STUDENT DAY AT THE CAPITOL
Student Day at the Capitol 2020: Feb. 12 or Mar. 30 (students choose one)
Note: The March 30 Student Day has been canceled in accordance with government recommendations concerning the coronavirus outbreak.
MCCL's annual Student Day at the Capitol brings students to St. Paul for a day of pro-life education and political involvement.
The event, usually held in February or March each year, is a unique opportunity for students in grades 7-12 to learn about and participate in the political process. The day begins with educational sessions that cover abortion, current pro-life legislation, the legislative process, and more. In the afternoon, most students are able to meet with their own legislators and lobby them to support pro-life legislation. The students may also tour the Capitol and hear from pro-life elected officials.
Students may attend individually, with a youth group, or as a class trip. A nominal $10.00 suggested donation per person covers the cost of lunch. If cost is an issue for students or schools, contact our office for alternative arrangements. MCCL will provide adult supervision, so parents do not need to stay for the program.
