Friday, March 05, 2021

Dear Neighbors, 

On Saturday, March 13 at 11am, I’ll be facilitating a Community Conversation on Housing and Mental Health along with my fellow District 59 legislators and guest speakers.

Agbaje Town Hall

We’ll be joined by Commissioner Jennifer Ho of Minnesota Housing, Jackie Coleman from North Point Health & Wellness Center, and more to be announced, who will help drive our discussion on the intersection between housing and mental health.

We’ll be holding the event on Zoom and also streaming live to my Facebook page. You can join us on the Zoom call and submit questions ahead of time for legislators and guests here.

Minnesota, and certainly our community, is experiencing a housing crisis. Housing insecurity can often exacerbate poor mental health - leading to a cycle made only worse by the ongoing pandemic and current events. While the goal of this conversation is to provide information and resources to our community, I would also like to take a moment during it to discuss the Derek Chauvin trial, and the impact it will have on all of us. 

I hope you’re able to make it, and as always, feel free to reach out with any questions or comments you may have at either (651) 296-8659 or I look forward to hearing from you!



Esther Agbaje

State Representative
