Be a Protester – Stand Against Hate

We MUST stand up to the MAGA-Republican message of hate!

Kare11 and our own St. Louis Park Mayor Jake Spano reported that flyers with antisemitic messages littered neighborhoods throughout Hopkins and St. Louis Park.  The Edina Sun Current reported (July 21, 2022) that Edina Public Schools is investigating the discovery of anti-Asian, anti-Black and anti-LGBTQ writing on the tennis courts of Kuhlman Stadium.

July 27th, 5-6pm.  Meet at the corner of 50th and Wooddale Ave., Edina

Join the Edina Anti-Racism Collective and Edina LWV and stand up to hate. Bring friends, family, signs and LOVE to show commitment to ending racial discrimination and hate of others in Edina, and our neighboring communities!

The most important job I ever had was Precinct Captain
-Harry S. Truman

  Follow in Truman’s footsteps.  The precinct is where it all

Precinct leaders are neighborhood leaders who serve as the public face for SD46 DFLers.  Precinct leaders help strategize how to reach voters; get them registered to vote; educate neighbors about issues and candidates, go door-to-door to get out the vote; arrange neighborhood social events to meet & greet candidates as well as listening sessions to learn about neighborhood concerns; and much more.

SD46 DFLers will train you, help you get started, and provide other assistance along the way.  Click the city link where you live and sign up.  Join NOW and get busy meeting & connecting with your neighbors!
