Community Support Connections for FEBRUARY
Kingfield Neighborhood Association EQUITY lawn signs – they have a suggested donation of $10 but we’ll take any amount (or none).
There's a great series starting up to help us learn more about our country's constitution Find it at Solomon's Porch!
We are closing EARLY on Thursday, February 23 for a special event - a Book Release Party for local author, Allison Morse.
*City Advocacy work – Join me for a listening session on the efforts of the city council to create it’s own schedule for lifting the minimum wage to $15 – Sabathani Community Center – Feb 15 – 5 pm
*State advocacy efforts– Dan will be 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) – SENATE HEARING MONDAY at 1 PM!
*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” has gathered a lot of attention. Talking Points are at the front counter. Our conversation series last Saturday was a hopeful event - more of those on the way.
*Industry advocacy - Re-Thinking the Tip Compensation Model – is also a growing national movement and locally I’m working with other restaurant owners to think about how to educate our customers, employees, and other owners about the brokenness of this model and how to treat our employees as the professionals they are.
