Mark your calendars now for the online launch event for the Minnesota Working Group on October 17th, at 7:00pm Central Daylight Time.

About this event

Third Act’s Minnesota Working Group is just getting started and we need YOU! We are mobilizing Minnesotans age 60+ to come together to accomplish truly remarkable feats in response to the reality and chaos climate change is causing today and the impact it’ll have on our children’s and grandchildren’s future.  We are also committed to safeguarding our nation’s democracy, which we see as under threat from voter suppression and the influence of big money in politics.

Perhaps you have never spoken out, joined a group of like-minded folks, written a letter to the editor, attended a protest or tried to get a candidate who shares your views elected.  By joining our ranks, you become part of a bold, spirited and determined local and nationwide movement. This is your moment and opportunity to leverage the skills and wisdom you have honed on your way to age 60+ and be a part of something greater than yourself.  Our generation was born for this moment.  Your voice and actions can amplify our efforts.

Our launch is the perfect opportunity for you to find out more about what we’re up to and how you can play an active role.  For our official launch we’ll be joined by several special guests.

Register to join us at the Third Act Minnesota launch event.
