Thank you for visiting MinnCAN’s website.

From 2011 to 2015, MinnCAN worked to advocate for a high-quality education for all Minnesota kids in partnership with passionate, engaged leaders across the state. We accomplished so much together and are proud of the incredible growth in the local education advocacy ecosystem.

MinnCAN has taken a step back in operations and advocacy, but we remain invested in the success of this movement to change what’s possible for Minnesota students. In this spirit of open advocacy, we will continue to keep our website available to other education advocates as a resource of how we have approached research, communication, media engagement and community collaboration in our advocacy work.

Please explore our site, our research, reports and community blog, and reach out to our national office at or connect with us on Facebook and Twitter with any questions you may have.

Vallay Varro was a founding state executive director. She now serves as the president of 50CAN.
