Fundraiser for the Welfare Rights Committee
Friday, Nov 18
6:30 pm – 9:30 pm
At the home of Sarah Martin
622 8th Ave SE, Minneapolis
Thousands of dollars are spent on tax breaks for the rich and corporations. Every year the US spends billions of dollars on war and occupations around the world. Meanwhile, 70,000 children in Minnesota live in extreme poverty. The Welfare Rights Committee (WRC) is one of very few voices advocating for money to be spend on those who need it, poor and working poor families.
The Welfare Rights Committee is the only group fighting to get more money those who need it – we have bills at the capitol to “Double the Welfare Grants” and to “Give Aid to All in Need.” Our fight has gotten real money in the pockets of poor Minnesotans in the past, and we need your support so we can keep up the fight for more.
This is where you can help make a difference in the lives of poor Minnesotans. Your financial contributions will help ensure that we can continue to organize, continue to have a hot meal and childcare at our meetings to eliminate barriers to getting involved, continue to keep an office and phone.
If you can’t attend the fundraiser, you can mail a donation to Welfare Rights Committee at 4200 Cedar Ave, Ste 4, Minneapolis, MN, 55407.
We are working with PayPal for an online payment solution, which should happen soon!
