Join us for our February member meeting as we discuss one key way to build the resistance: building local power. This year, all 13 Minneapolis City Council seats and the mayor are up for election. The City Council makes key decisions that shape our city on everything from a $15 minimum wage to funding for the police. Building local power that unapologetically centers racial justice is key to making bold progress in the years to come. Join us to discuss how we're preparing for the 2017 city elections, the caucus process, and how to get involved.
After one month of Trump's attacks on our communities, we need our city to step up to play a leading role in the resistance. Join us for a rally and march to demand Minneapolis defend our communities and boldly create the future we deserve.
As Trump attacks sanctuary cities, Muslims, refugees, immigrants, and our already overpoliced communities, state legislators are rushing to take away cities' power to pass our own laws to become sanctuary cities or raise the minimum wage. We need Minneapolis to take a bold stand to protect our communities by expanding sanctuary protections for immigrants and refugees and passing a $15 minimum wage for all workers.
Minneapolis should be a city where no one feels threatened by police attacks or ICE raids; where families don't fear being forcibly separated by deportation or mass incarceration; where everyone earns enough to take care of their family; where no one lives in poverty. Let's make this vision a reality and create the city our communities deserve.
Join us to demand Minneapolis lead the resistance against Trump!
