2011 Legislative Report Card

2011 Legislative Report Card

Ratings: (0)|Views: 112 |Likes:
The news about racial disparities in education, unemployment, health, and incarceration may seem overwhelming. But shutting down is not the answer. We do not need government to pull back. Instead, we need government to step up and lead for racial equity. Now, more than ever, with the growing racial disparities in our communities, we must pay attention to how race interacts with opportunities in Minnesota. We need courageous and creative leaders working to dismantle those disparities and build racial justice.

Here is a starting point: Organizing Apprenticeship Project’s sixth Legislative Report Card on Racial Equity. This report holds Minnesota’s legislators accountable for pursuing racial equity through the leadership we—the many communities in Minnesota—granted them. We are asking our legislators to lead the cause of closing racial disparities that cut across all areas of community life. We are asking them to work with communities of color to build an inclusive Minnesota.
