The Winona Human Rights commission would like to announce our endorsement of the Move to Amend (MTA) Coalition and ask our fellow citizens to learn about MTA and add themselves or their organizations as endorsers as well. Please visit www.movetoamend.org to learn more and add your support. We also remain concerned about Winona’s ongoing relationship with Wells Fargo as a local example of financial interests overriding concern for human rights.
This August we'll be heading to Minneapolis to take part in the Democracy Convention. This five day event is an opportunity for us to bring in like-minded individuals ready to join the movement and brainstorm real solutions for creating a government that works for its people and not only its corporations.
Help us raise the $25,000 we need to organize the Democratizing the Constitution Conference at the Democracy Convention. Since starting this campaign, we've raised about $1000. We need to raise $24,000 more by July 20.
Please help us make this important event happen and donate today
