Community Support Connections for JULY
Do you have your Kingfield Neighborhood Association EQUITY lawn sign? – Pick one up at Butter! they have a suggested donation of $10 but we’ll take any amount!
We're providing contributions and donations to:
Kingfield Garden Tour (July 13)
Big River Farm’s Open House (July 15) - part of the Co-Op Farm Tour
Greenway Glow (July 29)
We set aside an evening to host volunteers of Andrea Jenkins campaign for city council – July 11 - 6 pm
Send some love to our pals at CAFE MEOW! They're working on a plan to locate in the Lyn-Lake area!
*City Advocacy work – continues as our city imagines lifting wages. We are living it out here at Butter through a model that doesn't use tip compensation to provide fair, living wages for our staff. Dan is a part of a group of businesses working with the city on their support for One Fair Wage and small business support.
*State advocacy efforts– we stopped the pre-emption bill but there are still some challenging problems with bills that legislators passed this spring. Dan and the Main Street Alliance are keeping up the fight. Need a way to get connected? TakeActionMN! Shop your values through Main Street Alliance!
*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”
