Business Partners Christa Anders and Laurie Davis, Minneapolis

“We are partners in Advance Consulting, a local public policy consulting firm whose mission is to work with clients to improve the lives of children and families.  We dedicate at least five percent of our annual income to nonprofit organizations in the community.  We give money to Parents United every year.  We support the critical work of Parents United because we believe deeply that public education is at the foundation of our democracy and that strong public education, which is high quality and truly accessible for all students, creates opportunities, helps people realize their full potential, and builds the vibrant and thriving communities that we want for ourselves and for our children.  We give support to Parents United because they share our vision and are passionate, dedicated, smart, and savvy.”
