Whether we are white, black or brown, have been in the United States for 10 generations, or are a newcomer here, we all want to leave future generations a healthy and beautiful Minnesota.
We all share and depend upon this Earth, and this election season we cannot let divisive and harmful rhetoric from certain politicians and lobbyists deliberately distract us with fear mongering and keep voters from paying attention to what really matters.
The “Greater Than Fear” campaign calls out against racist language that harms hard-working Minnesotans and future generations. We know that by treating one another as we would like to be treated and working side-by-side, we are far more powerful.
Let’s join together and vote Greater than Fear on November 6.
Land Stewardship Action Fund leaders like Jennifer are already speaking out:
“My name is Jennifer and I live in Brainerd, Minnesota. I am #GreaterthanFear. I love Minnesota because people take care of each other. Right now there are people trying to divide us, trying to distract us with their fear mongering. Trying to make us afraid of immigrants and refugees and anyone who is different.
Well, I refuse to be afraid. I’m not afraid of people who look and live differently than I do. I am not afraid of people who walk across the desert in search of a better life for their babies.
Some people blame immigrants for our hard times.
I blame greed. I blame corporate CEOs who make millions while their workers barely make it at all. I love Minnesota. I love the people here. We care about each other, and we all want the similar things for our families: health, happiness, education, safety.
This November, I’m voting for candidates who offer hope for our communities because I know that Minnesotans are greater than fear.”
