You Are Invited: Saturday, April 6 | 10am - Noon | Hospitality Hall
You are invited to a conversation with Aisha Gomez, our Minnesota State Representative for District 62B in Minneapolis. Join us as we engage with Representative Gomez on how we are going to create a caring economy where every Minnesotan family - no matter what they look like, where they come from, or how much money they have - can thrive; and build a robust multi-racial democracy that recognizes the dignity of every person. We will lean into our values as we discuss Health Care, Clean Energy, Immigration, and Paid Family Leave. Free and open to the public!
