Claiming Our Voices

Claiming Our Voices

I went to my precinct caucus with Claiming Our Voices, now what? Fill out this brief but important form: https://tinyurl.com/PostCaucusForm

Next steps will be communicated from our partner Faith in Minnesota.

What is Claiming Our Voices? #ClaimingOurVoices is an initiative between ISAIAH and Faith in Minnesota. People of faith across the state are claiming their moral and faith voice in the political arena and are building independent political power that is grounded in their prophetic values.

Thousands of people of faith, dedicated to justice and public love, will flood the caucuses this year. They are leading a path throughout 2018 to ensure that the legislative session and the next Governor of Minnesota are accountable to moral clarity through our agenda.

Why Caucusing? Through caucusing, we have the power to shape the issues and political environment. We can elevate our shared vision for Minnesota by moving candidates to talk about a better agenda for all people and have them commit to working on those issues. We can shape the campaigns and hold candidates accountable.

Building a world that justly serves people requires that we all step up and participate, starting with political participation. Real change starts at the grassroots. Precinct caucuses are a grassroots, ground level way for you and me to get involved and be heard, even if we have never participated before.

What’s a Faith Agenda? Our Claiming Our Voices House Meetings throughout the fall were the first step in our formation of boldly proclaiming our faith and our vision for a just Minnesota through 2018. Hundreds of ISAIAH leaders and our partner organization, Faith in Minnesota, have come together throughout the last month to develop our 2018 Faith Agenda in response to the concerns and issues that emerged from our House Meeting conversations. This Faith Agenda represents our shared values and our proposed policy priorities for the next Governor of Minnesota.

ISAIAH is publicly announced our faith agenda January 14-18 through several events across the state, unifying the multifaceted nature of Minnesotans, geographically, denominationally, and racially. There are several planks of this agenda, but it is all ONE AGENDA. Just as people of God are called to act as one body, their concerns for justice cannot be separated from one another.

What’s a Faith Delegate?

Faith Delegates are leaders who are committed to put racial and economic justice at the heart of our politics through 2018 by committing to bring our faith agenda into the center of public decisions through caucuses all the way to party conventions in June of 2018.

We need YOU to join us on this path. There will be Faith Delegate Trainings across Minnesota throughout January. To commit to be a faith delegate and to find a January Faith Delegate Training near you, click here: www.tinyurl.com/faithdelegate2018
