As an advocate for MPR, when your action is needed, you will receive an email from Minnesotans for MPR. In this email, MPR's Public Strategy Department will provide you with contact information, background information and simple instructions that you need to advocate effectively. Email requests will typically ask you to contact your appointed or elected representatives by writing an email, making a phone call, or sending a letter. By responding to our requests, you will be acting on behalf of your community, expressing support or showing concern to further inform your appointed or elected representatives.
As part of our network of advocates, we will keep you informed of news and events that may impact MPR's programming and services. For these updates, follow us on our Facebook Fan Page. We also hope that you will call or email us with your ideas, feedback, and suggestions.
Minnesotans for MPR is an initiative of MPR's Public Affairs & Government Relations Department. Contact Managing Director, Lisa Radzak, with questions, suggestions, or updates on issues and events relative to your community.
