In this critical election year, we need thousands of Minnesotans of faith to mobilize together, building momentum to ensure that climate is a top priority for decision-makers, candidates, and voters in 2020 – ensuring a just and healthy planet for generations to come. MNIPL's goal is to train 100+ volunteers on how to use relational organizing to mobilize their network to not only vote but also to engage further in the civic process in order to advocate for climate justice.
To achieve this vision, MNIPL is launching our Climate Justice Voter Campaign. For real climate action to occur, we need Minnesotans to vote with climate justice in mind. Join us in our effort to mobilize voters across to the state to vote.
1) Attend a Relational Organizing for Transformational Change training: Learn how to connect with people in your own network about the importance of voting and how they can be climate champions. During these 90 minutes trainings, you will learn about our current campaign and how you can connect with people about the importance of voting using an app called Empower.
