Upcoming events: THURSDAY ReclaimMN Unity Action Feb. 18th

Get involved in the struggle for workers’ rights in Minneapolis! Join 15 Now MN at these upcoming events:

Reclaim MN Unity Action
RSVP, Thursday Feb. 18th, 7:00 AM

“Business as usual” politics in Minnesota have led to high rates of poverty in working class communities and created the worst-in-the-nation racial disparities. The fight for a $15 minimum wage is a fight for racial and economic justice.
Next Thursday, hundreds of Minnesotans will come together in downtown Minneapolis to #ReclaimMN. Big business and the political establishment use every opportunity to fight against a workers’ rights agenda, but working people in Minneapolis will send a clear message: No more business as usual!

Campaign Launch: Let’s Take $15 to the ballot!
RSVP, Saturday Feb. 27th 2:30 – 4:30 pm
Brian Coyle Center – 420 15th Ave. S

2:30 – Rally and Speakers, including Nekima Levy-Pounds, and low-wage workers leading the fight for $15/hour from 15 Now MN, MN NOC, CTUL, and others
3:15 – Community Action Group Break-outs: caucus training, answering common questions, prepare for collecting thousands of signatures to get $15 on the ballot!

Join us on February 27th in a mass rally and organizing event to bring together all workers and supporters of a $15/hr.

After the rally, plug into the campaign to win $15! 15 Now will lead trainings on how to introduce resolutions for $15 at the March 1st Caucuses. Passing these resolutions in hundreds of caucuses across Minneapolis-St. Paul will demonstrate the massive support for $15. We’ll also have small group discussion on how to answer common questions about $15 to prepare for the signature collection phase in March.
