Sexual Harassment Task Force Rally!

  • Minnesota State Capitol Rotunda 75 Rev Dr Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard. Saint Paul, MN, 55155 United States (map)

"We must demand change and be willing to fight for it!"

Please join us at the Capitol Rotunda!

Two months ago, sexually harassed women in our Minnesota legislature requested an independent task force! 

Two months ago, we held a rally at the Capitol to support these women!

This task force is to ensure that people working at the Capitol and in campaigns are able to do their jobs without sexual harassment or assault!

TWO MONTHS have passed and NOTHING has happened.

These women recently asked AGAIN for a task force.

Still nothing.

This failure to act by our elected officials is not acceptable!

Systemic change must occur!

PLEASE JOIN US so we may make it VERY CLEAR to the Governor and the legislative leaders that we are not going anywhere and we WILL NOT be ignored.

WE ARE NOT GOING AWAY!!!

GOVERNOR DAYTON -
LEGISLATIVE LEADERS -

*We, the Citizens of Minnesota are coming to the Capitol to demand that a bipartisan task force on sexual harassment and abuse be established IMMEDIATELY and WITHOUT DELAY!!
