Nuns on a Bus
NETWORK’s Nuns on the Bus is headed on the road again! This year, we are driving so “We the People” can stand up against big money in the 2014 midterm elections.
Date & Time:
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Rauenhorst Ballroom, St. Catherine's University
2004 Randolph Avenue, St. Paul, MN 55105
Integral to our identity at NETWORK is seeking to be the listener and learner in communities we are visiting. At the Town Hall for the 100%, we are intentionally creating space for a diverse group of community members to talk about the issues that are most important to them. Together, we will explore how “We the People” can all work together to advance government’s role in establishing the common good through the vote! These events are designed to hear from all the voices that often get drowned out by big money. We will also invite candidates and congressional representatives (or ask them to send high level surrogates) to attend these events in order for them to gain greater understanding into the lives and needs of their constituents.
it is a priority for us that community members encounter one another. Based on previous Nuns on the Bus events, expected turnout is about 250-300 people (perhaps more or less depending on the community). It would be wonderful if the venue could have chairs in a circle or roundtables in order to facilitate those conversations. Nuns on the Bus will come equipped with their own sound system, but if a venue has one that we could use, it would be preferable.
