at the State Capitol

On February 12, join TLC and Move MN allies for a Transportation Day of Action! The main event begins at 2:00 PM at the Armory (600 Cedar Street, Saint Paul). Lt. Governor Tina Smith, Sen. Scott Dibble, and other leaders will share legislative updates and a snapshot of plans for the session. At 3:30 PM supporters will march from the Armory to the State Capitol to deliver our 10,000 postcards to lawmakers—reminding them that Minnesotans support long-term investment in all modes statewide. If you can only join us for part of Transportation Day, please make this 2:00 event and postcard delivery your top priority.

We also encourage you to meet with your legislators on Transportation Day. Please register so we can help determine your Senator and Representative.

TLC can help arrange a time or pull your legislator off the floor for a brief meeting on Feb. 12, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Check the legislator meeting option below if you’re interested! Registering early will give us the best chance to set a meeting with your legislator.

Related activities will be happening throughout the day leading up to the 2:00 event. Join TLC for all or part of the action, including:

  • Green Line Action Train, 9 AM, Raymond Ave. Station. Hop on the Green Line with TLC staff and allies and show your support for transit funding on the way to the Armory.
  • Transit Press Conference, 9:30 AM, near Capitol/Rice St. Station. Transit riders from the metro and Greater Minnesota will speak up for more investments in bus and rail. Attend to show your support.
  • Advocate Trainings, 9-11:30 AM, Minnesota Armory. A quick training from Move MN staff will help you prepare to meet with your legislators. Get your transportation funding questions answered and connect with other advocates. Move MN materials and refreshments will be provided.
  • Informal Lunch, 11:30-1:30 PM, MnDOT Cafeteria. Eat and network with TLC and Move MN supporters. Brown-bag or purchase your meal in the Transportation Building cafeteria on State Capitol grounds. Move MN buttons and materials will be available.
