Organized by the Welfare Rights Committee
Why we are protesting:
We are sick of our people homeless and suffering with nothing. Lots of us in need can’t get any help at all. Tell Governor Mark Dayton to Give Aid to All in Need. This means there should be cash help for families who have hit the 5-year limit on welfare & singles who are have no income and still can’t find work.
The Welfare Rights Committee’s bill to Give Aid to All in Need (the GAAIN bill, SF1426 & HF1533) tells the state to give cash grants to people who have no income and are looking for work. Join us Jan. 8 for our action in front of the Mansion. We aim to show the governor what MN will look like if something is not done to help people NOW.
Uncounted = We don’t count? The state does not even know how many people in need are out here. The state of MN says we are uncounted, uncountable and don’t count — because the state doesn’t care! Our job is to make them care.
On Friday, Jan. 8, join the Welfare Rights Committee outside Governor Dayton’s mansion. We will have people there on and off throughout the day and night.
We will “occupy” the ground in front of the mansion, with chairs, tables, tents and shelters. The main rally is between 4pm and 6pm, but if you can only do the morning, be there from 10 to 11 a.m.
Join us Nov. 20 if you know anyone who has: Hit the time limit on MFIP…had unemployment benefits run out … had Food Stamps cut off …Just got out of prison or jail … been homeless, or taking care of homeless families…Rents too high!…Needs subsidized housing … Can only get SNAP for 3 months in a 3 year period… poverty cuz MFIP and GA grants have not gone up in 29 years… housing, but risks losing it because we take in our homeless family & friends…become sick of the economic abuse…been paying taxes for years so we could have help when we need it, but no help is there.
