Community Support Connections for March
Kingfield Neighborhood Association EQUITY lawn signs – they have a suggested donation of $10 but we’ll take any amount (or none).
We're providing contributions and donations to:
Green Central School – March 7
Grace Neighborhood Nursery School - March 11
South High Theater – March 16
Zoom House – March 18
South High Music Department – March 24
Emerson Spanish Immersion – March 24
RAISE / ROC – March 27
*City Advocacy work – continues as our city imagines lifting wages. We're taking it to the next step by creating a model that won't use tip compensation to provide fair, living wages for our staff. Watch for our survey and conversation table dates.
*State advocacy efforts– Dan has been at the capital for testimony against a pre-emption bill seeking to stop cities like Minneapolis and St. Paul from creating workplace rules (like the Earned Sick and Safe Time and the minimum wage increases which it aims to REPEAL). Please contact the Governor and tell him to not sign this bill.
*National advocacy efforts – we’ve joined a national movement of restaurants to offer a refuge from hate – “Sanctuary Restaurant – A Place at the Table for Everyone” Dan travels to DC at the end of the month for a National Conference!
