Super Bowl Actions

In the week leading up to the Super Bowl, SPFT is joining with other organizations including Black Visions Collective, CTUL, Inquilinxs Unidxs, the Bakers Union, MN350, and others to organize a series of actions to draw attention to the crisis in Minneapolis. The Super Bowl is our opportunity to create a vision of a new world we co-create.

The Pre-Game: Our Lives Over Their Game

When: Thursday, February 1 in the early evening
Where: TBD
Who: Inquilinxs Unidxs (Tenants United for Justice) & Black Visions Collective

Home Depot Action

When: Friday, February 2 from 4:30 – 6:30pm
Where: Home Depot at the Quarry (1520 New Brighton Blvd, Minneapolis, MN 55413)

Super Bowl Breakfast: Action to Demand $15

The Super Bowl is hosted by the same companies that tried to keep working families in poverty by fighting Earned Sick Time and a $15 Minimum Wage. While they host an elite breakfast Saturday morning, we’ll gather outside for a people’s breakfast to honor workers who fight for living wages, their families, and communities

When: Saturday, February 3 from 7:00 – 9:00am
Where: Minneapolis Hilton (1001 Marquette Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55403

Where: Saint Paul Regional Labor Federation (353 W 7th St, St. Paul, MN 55102)
Who: BCTGM Local 22 – Baker’s Union

Super Bowl Anti-Racist and Anti-Corporate Coalition March

The city will spend millions to beef up the police force and clear homeless people out of downtown, in a shameful effort to whitewash Minneapolis and ignore real problems of injustice and exploitation.

Where: Peavey Park (730 22nd St E, Minneapolis, MN 55404
Who: Super Bowl Anti-Racist and Anti-Corporate Coalition
