Tell the MN Leg About the Impact of Walker|West

We need your help tell the MN Legislature about Walker|West

Walker|West could receive up to $5.4M through one time appropriation bills SF0674 (MN State Senate) and HF0869 (MN House) to use as a capital investment for our new facility. Securing funding for a new site is the cornerstone of our current capital campaign. The bill is likely to be voted on in February.

We could use your support to let the MN Legislature know about the healing power of music and the Walker|West Mission. Here’s what you can do:

When you have a moment give them a call, or send an email to tell them why you support Walker|West!

Talking points: Using your voice to tell the story of Walker|West’s Impact

Here’s why Walker|West is a great candidate for this capital investment

We want to make sure legislators hear about how our 35 year-old, culturally rooted and responsive community music school is doing the work to bring enrichment, healing, and academic support to our community through the power of music. 

With our strategic direction and capital campaign, we’re committed to youth music education access and building more community centered space for wider and deeper connection. As a MN Regional Cultural Treasure, we are engaging students and families close by (with lessons, and school residencies), around the nation, and even internationally (with virtual instruction, concerts, and other community partnerships)! 

We have the experience, expertise, and enthusiasm to continue bringing the benefits of music education to K-12 students and students of all ages –from infants to elders.
