Mayoral hopefuls speak to young people of color on their plans to undo racial injustice over the next 4 years.
A coalition of youth and community leaders will gather at Sabathani Community Center on Thursday, June 6th at 6:00pm to hear from candidates in the 2013 Minneapolis Mayoral Election. In one generation, the majority of Minneapolis residents will be people of color; yet today, the city has some of the worst racial inequities in the country. This community forum will give the candidates an opportunity to share their solutions with the youth who are being impacted the most. All 2013 mayoral candidates have confirmed attendance: Mark Andrew, Jackie Cherryhomes, Betsy Hodges, Doug Mann, Don Samuels, Gary Schiff, Jim Thomas, and Cam Winton.
