I am amazed at the energy Ward 13 neighbors are bringing to this campaign. Together, we are making huge strides towards a more peaceful and equitable city.
Thank you to everyone who came by on Saturday for our field kickoff and picnic. We had a blast door-knocking in the Linden Hills neighborhood, meeting new neighbors, and engaging in productive conversations. I’m looking forward to next Saturday when we’ll be door-knocking in the Kenny neighborhood at 1:00 PM. If you’ve never door-knocked before, or would like a refresher, our staff will walk you through the process. It’s a lot easier than you think! Please sign up here and I’ll see you then.
After the door-knocking and picnic on Saturday, I headed to St. Paul for The March for All Stolen Lives, organized by Families Supporting Families Against Police Violence. We marched three miles to the State Capitol and heard from families impacted by police violence. Showing up to marches and events is something I strongly believe in. You see the ripple effect of how a tragedy impacts parents, spouses, children and loved ones long after the media attention fades. It is our responsibility to stand up against injustice where we see it. Attending marches and events is one way to do that.
There are also plenty of other ways to learn and support our community through donations, mutual aid, volunteering for political campaigns or organizations, and more. I encourage you to find some way to get involved.
