You care about your neighbors in need of affordable housing, and you can act now to help them. Right now is a turning point for Bring it Home, MN, the bill that can make housing affordable for all of our Minnesota neighbors who rent their homes. Please take one or more of these actions today.
1. Send a virtual postcard to your legislators. There is an urgent need for more virtual postcards to be sent to legislators. Our goal is 100 postcards from St. Joan of Arc members — we are only at 23 so far. Help us get to 100! Link to virtual postcard
2. Contact Senator Rich Draheim
Bring It Home Minnesota has not yet received a hearing in the Minnesota Senate despite having multiple hearings in the House. We need the Senate Housing Chair Rich Draheim to hear from people of faith like you on why Bring It Home needs to be heard in his committee in 2022! You can send him a message in less than a minute by clicking here and filling out this “digital postcard”
3. Rally at the Capitol Join other members of the many Beacon congregations to rally for Bring it Home, Minnesota on Tuesday April 19 from Noon to 1:00PM for a rally for equitable and stable housing in Minnesota! We will have legislators, housing leaders, and those that have been directly affected speak at this event! You don’t want to miss it. You can register by clicking here.
Please invite your friends, neighbors, congregation members, coworkers, and everyone else to join you! We all benefit when we can all afford our home. If you want to carpool from St. Joan's, please contact kberg83 [at] gmail.com (Kris Berggren) and we’ll organize that.
Thank you for everything you do to build housing justice for everyone in our state.
