MINNEAPOLIS and ST. PAUL, Minn. Nov. 4, 2016 – ISAIAH, a faith-based, nonprofit dedicated to economic and racial justice, has exceeded their initial benchmark goal of 10,000 voter engagement conversations and anticipates that number climbing to over 12,000 by election day. These door-to-door conversations have spanned across the state and focus on issues that, while not on this election ballot, largely affect the daily lives of both working and impoverished families. Many of these issues include raising the minimum wage, fighting poverty profiteering, having paid family leave and affordable childcare, as well as general Get Out the Vote efforts.
