5. Volunteer for a local campaign.
Gubernatorial and U.S. Congressional races are important and it’s fun to help with a big campaign, but please don’t forget the local candidates that are out there every day fighting to make Minnesota better. Pledge today to help a local candidate at least twice a month. There are so many different ways to contribute so everyone can help regardless of time and physical ability.
Here are some comprehensive lists of local candidates that need your help. There are opportunities every single day. Pledge to do something.
You have 4 MONTHS to make a difference. The actions we take now will have consequences for generations to come. Commit to being part of the solution.
