Thanks to you, hope is on the move across Minnesota
6 cities. 1 day. Nearly 1,000 Minnesotans.
On Saturday, nearly a thousand Minnesotans gathered at six locations across the state for our Annual Meeting – St. Paul, Duluth, St. Cloud, Northfield, Grand Rapids and Willmar. Together, we launched a set of work geared toward realizing our vision of a Minnesota where all can thrive and live in joy.
It was a statewide explosion of action. We had marches, rallies, banner-drops, and conversations with elected officials about our vision and mutual accountability. There were new faces in the room across the state. And hundreds of people committed to taking continuous action with us. These may be challenging times, but the movement to resist and create a better future, thanks to you, is growing.
TakeAction Minnesota members raised over $12,000 on Saturday – if you already contributed, THANK YOU! If you aren’t already a member of TakeAction, we want you to join us. Contribute $20 TODAY to join– your membership contribution means that we can powerfully fight for quality, affordable health care, progressive elected officials, statewide paid sick and safe time, climate justice, and more.
Our goal is to raise $15,000 by Friday.
As a member of TakeAction Minnesota, you help fund the resistance against Trump and the people-powered movement and organizing our state needs now. Join us TODAY. Here’s what happened across the state on Saturday.
Over 500 people came together in St. Paul to take action on health care, Justice4All, corporate overreach, and mutual accountability with elected officials — hundreds of Minnesotans met in small groups with 35 candidates and elected officials to discuss power and accountability between people and elected leaders.
Meanwhile, TakeAction leaders in Northfield asked “What would a joyful community look like?” and 60 participants dropped a banner and marched down Division Street.
In Grand Rapids, 65 participants built new connections and used the time to plan a bigger town hall meeting.
Nearly 100 Duluthians took action to build support for paid sick and safe time for all workers.
In Willmar, 45 people participated in a powerful training to help us talk with people who are different from us: this sort of conversation couldn’t be more important in the current moment.
And in St. Cloud, more than 80 people agreed that our resistance will be a marathon, not a sprint. Days before the Affordable Care Act repeal goes to the House Floor, dozens of Congressman Emmer’s committed to taking action with us.
Hope is on the move across Minnesota, and so is the resistance. We are so grateful that you joined us this Saturday. You’re now part of a growing movement. We can and will fight for the Minnesota we need.
If you didn’t get a chance on Saturday, become a TakeAction member TODAY by giving $20 or more. Our members are the glue that holds our work together, because we know we can count on your support – no matter what we face, and no matter who is President.
We’ll be in touch with you soon. Thank you for joining us on Saturday to say a better world is still possible.
