Win the Day: Volume 1

Welcome to Win the Day, a new weekly political series from TakeAction Minnesota.

We’re unapologetic progressives. We dream big. Like so many of you, we’re hungry to change what’s possible.

That’s why we’re launching Win the Day.

To us, winning elections isn’t the same as winning the day. Winning the day is the power to change the story. The foundational stories: the ones that shape the the way we think. Who are we as Minnesotans? What are the struggles that connect us? These underlying stories show us what is and isn’t possible. It’s an arena of power that, frankly, we don’t always fight for.
