At our September 17th meeting, the MN CAFE Coalition agreed upon the establishment of five Action Teams as we work towards making a Minnesota ERA a reality. Take a look and tell us where your strengths might be put to use!
Have grantwriting experience? Do you know secret sources of corporate funding that aren’t in the Minnesota Council of Non-Profits’ orbit? Do you have the verve and gusto necessary to head up an individual donor campaign? Do you like to throw elaborate fundraising parties? We need you. Equality costs a lot of money.
Coalition Recruitment Team
We have a great list of people, political parties, women’s groups, schools, businesses, unions, religious groups, social justice non-profits, corporations, etc. etc. that we want to join the MN CAFE Coalition. We need you and your friends to help us reach out to them, one and all.
Currently, our communications team consists of li’l old me, alerting you of happenings via this blog and Facebook, and Kathleen, crack designer of MN CAFE printed literature. As our Coalition grows, and when the Legislature reconvenes in Feburary 2010, we’ll need to step up our game. Press releases, public research polling, targeted advertising: we will need it all.
Education & Outreach Team
If you are a feminist Toastmaster, we have a job for you. We want a great team of speakers who are willing and able to talk to small groups in neighborhoods and to large groups at conferences. We also need a team of extroverts to staff MN CAFE information tables at community events around the state.
Legislative Strategy Team
This team gets to storm the halls of power in St. Paul in 2010 with an effective plan to win passage of an ERA bill in both the House and the Senate. Smart, friendly, feminist schmoozers wanted.
