Why care about local politics?
Woof, it's rough out there.
For progressive people, marginalized people, people of color, women. For many of us. It seems like the news is a never-ending stream of bad news.
But we believe that we can use our city to pave a different path. With less than a few thousand votes, we can help shape Minneapolis into one of the most progressive cities in America.
Voter turnout in municipal races is low. The status quo counts on young, progressive people not showing up. Some folks who hold local offices have been there as long as we've been alive. Their views are not our views. We deserve representatives that will fight for us.
We have better choices this year than we've ever had. All we have to do is show up.
Can you do that?
