The time to act on Minnesota's budget crisis is now! Tuesday April 21 is Capitol Call-In Day. Please participate so that our voices are heard loudly and in unison.

We need to protect our most vulnerable neighbors from deep cuts to health care and human services and it is now clear that new revenues are a necessary part of any humane solution to our budget shortfall.

JRLC is asking each of our members to make two easy phone calls to your own elected state legislators. We are doing this as part of the Invest in Minnesota campaign, sponsored by faith, labor, and nonprofit groups across Minnesota.

Please take part in our Capitol Call-In Day Tuesday April 21. It’s easy! Follow these steps and forward this email to your friends today.

Find your state representative and state senator and their phone numbers by going to this website.

Make calls to both of them with the following message:
“My name is _______________ and I am a constituent in your district. I am calling to let you know that I support raising revenues fairly.  We cannot solve the current budget shortfall without adequate funding for public services that Minnesotans count on to make ends meet. We need a balanced solution, including a balanced tax system where everyone pays their fair share.”

More detailed instructions here.

We want to know how your calls go.  Please contact JRLC at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to let us know how your calls went.

And thank you for your raising your voice.

God's peace,

Brian Rusche
JRLC executive director
