The LPMN made another outreach appearance in August, returning to the annual Vans Warped Tour music festival in Shakopee. An event featuring punk rock, thrash metal, and other alternative genres, the Vans Warped Tour attracted fans from throughout Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Volunteers had the opportunity to connect with many who already agree with our steadfast support for the freedom of self-expression and opposition to censorship.
The LPMN's affiliate, Outright Libertarians, returned again this year to the Gay Pride festival at Loring Park, Minneapolis, in June. It was an opportunity for libertarians to stand in support of the GLBT community and for everyone's freedom to associate with others of their choice, without restriction from government.
Constitutional Candidates is a television show hosted by Sue Jeffers which interviews candidates from all parties. Although it's not focused on libertarianism, she is willing to interview candidates from minor parties.
It appears regularly in the following areas:
Valley Access Area based in Stillwater: Wednesdays at 1:00pm and 7:00pm, Thursdays at 9:00pm
Minneapolis: Tuesdays at 5:30pm
St. Paul: Fridays at 6:00pm, Saturdays at 1:00am and 11:00am
