Friday 3/30 Call to Action

1. Planned Parenthood Solidarity Day
Today, thousands of anti-Planned Parenthood protesters will be congregating at the Planned Parenthood in St. Paul in an attempt to shame and intimidate patients. In a brilliant act of peaceful opposition, the great people who support PP are holding a big party! If you are free, head down there today to show your support for an organization that provides high quality, affordable health-care and birth control to countless women (Including me, when I was a student. Thanks PP!). It should be a fund day of music, singing, and inspirational stories.
For safety, they do ask that you RSVP. Check it out here:
Check out PP’s Facebook invitation.
2. MNeverAgain Town Hall Project
Minnesota’s student leaders have sent out a call to action for Minnesota’s elected officials. They have created their own town hall during Congress’ spring break. Let’s support them by writing legislators and encouraging them to attend. The town hall will be on April 7th. If you have kids in your life who want to make a change, encourage them to attend the event. Let’s commit to attending as well to show our support. This is really exciting!
Learn more here and take advantage of a letter template to make your job easy.
RSVP to the event on Facebook.
Be sure to “Like” them on Facebook as well.
You can also follow them on Twitter. @MneverAgain_
3. Become an Election Judge
Are you looking for a way to contribute to your community? Why not become an election judge? You will help elections run safely, and smoothly while learning how the government ticks. It’s a paid gig, so it’s a great way to help democracy work while making some $$. Read more about it here.…/get-…/become-an-election-judge/
4. The United States Congress is on spring break this week so it’s a perfect time to focus on what’s happening at Minnesota’s Capitol.

Dates to Remember
Tax Day Rally at the Capitol,
On Sunday, April 15th join fellow Minnesotans in protesting tax laws that benefit the richest Americans at the expense of the poor and working classes. Let’s get together and tell our government that we want them make laws the benefit the majority, not just their pocketbooks and election campaigns.
