The legislature is talking big cuts, and the University of Minnesota is responding with this video:
Ten years ago I was 11, and the U received more state funding than it does now. Any more cuts and all of our educations will suffer. Why would legislators consider this move? Because they haven’t yet heard your calls swelling their offices. Why should they listen? Because divesting in Minnesota’s future should be off the table.
