BelieveResist: Action Alert
|We’re almost there – 100 days of BelieveResist. And, I can tell you, I’m ready to keep going. Who’s with me?
In the coming month, you’ll be hearing a lot more from our team working hard in the final sprint of the legislative session, and a little less from me. But don’t worry, the next iteration of this email is coming your way soon.
Right now, we’re in our Week of Action with our partners at Minnesotans for a Fair Economy. Join us from Saturday through Tuesday to #BelieveResist and re-energize ourselves for the work ahead. We’ll be standing in solidarity with CTUL, Neighborhoods Organizing for Change (NOC), SEIU, Saint Paul Federation of Teachers, MN350, Mesa Latina, and many others. Here are the top five actions you should be at to mark 100 days of #BelieveResist:
People’s Climate Marches
Join us and thousands of others across the country this Saturday at the People’s Climate March. Want to go to DC? Get tickets here. In Duluth or the Twin Cities? Check out these links for more information on where and when to meet up with the march.
Solidarity with Striking Workers
Monday we’ve got opportunities to stand in solidarity with striking workers and CTUL! All workers are on strike to demand a $15 minimum wage and the right to form a union. Join us in the morning to march with striking retail janitors at Home Depot and in the afternoon with striking fast food workers.
May 1st Marches
There are many to choose from! Take your pick: Somos Minnesota Immigrant and Refugee March (daytime), Resist from Day One March (from afternoon on), Student March, Teacher’s Action. No excuses not to be at this one!
Join us for a conversation with our Executive Director, Dan McGrath, about how we turn the tide toward a more progressive state. See you from 6-7:30 pm on May 1st. Make sure you sign-up to get all the details!
Calling everyone who either gives care or needs care
News flash – that’s all of us. Join us as we dig into a conversation about what transforming the care economy would mean for us. We’ll watch a documentary and share stories in Willmar next Wednesday, May 3rd.
We know that our fear and cynicism will not build the movement we need, our creativity and organizing will.
Together in La Lucha,
