Minnesota Dream Act celebration Friday, July 19

Join Minneapolis City leaders and staff, members of the Latino community, State legislators and education leaders in celebrating the enactment of the Prosperity Act (Minnesota Dream Act).

This year following a historic collaboration between the City of Minneapolis and the local Latino community, the Minnesota Legislature approved the Prosperity Act, which expands access to in-state tuition and state financial aid to all Minnesota students regardless of their immigration status. This act opens higher education opportunities to many Minneapolis residents and thousands of people across the state who did not have access before.
