TakeAction Minnesota Education Fund and Take Action Minnesota is an alliance of organizations and individuals committed to achieving social, racial and economic justice. Take Action is a growing statewide organization with twenty-six dues-paying member organizations, together representing more than 250,000 Minnesotans, and more than 11,000 individual dues paying members. TakeAction joined National People's Action in 2010.
In 2011, TakeAction successfully held KDWB Radio, a Clear Channel affiliate, accountable after they aired a racist parody of the Hmong community which resulted in a PSA on the contributions of the Hmong community being aired on 7 Clear Channel stations. In addition to that success, Take Action launched a public campaign against exorbitant HMO profits which resulted in UCare returning $30 million in Medicaid overpayments to the state of Minnesota and Governer Dayton issuing executive orders to limit HMO's profits. In 2010, TakeActions work spearheading a coalition around the Health Insurance Exchange- a policy issue that will most dramatically expand health coverge in Minnesota--results in early Medicaid expansion in our state. Moreover, TakeAction has activated their membership across the state in response to voter suppression efforts including generating e-actions in 132 of 134 state legislative district and thousands of petition signatures.
