If you can help deliver or volunteer, reach out to Sally Ankerfelt. Please bring boxes of diapers of any size (sizes 3, 4, 5, and 6 are the most requested) to church on Sundays or drop off during office hours Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Interfaith Legislation Hearings & Rallies
Democracy Day at Capitol | January 17, 9:30am
(We Choose Us Campaign action)
Hello Redeemer family, it’s Mannie ( They/He ) -- you might have seen me around! I’m a community organizer with ISAIAH/ FAITH IN MN under the Barbershop and Black Congregation Cooperative. Right now we are working to create some huge change within Minnesota and especially in Minneapolis. We are working to bring legislation around rent stabilization to create equitable forms of living, and on building an equitable multiracial/multicultural democracy by fighting to pass the Restore the Vote bill to allow those who have finished time in prison to rejoin community and participate in democracy through the right to vote. These are huge opportunities to see change in our communities, especially for some of us who come from marginalized communities.
