Events surrounding the death of George Floyd have shocked and disturbed us and motivated us to hope we can change things for the better. Along with the Covid-19 pandemic and the inequities it created, it reminds us of our need to create a state where human rights are respected and our collective abundance is shared.
These propositions are central to ISAIAH’s Faith Agenda that 115 churches and mosques have pushed at the Minnesota legislature. Much of this agenda has been adopted by the Minnesota House and supported by the Governor — but has stalled in the Minnesota Senate.
But there is an election coming that can change that as well as our national situation. To do so, we need neighbors, friends, family and the progressive faith community to vote this fall like never before. This election will shape the future of this state and nation for at least the next ten years.
ISAIAH has launched a Statewide Voter Engagement Program with the goal of turning out 300,000 progressive voters this fall. We’d like to invite you to be part of that effort by attending a ZOOM voter engagement session on:
Sunday July 19 from 1:00pm – 4:00 pm; register
Monday July 20 from 9:30 am – 12:30 pm; register
Tuesday July 21 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm; register
Wednesday July 22 from 6:00 – 9:00pm; register
ISAIAH members will be contacting you to join this effort. But you don’t have to wait for a call.
You can register for these events by clicking on those links, or if you have questions, contact Dan Quillin (email@example.com), Rudi Anders (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Marlys Nygren (email@example.com) and they can also register you. These events are designed to develop the person-to-person network necessary to turnout 300,000 voter and flip the Minnesota Senate into friendlier hands that will embrace the ISAIAH’s faith agenda in 2021.
So far, 102 Mayflower members or their friends have signed up to recruit friends, neighbors and progressive church members in this effort. But we still have a way to go. Are you willing to move out of your comfort zone to make change?
Let’s make it happen.
