The greater the challenge. The stronger our voice. We can make change together. 

At the start of 2021, CURE never could have imagined the current situation—still fighting a global pandemic, corresponding economic crisis, witnessing our state and country finally starting to grapple with our long history of systemic racism and our every pressing urgency to respond to our climate crises.   

Instead of pausing CURE’s work or making it seem irrelevant, the state of the world has made our job even more important. The speed and volume of issues we are tackling have increased and are even more pressing.   


CURE’s major work in 2021: 

  • Standing with rural communities to end racism and grow justice, equity, and inclusion for all Minnesotans.  
  • Working on issues facing Rural Electric Cooperatives from protecting member-owners' lifesaving access to electricity (even if they cannot pay) to relieving co-ops of expensive coal plants to save members money. 
  • Giving a voice to the rural support for a Minnesota Clean Cars Standard that will help reduce our biggest source of climate pollution, make the air we breathe cleaner, and save us money every day. 
  • Collaborating with other area partners for the “We Are Water” and “Why Treaties Matter” exhibits to increase knowledge and awareness around issues of water and Indigenous rights across Minnesota.
  • Connecting individuals and families with nature through our Tallgrass Prairie BioBlitz 
  • Minnesota Master Naturalist Prairie & Potholes course, and our Freshwater Mussel Field Day. 
  • Saying No to Carbon Pipelines—a False Climate Solution that harm rural communities


These are why CURE asks for your support because there is still so much work to do despite our progress. In these turbulent times, we ask you to give what you can to support what you believe in. We do big things and make lasting change TOGETHER.
