We need your help to move the Girl Scout Bill across the finish line to help bring Girl Scouts to as many Minnesota girls as possible. To support you in this process, we've outlined below how you can help:

The Girl Scout Bill Basics

The Girl Scout Bill was introduced in January and is officially known as SF 400 in the Senate and HF 292 in the House of Representatives. The Girl Scout Bill seeks state funding to help make Girl Scouts accessible to ALL girls through the Girl Scouts ConnectZ program.

Learn More About the Bill

Reach Out to Your Legislator

Contact your legislator and ask them to help us secure a hearing on the Girl Scout Bill. The more support we have, the easier it will be to get our hearing scheduled!

  1. Find your legislator.
  2. Contact your MN Senate and House representatives through email or call their office.
  3. Ask your legislators to reach out to the Chairs of the Education Finance Committees to request a hearing on the Girl Scout Bill and include funding in the Education Finance Bill.
  4. Finally, reach out to the Chairs of the Education Finance Committees directly to request a hearing on the Girl Scout Bill and to include funding in the Education Finance Bill for our bill.

Not sure what to say? Here’s an example email and phone script to get you started!

Request a Meeting

Contact your Minnesota Senate and House representatives to request a meeting.

We’ve created a quick, 20-minute training that will help get you ready for your legislative meeting.

The training will walk you through everything you need to know to meet with your legislator—like what’s in the Girl Scout Bill, telling your Girl Scout story, how to schedule a meeting, and even what a meeting looks like!

Reach Out on Social Media

Use your phone and tag your legislator on social media to ask for their support! If you reach out on social media, be sure to use hashtags #MNleg, #GIRLagenda, and tag us @GirlScoutsRV.

Tell Us How the Meeting Went

We want to hear how it went and what your legislator thought about the bill! Girls who meet with their legislator and report back to Girl Scouts River Valleys will earn the exclusive (And free!) G.I.R.L.s in Session patch.
