Our Government Relations team attended FairVote Minnesota’s Symposium on Voting Rights: Our Past, Our Present, Our Future at the University of St. Thomas this week. The event brought together a diverse and influential gathering of thought leaders, students, community members, and political figures including Governor Tim Walz, Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan, and Attorney General Keith Ellison.
Participants engaged in meaningful conversations that looked back at our history and the evolution of voting rights, tackled the challenges our democracy currently faces, explored critical reforms and opportunities, and discussed how we can work together to build a more representative and inclusive future for our state and our country.
It was a great event to start Black History Month as we work towards building a more inclusive, multi-racial democracy in our state and for our future.
