On January 21st, 2017 one hundred thousand Minnesotans stood shoulder to shoulder in the cold of winter to declare Women's Rights Are Human Rights. As one of the largest rallies in Twin Cities history, the message was clear: We are better together. And thus Women's March Minnesota continues their grassroots efforts, building on the principals of Equality, Social Justice and Human Rights.

Home stretch - MN legislative session ends tonight at midnight, 5/22 - please tweet, email or call Governor Dayton and your MN legislative representatives to support those bills and funding issues most important to you - today's the day! See the enclosed list of the most important issues on the table.
With just 3 days left until the end of the MN legislative session, and Republicans proposing massive tax cuts to undercut our state programs, please take a minute to call Governor Dayton to show your support for vetoes on bills that do not support clean budget bills to fully fund state services for K-12 and higher education, health & human services, state government, public safety and the environment.
Then, keep it up with quick calls to the MN Majority Leaders of the MN House & Senate to demand the same. Remember the power we have - our voices will help to keep those programs most important to us properly funded!
Let your voice be heard to show your support for Governor Dayton in full funding for K-12 education that stays up with inflation. Join in the rally in the MN State Capitol Rotunda at 1pm on Sat, 5/20, then make calls to the Governor's office and those of your MN State Representatives to demand the same.
It is really simple to call – 651-201-3400 or toll-free 800-657-3717. At the end of the line there is a person who tallies every single bill or issue each caller raises and whether the caller opposed the issue or not – so mention as many issues as you can. You don’t need to go into any further details. Every call matters.
After what happened yesterday with the firing of the Head of the FBI, it is very clear that we need an objective, non-partisan investigation into Russian influence on the election, the White House and the President.
This session there have been a number of bills proposed that excessively punish certain types of dissention, and seem specifically aimed at silencing protests by Black Lives Matter groups in response to the death of people in their communities at the hands of the police. We must make it clear that everyone has a right to voice their dissent.
Jason Lewis is inviting constituents of CD2 to fill in a short survey (3 questions only) on 3 important issues – the border wall, bathroom choice for transgender students, the ban on US aid funding of any organizations that either discuss abortion as part of family planning or advocate for abortion rights as part of their work overseas.
A bill we thought was dead seems to be back on the table and the MN Republicans are trying to gauge local reaction to it, before possibly introducing the bill next session. This state-level bill contains provisions that mimic provisions in the national level ACHA Healthcare bill. It’s critical that we let the legislators know that Minnesota opposes this bill!
We humbly invite you to join us for a day of practice space, knowledge exchange, storytelling, and more on this day of learning and unlearning the dominant narratives that perpetuate racism, colonialism, and white supremacy.
On Monday, help us make some noise and make sure legislators don't forget about transit riders on the final day of session.
