LGN Invited to Speak at Humphrey School of Public Affairs

LGN at the Humphrey School

LGN Government Relations team members, Amos Briggs and Jess Lindeen, were invited to speak with a graduate class at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota called “State Governing and Legislating: Working the Process.” The course is instructed by Briana Bierschbach who is a political reporter for the Star Tribune. 

This course aims to give students practical experience in government. Speakers visit the class each week to talk about a different aspect of working at the Capitol. LGN was invited to “lobby” day to share more about the important work we do on behalf of our clients. It was a great discussion with a class full of future leaders.

The Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota ranks among the country’s top professional public policy and planning schools, widely recognized for its success in advancing the common good through a comprehensive, world-class program. The school offers six distinctive master’s degrees, a doctoral degree, and five certificate programs that match students’ passion with the knowledge, skills, and experience needed to solve real-world challenges. We were honored to be invited as guests and are excited to see where the future leads these students.

LGN Sponsors Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity Gala

LGN was proud to sponsor Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity’s Black Tie and Hard Hat Gala this past weekend and clearly, LGNers Jess Lindeen, Amos Briggs, Kevin Matzek, and Eura Chang were thrilled to attend (photobooth & all!) We have the privilege of representing Twin Cities Habitat at the Capitol and supporting their work to meaningfully address Minnesota’s racial homeownership gap and advance Black homeownership. As part of this work, Twin Cities Habitat advocated for a new $100 million First Generation Down Payment Assistance Program that will begin this summer.
