Rapid Response Phonebank

March 28 at 6:00 pm9:00 pm

We believe in a Minnesota where each and every person is able to live in joy — lives that are fulfilling, stable, creative, and happy. Where success is defined by how much people and whole communities are able to live in joy. Right now, our communities are facing multiple attacks that violate our values and this vision for our state. From millions at risk of losing their health care coverage to local interference to anti-immigrant proposals to the destruction of our planet, we are ready to resist these attacks and build our movement because we believe in this vision.

Join us every Tuesday from 6-9 pm at the TakeAction office to make calls to activists across the state, mobilizing our communities to take a stand against whatever attack we are facing that week. We’ll track what’s moving, what’s needed, and make sure our time is used effectively.
