9/14/18: St. Paul, MN ---- Power to the Polls: Over the past two years we’ve resisted, persisted and created change, and now it’s time to bring our collective Power to The Polls

For these midterms and beyond, Women’s March Minnesota, in partnership with Women’s March National, is launching Power to the Polls.  We are channeling our energy and activism into voter registration and mobilization across the state by empowering grassroots activists with information, tools, educational events, resources, and strategies to impact Minnesota’s turnout in the upcoming elections.

We are launching a social media campaign that will share video of 45+ women in our State talking about “Why I Vote”, we are linking across communities to provide resources (financial and boots on the ground activism) to support the communities who will really make a difference in the polls - communities with boots on the ground doing the important work of registration, early voting, getting people to the polls, and ACTIVATING VOTERS!  We are launching a cross-community shared calendar that educates, inspires, and informs voters about ballot issues, the importance of voting, and where and how to vote.
