People of Color and Indigenous Caucus
I was proud to stand with my colleagues as the People of Color and Indigenous (POCI) Caucus announced our 2020 legislative agenda yesterday.
One of the things I focused on is the significant disparities in jobs and economic security Minnesota faces - while 6% of white children grow up in poverty, that number jumps to 16% of Asian, 23% of Hispanic, 33% of Black, and 39% of American Indian children. All Minnesotans deserve to live safe, healthy and prosperous lives.
