About The Event:

Joyce Preschool is pleased to announce Keynote Speaker, John C. Keller, Chief Deputy Attorney General.

John Keller has served as Minnesota’s Chief Deputy Attorney General since February 2019. He serves as a key leadership advisor to the Attorney General; oversees the Office’s 130+ attorneys, deputies, and managers; helps carry out the priorities of the Office; and strengthens partnerships with other state agencies and the Governor’s office. Before joining the Attorney General’s Office, Keller was the Executive Director of the Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota, a leading provider of free, high-quality, and comprehensive immigration representation, policy, and education services for low-income immigrants and refugees. Over the last 20 years, Keller has worked with federal, state, and local governments on numerous legal and policy issues that intersect due process, immigration, health care, civil society, public safety, criminal law, and public health.

Diversity in the legal field depends on a diverse pipeline of prepared, talented students. Success means not only passing the bar exam, but achieving the requisite college, high-school, and elementary school milestones — all of which depend on the core foundation of being ready for school upon entry.

The Barristers’ Breakfast brings together members of the greater MSP legal community to support children at a critical point in their development. Past attendees have mingled and heard from noted speakers such as Senator Amy Klobuchar, Valerie M. Jensen, Representative Keith Ellison, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges, Senator Patricia Torres Ray, Judge Peter Reyes, Judge Isabel Gomez, State Representative Carlos Mariani, State Senator Melisa Franzen, and former Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak.
