Nellie Stone Johnson Statue at Capitol

Support Labor and Civil Rights Leader Statue at the MN Capitol

We have the opportunity to permanently remind Capitol visitors, including school children, of the important role labor has played and continues to play in Minnesota.
The Legislature and the Governor authorized placing a statue of Nellie Stone Johnson, a nationally-renowned labor and civil rights leader (homegrown in MN), in a prominent spot inside of the MN State Capitol. We have to raise the matching funds for the first statue in our Capitol recognizing Nellie Stone Johnson's legacy of firsts:
The first prominent labor leader
The first Minnesota-born African American civil rights leader
The first woman activist/leader
The first education leader
We are almost to the goal!! We have a little more than $9000 left of the $110,000 fundraising goal to put this art into action. Will you support Nellie's legacy by contributing today? All donations are welcome!
Thank you for your support as we work to make history come alive for current and future generations.
