GQ’s Citizen of the Year

It's about more than just taking a knee. Take a look at what else Colin Kaepernick's been up to and it's not hard to see why he was named GQ's "Citizen of the Year."

Elections – Breaking Ground

We're so excited to see Andrea Jenkins for Ward 8 already making waves in MN. She’s the first openly transgender black woman to hold public office in the United States. And she’s ready to bring change to Minnesota.

Gun Safety

“This is another case where every red flag was waving -- but he was able to keep his guns.” - Protect Minnesota on this week's mass shooting in N. California.

Our hearts are with the community of Sutherland Springs, Texas. This suffering is growing year by year, but it is preventable -- and must stop. Here are some actions you can take today

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment and assault is not a partisan issue. It is not about politics. U.S. Senator Al Franken should be held accountable for his actions. We have a duty to believe and support survivors, always.

We are grateful to Erin Maye Quade & Lindsey Port for MN House for their bravery in sharing the details of sexual harassment they endured from MN State Senator Dan Schoen & Representative Tony Cornish.

We are calling for the immediate resignations of MN Reps. Tony Cornish (R) and Dan Schoen (D), join us. We must stop harassment each and every time it is presented.

Yes means yes. No means no. Former VP Joe Biden gets it

Tax Plan Proposals

The Senate GOP just added a new provision to their Tax Bill that guts the ACA & kicks 13 million people off insurance. See Senator Elizabeth Warren’s video.

The GOP tax bill has cleared the House Ways and Means Committee. Have you called your representatives and told them to stop this bill in its tracks?
