Longtime readers of this blog (before its gorgeous design update by Sarah at One Starry Night) know that I identify myself politically not by party, but as a feminist and a good old fashioned Minnesota LIBERAL. As such, nothing makes me happier than being able to support a liberal feminist woman in her bid for public office. This weekend my friend Farheen Hakeem is hoping to raise the $3000 she needs to qualify for state matching funds in her race for a seat in the Minnesota State Senate. Farheen is one of the smartest, funniest, and coolest people in Minneapolis. I believe in her and share in her wish to return to a state government that works for people, not corporations.
- Donations for these state matching funds must come from Minnesota residents (out of staters will be hit up later)
- Donations must be in $50 increments (this is a grassroots fundraising at its grassiest)
- Farheen doing all this work while fasting for Ramadan, for cryin’ out loud (give what you’d spend on lattes this week, ‘k?)
