The COVID 19 pandemic has exposed deep disparities in our society and the need for competent political leadership. Civic unrest in the wake of George Floyd’s death has mobilized a citizenry that is ready to effect positive change. Minneapolis residents, especially youth, are ready to roll up their sleeves, lean in and work for justice and peace. The key element needed to channel their passion into action is political engagement.
Our vision is for an inclusive democracy where voters are informed, engaged and empowered to make their voices heard. We are committed to addressing inequality, bias and racism that has disenfranchised Blacks, Latinos, women and others.
