Election Day is bearing down on us quickly and many people and organizations are working hard to elect their candidates. One such group is the Minnesota AFL-CIO  which has gathered over 500 delegates in Duluth this week to listen to candidates, pass resolutions, and get fired up for the remainder of this election cycle. Monday, September 15, delegates will take part in “Turn Around America” and will doorknock the city of Duluth, talking to union families about the issues and labor-endorsed candidates. WorkdayMinnesota has coverage of the convention.

I am reminded of an old Doobie Brothers tune, ‘Takin it to the streets’.

You don’t know me but I’m your brother
I was raised here in this living hell
You don’t know my kind in your world
Fairly soon the time will tell
You, telling me the things you’re gonna do for me
I aint blind and I don’t like what I think I see

Take this message to my brother
You will find him everywhere
Wherever people live together
Tied in poverty’s despair
You, telling me the things you’re gonna do for me
I aint blind and I don’t like what I think I see

Here is an excellent live version of the Doobie Brothers preforming performing, ‘Takin’ It To The Streets’, that I would like to dedicate to the brothers and sisters in Duluth.

 

Peace & solidarity,

CHC
