Dear Emory,

I hope you had the chance over the last four days to spend time with friends and family, and to reconnect with the sacred in your life.
Today is the last day to register for “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
385 people of faith have registered to join us. That's well beyond our goal of 350. But I want our movement to grow. SO I AM CHALLENGING US TO REACH A NEW GOAL: 425 PEOPLE OF FAITH COMMITTED TO JOINING US FOR THE PEOPLE'S CONGRESS!
HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN DO:  take a few minutes and register TODAY AND SHARE THIS WITH PEOPLE IN YOUR CHURCH!
Why join us? Well, I am going because I want to see big changes happen in our state. And as we continue to try to make those changes happen, we continue to run into the same obstacles. Corporate spending plays too big a role in shaping what's possible at the Capitol and even at local levels of government. AND elected officials from both major parties are not leading as boldly or powerfully as they should. We are at a turning point. And we have the chance to make history together.
I can't do that by myself, but I am confident that you and I and 1500 people, gathered together, can work together to reclaim our democracy, our economy, and our environment. We've already hit our goal of bringing 350 people of faith together with workers, neighborhood leaders, and economic justice champions.
BUT I STILL NEED YOU WITH US ON DECEMBER 12! 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.
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
