Vote on Resolution on Immigrant Children, Youth, and Families


In the fall of 2018, the MPHA Health Equity Committee drafted a resolution on the separation of immigrant children from their families by the US government. In order to assure a timely vote on this issue, the MPHA Governing Council is asking members to review the draft resolution and vote via email. All current MPHA members should have received a Google Form requesting that they vote yes or no to approve the resolution. According to our bylaws, an 8% quorum is required to consider the vote valid. So please: review and vote!


All current members of MPHA, please review the Resolution on Immigrant Children, Youth, and Families, and respond to the vote request you received via email.



MPHA Policy Resolution Process


All members of Minnesota Public Health Association are encouraged to develop policy resolutions for consideration by the Policy & Advocacy Committee. 


Before you start, please review this sample resolution to understand the format we use for resolutions. 


Also, please check the resolution handbook to see if we have an existing resolution on the topic. If so, consider whether the existing resolution can simply be updated to reflect current circumstances. 


If you decide you would like to draft or update a resolution, email the Policy & Advocacy Committee at policy@mpha.net to inform the co-chairs. 

  1. Once you've drafted your resolution, the Policy & Advocacy Committee will review. 
  2. Then you will send your resolution to be reviewed by external reviewers.
  3. Then the Governing Council will review.
  4. Finally, the full membership will review (resolution posted on this website at least 15 days prior to the Annual Meeting) and vote to approve the resolution at the Annual Meeting, or if the resolution is time-sensitive, an email vote can be arranged.
If you have questions at any time, reach out to Policy & Advocacy Committee Co-Chairs at policy@mpha.net.
