I'm posting this the day after the 2016 election (my thoughts on that here). This site's database is being updated right now-- adding new organizations, deleting defunct ones, updating info, etc. There's a long way to go; feel free to get in touch with suggestions.
Additionally, some new writing: For People Who Want to "Do" Something But Don't Know Where to Start
For now, I wanted to highlight some organizations that have been particularly active lately, right here on the home page, as opposed to in the database itself. As always, these are not "endorsements" of one org over another; it's just a snapshot of what I've seen. It's a starting point, as this entire website is. If you are able, dive in, get involved:
A few things to keep in mind:
1. MN Activist is a resource for people in the Twin Cities (and beyond, eventually) who want to get involved in activism. This site is a work-in-progress. Our database is up and running, but there's still a LOT left to be added. For now, it's just a solid starting point. If you explore a little, it'll give you an idea of what's going on.
2. Aside from the org database, this site is a place where progressive activists can share tips, resources and important information. Check out the toolkits and independent media links on the right, and our resource/discussion page here.
