MN PPC/#1FairWage: Fight Poverty, Not the Poor

  • 471 Marion Street Saint Paul, MN, 55103 United States (map)

Join us in St. Paul, MN at 2:00 p.m. for a Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival rally and action. 

Can't make it at 2? Meet us at St Paul City Hall at 4pm!!

All working Minnesotans deserve a living wage. But with our minimum wage stuck far below the cost of living, thousands of Minnesotans are working full time and still fighting to make ends meet. That's why Saint Paul workers are organizing to raise the minimum wage to $15, with no carve-outs or exemptions! We're calling on City Hall to fight poverty, not the poor. Join in solidarity with low-wage workers to stand up for a $15 minimum wage without carve-outs. 

If you plan on engaging in nonviolent direct action, there is mandatory training at 10:30 am on June 11 (the day of the event). Please register at https://actionnetwork.org/events/civil-disobedience-training-for-june-11-action

Partner groups: 15Now, Hmong Americans for Justice, CTUL, Our Minnesota Future, Restaurant Opportunities Center
