  • “The MAPL program helped me become the advocate and organizer I am for economic justice today. I am proud of the work I’ve done to call for a more economically just society, and I’m thankful for the MAPL program that helped me learn how to do it.” ~ Atom Robinson, cohort 7

  • “MAPL continues to open new doors for me. People I work with at the Capitol are graduates or know of the program. The teachers and students are an invaluable network. On top of that, the education and training is top notch. For someone considering MAPL: “There are lots of great policy ideas. If you are interested in learning how to make them reality - MAPL is the only place to be.”
    ~ Frank Jaskulke, cohort 8

  • “In MAPL, I gained the knowledge of broader social justice movements through discussion, materials, and lectures. The leaders that I met, and the concepts that we discussed have shaped my abilities to effectively advocate.”
    ~ Leah Solo, cohort 11

  • “MAPL draws in advocates and leaders on fire about creating change. This creates dynamic classroom dialogue and learning. Every moment at MAPL offers the best resources, from the books and research to the faculty and guest speakers. For me, it was unbelievable that I could be studying everything I ever wanted to know. Where else is ‘Rules for Radicals’ an assigned text?”
    ~LeAnn Littlewolf, cohort 9

  • "I stumbled across MAPL in my last semester of my Undergrad and truly feel that it was destiny. MAPL has taught me so much and catered to a hands-on learning environment that has allowed me to apply what I learn to many different fields of work I am involved with. MAPL truly fosters an on-going learning and growing family that is both challenging and supportive." ~ Amy Lee, cohort 15

  • MAPL showed me how the work of social change gets done. Every assignment was a challenge that brought me closer to the leader I want to be.
    ~Johanna Grefsrud, cohort 15
