Lead the Resistance: Minneapolis Against Trump

February 27 at 5:00 pm8:00 pm

Organized by Neighborhoods Organizing for Change and 15 Now Minnesota.

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!

Rapid Response Phonebank

February 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.

The Art of Resistance

March 3 at 3:00 pmMarch 4 at 2:00 am

Art evokes emotion and subjective interpretation of political issues in ways that the mainstream news and media no longer does. For that reason, we must continue to create art that challenges everything, and leads everyone to think deeply about the current state of our world. The Art of Resistance is a monthly community gathering for creation, dialogue and justice. Each month we will feature various works from local artists, facilitate discussion and build our resistance through art.

Immigration & Refugee Panel II

March 5 at 1:00 pm2:30 pm

“Build a wall.” “Register Muslims.” “Deport criminals.” “Refuse more refugees.”

These are the headlines that have dominated recent public discourse. But for immigrants and refugees residing in the U.S., these issues are just the most recent developments in a long struggle to live freely in a nation that has yet to provide liberty and justice for all.

As part of First Universalist’s Sanctuary and Resistance movement, we invite you to listen and learn from some of our immigrant and refugee neighbors as they discuss their lived realities in our community and in our country.
