Dear GFMBC Family,

Coming off last week’s important victory on drug sentencing reform, we have a lot of work to do to prevent prison expansion, stop CCA, pass Juvenile Justice Reform and end Mass Incarceration!
Please come to the next Justice Reform Team Leadership Meeting
Wednesday, December 2, 6:30-8:30pm
Lutheran Church of the Redeemer, 285 N. Dale Street, St. Paul MN
We are at a critical turning point in changing sentencing laws in Minnesota. We must continue to be a strong voice, in this time of change. We can't give up now!!!
We hope to see you there!
Toya, Catalina & Lars

Dear GFMBC Family,

Last week, I wrote to ask you to join me on December 12 for a historic gathering that I believe will not only make a difference, but make the world a different place--“The People’s Congress” – a statewide people’s assembly for a more equitable state.
The People’s Congress
A Faith, Labor and Neighborhood Event For A New Minnesota
Saturday, December 12th, 2015
11 am – 5 pm
Minneapolis Convention Center
Now, I have two reasons to ask you to take a few minutes and register TODAY:
  • First, the registration deadline is November 30. That's a week from today. And I want you to take a few minutes to get registered before the holidays.
  • Second, Target Corporation has agreed to send someone from senior management to be in dialogue with us. Target has the power to be a key ally on issues we care about. That makes it all the more important that we show up powerfully on December 12.
250 people of faith are registered. We want to bring 100 more together for this powerful moment in our state. If you're reading this and you have not registered, I need you to become one of those 100 people. 
CAN I COUNT ON YOU TO REGISTER TODAY AND ENSURE OTHERS FROM YOUR CONGREGATION ARE REGISTERED BY NOVEMBER 30?
With gratitude for all that you are and all that you do.
Sincerely,
Doran Schrantz
ISAIAH Executive Director
Find more information about the Congress itself below.

All successful social movements have, at their center, people of faith. This is the start of a new people’s movement in our state, and we must lead with an imagination of what can be made possible through God. We are the ones who must make this vision for a new Minnesota a reality, putting our hands, our hearts and our feet to making an economy and society of radical inclusion.
Please register today, and recruit others to register BEFORE THANKSGIVING! It's time for us to show Minnesota what it looks like when people of faith unite and commit to a whole new way of being in the public arena.
