Minnesota has just finished up a historic legislative session. There were victories on virtually every front. The Dream Act. Ban the Box. Homeowners’ Bill of Rights. Medicaid expansion. All Day K and a tuition freeze for students. Progressive Taxation and Closing Corporate Tax Loopholes. Home Care and Child Care Organizing. A serious increase in funding for low-income housing. New Solar Energy Standards. Workers rights included unemployment benefits for locked out workers and workers compensation reform. Family-supporting jobs. And on and on and on. What we won is just as important as how we won – with people powered, grassroots activism.
The People’s Party will celebrate the accomplishments of this legislative session and the grassroots volunteers, leaders, and organizations that made them happen. This is casual, fun, family-friendly event. Think more mingling and chatting than listening to speakers speak.
