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.

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.
