December: Citizen Activists Holiday Party - Do Something Good.
Hosted by MSP NOW
Thursday, 17 January 2019 from 6:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. at Black Dog Cafe, 308 E Prince St, St Paul, MN 55101
If 2018 was all about electing good leaders, 2019 is about advancing our progressive agenda.
But how do we do that? How do we track a bill's progress, and how can we help drive what we want forward? What does this part of the process look like, and what kind of power can individual citizen activists wield? And how can we wield it most effectively?
Great questions. And our fantastic panelists will have even better answers. See you soon.

June: Mobilizing for the Midterms Part 2
..with Dr. Alice Mann, Jillia Pessenda and Joelle Strangler
Thursday August 16, a couple dozen women gathered at Lake and Legends Brewing for Third Thursday. There was a lot of enthusiasm, some joy and a little sadness at the post-Primaries Third Thursday.
May: Mobilizing for the Midterms
The Legislative session is over, and the party Conventions have kicked off the election season. This is what we’ve all been waiting for -- to vote the right people into power!! While voter turnout across Minnesota is definitely important (especially for the state-wide races), the purple suburban districts are arguably where this November will be won or lost.
April: A Mid-Session Check-In
It was a full room at the Black Dog on May’s Third Thursdays to hear about “Mobilizing for the Midterms”. And with midterm elections just six months away, it’s a good time to start to rally.
March: The Fight For Equal Pay
Really interesting evening and much ground was covered. What a privilege to have both Minority Leaders! With less than 4 weeks left of the 2018 MN Leg Session, these were our main takeaways:
March 26, 2018
On average, woman are paid 20% less than their male counterparts, and that ratio is even worse for woman of color. We "celebrate" Equal Pay Day on April 10, the day in 2018 where women will finally have made as much money as their male counterparts did during the 2017 calendar year. The wage gap is real, and it's time we do something about it.
