Minnesota Character Council Vision Statement for the Children of Minnesota

As we start a new year with the legislature pondering how best to spend $17.6 billion in unallocated public monies, we might also think of what investments in social and human capitals come without great financial cost.

Along with my role at the Caux Round Table, I’m also the chair of the Minnesota Character Council (MCC).  The members of the MCC have drafted this statement on Minnesota’s hope – our children.  Investing in the emotional health and character development of children doesn’t cost much money, but it does cost us in taking time and making sure we care.

We ask that you consider sharing this statement with your networks and colleagues.

Please also let me know if you would like to help us get the message of care out and letting our kids know that they matter in all kinds of important ways.
