Low-wage workers in the Twin Cities are launching a grassroots campaign to put a $15 minimum wage on the ballot in Minneapolis in 2016. The initiative is backed by 15 Now Minnesota, Neighborhoods Organizing for Change (NOC), Centro de Trabajadores Unidos en Lucha (CTUL), the Minneapolis NAACP, Socialist Alternative, the Minnesota Public Interest Research Group (MPIRG), the Minneapolis chapter of Black Lives Matter and other community and labor organizations.
When: Saturday February 27th, 2:30 - 4:30pm
Where: Brian Coyle Community Center (Gym) 420 15th Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55454
2:30 - Rally and Speakers, including Nekima Levy-Pounds, and low-wage workers leading the fight for $15/hour from 15 Now MN, MN NOC, CTUL, and others
3:15 - Community Action Group Break-outs: caucus training, answering common questions, prepare for collecting thousands of signatures to get $15 on the ballot!
Join us on February 27th in a mass rally and organizing event to bring together all workers and supporters of a $15/hr.
After the rally, plug into the campaign to win $15! 15 Now will lead trainings on how to introduce resolutions for $15 at the March 1st Caucuses. Passing these resolutions in hundreds of caucuses across Minneapolis-St. Paul will demonstrate the massive support for $15. We’ll also have small group discussion on how to answer common questions about $15 to prepare for the signature collection phase in March.
