Few organizations have fought harder or organized better for the $15 minimum wage in Minneapolis, and this month Anthony Newby, Executive Director of Neighborhoods Organizing for Change (NOC).  Anthony will come talk about why it belongs on the ballot, the mistake in the Supreme Court’s decision to strike it from the ballot, and the difference it can make for hundreds of low-wage workers.
 
Anthony began his organizing career in disaster relief, helping create an innovative social media platform to deliver aid in the wake of a tornado that devastated North Minneapolis in 2011.   He then worked to leverage the local Occupy movement into what became Occupy Homes MN, one of the most dynamic movement organizing models in the country. He has since worked to grow NOC into a intersectional movement hub and one of most compelling black and people of color-led community organizations in the nation.
 
Free and open to the public! Come early, buy your coffee (the law is you can't bring food or drinks into a restaurant), learn a lot and have your questions ready.
