What you can do: Let others know
Lots of people care about college students affording college, but they may not know how they can get current information and especially make a difference. Help out by raising the issue with friends and family members — especially those in Minnesota, since that’s where our efforts are focused.
- Sending an email to college students, family members and friends — asking them to check out our website (mnstudentaid.org) and consider signing up as a supporter.
- Liking us on Facebook
- Sharing your own thoughts about need-based aid.
It is a critical time to get more people involved; there’s $80 million on the line, thanks to governor Dayton’s budget proposal. We need people who support keeping college affordable to speak up.
