Building Progressive Political Power in Minnesota -- around the politics and economics of livelihood...

Calling all activists--- including activists from North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Manitoba and Ontario. Consider coming to this event and setting up table selling books, distributing leaflets about your activities on these issues. Let's all get acquainted so we can participate in joint actions.  There is no charge. It would provide a good basis for united activity on these four important issues: https://www.facebook.com/events/398475413619599/399265223540618/?notif_t=plan_mall_activity
