Follow Through for Justice!
Bills to Support!
The trial of Derek Chauvin is over and the sentence has been pronounced. However, the fight for justice is NOT over. For lasting change, we all need to keep moving forward and use our energy, skills, talents, and access for the extremely important follow-through efforts. We stand with Minnesotans and all humans who demand Justice for George Floyd. We lend our support by reading, commenting upon, and speaking with our elected officials about the following bills during this year's state legislative session.
