When faced with similar challenges in the past, Minnesotans have united to urge policymakers to use our resources to fund crucial public investments.
We must again work with our representatives at the State Capitol to invest in what we know builds strong families, neighborhoods and communities: health care, child care, paid family and medical leave, affordable housing, a quality education from the earliest years through college and training, clean air and water, and other building blocks of a high-quality standard of living.
Today, too many of our neighbors are struggling to make ends meet, to get the child care they need to work, put food on the table, and a safe, permanent roof over their heads.
We need to use the historic resources we have this year to strengthen crucial public services, and ensure we have an equitable tax system to sustain those investments into the future.
Use the resources below in your advocacy for raising state revenues to support the actions needed to tackle the pandemic and economic downturn, protect public services that Minnesotans count on, and build a stronger, more equitable recovery.
