Happy Thanksgiving! Thankful for your support

There is delicious food to be eaten, football to be watched, and special time with family and friends to be enjoyed, so this will be short and sweet.

I want to express my gratitude to our donors and readers for helping American Experiment continue to generate change in Minnesota. Because of your support, I can keep fighting for our students and their education through research, writing, and testifying before policymakers and state leaders.

From the personal emails and phone calls to even in-person office visits, along with monetary contributions, your interest in American Experiment’s mission energizes us to keep going. To keep delivering sound, practical policy solutions. To keep combating harmful policy agendas. To keep accomplishing astonishing growth.

Here’s to you, and to a wonderful Thanksgiving for you and your family!

A Proclamation of Thanksgiving

“I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States…to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility and Union.”

President Abraham Lincoln, October 3, 1863
