An Important Step Forward

After 8 years of union busting, poor environmental votes, and a failure to take on Wall Street banks in the Attorney General's Office, it's time for an Attorney General who represents what the people want.

Andy Dawkins "wants to limit money in politics, protect private data and stop copper-nickel mining in northern Minnesota. He's been speaking out on civil rights, environmental issues and what he sees as the shortcomings of his former party...With six candidates in the attorney general race this fall, he's making the most noise in what is typically a quiet contest." [MPR]

As Attorney General, Andy will demand equal justice for all. Click here for more information about Andy's positions, and here to join the campaign. Together, we can take an important step forward.

    • Bird Safe Protest

      Saturday, September 27, 2014 at 01:00 PM
      Vikings Stadium in Minneapolis, MN

      New_Vikings_Stadium.jpg

      From the organizers:

      The Minnesota Vikings' new stadium will have over 200,000 square feet of glass, and it will be located very close to the Mississippi River -- a major migratory flyway. The members of the Minnesota Sports Facility Authority (MSFA) have refused to use bird-safe glass, which would drastically reduce the number of bird strikes at a cost of roughly 0.1% of the stadium's budget. The MSFA initially claimed that they could not afford the bird-safe glass, but after publicly committing to several billion dollars' worth of additional premier features, they claimed that their reasons for declining to use bird-safe glass were "aesthetic".

      This is a peaceful rally to protest the decision not to use bird-safe glass.
