#FamiliesBelongTogether March update

[POSTER MAKING THURSDAY 3 p.m. Cameron Park]

The March details: Plan to BEGIN AT CITY HALL at 11:30 a.m. There is parking in the city Hall lot and in the nearby Western Technical College lots. Also the #4 MTU bus stops on 7th Street, one block from City Hall.

March to BURNS PARK at 8th & Main for a rally at noon.

Dress for the weather. Bring sun screen. Bring a reusable water bottle. Bring your signs and intentions to not make this rally your last effort, but rather make it the first step toward electing different people to office AND not falling into the 'both sides are equal' mind f**k trap.

That means registering to vote and making sure others are registered and then voting. But not just voting. It means volunteering to help good candidates (or at least better than the other guy candidates for now) so that things don't actually get worse. It means joining a party to transform it and the candidates it offers for office. It may also mean running for office locally or within party leadership or pushing for legislation that will not allow politicians to illegally detain, torture, imprison, and dismiss refugees and their legal claims of asylum. (See the latest issue of The Commoner Call for details).
