Support Nellie Stone Johnson bust at the MN Capitol

X post in Labor & GD


Together we can help labor establish its rightful place in our Capitol

We have the opportunity to permanently remind Capitol visitors, including school children, of the important role labor has played in our state.

The Legislature and the Governor authorized placing a bust of Nellie Stone Johnson, a nationally-renowned labor and civil rights leader, in a prominent spot in the Capitol. But we must raise the matching funds for the first bust in our Capitol recognizing Nellie Stone Johnsonís legacy of firsts:

The first prominent labor leader
The first woman activist/leader
The first education leader
The first Minnesota-born African-American civil rights leader
If we all contribute, we can make sure that Nellie Stone Johnson ad her legacy are recognized in our Capitol.

Please make checks to the NSJ Capitol Fund and send them to:
Union Bank and Trust

312 Central Ave SE

Minneapolis, MN 55414

Thank you for helping to bring labor history to life!
