Many people alive today were alive when Jim Crow was in full force. And when these same people were born, former slaves were still alive. We are not that far removed from this history. It is the truth, and it should be taught.

We laid the foundation for the progress we’re seeing today with my American Rescue Plan. It put money in working families’ pockets, helped keep small businesses going, and vaccinated millions. We're moving in the right direction, now it's time to build back better.

Minneapolis, this is a good time for healing & reflection. Q2 didn’t win, but it gathered substantial votes. “No”voters prevailed, but many also want meaningful reform. So, let’s get to it. Let’s pass what we agree on, and make policing in Minneapolis effective and humane.
Three years ago today at the state capitol, I had the honor to join @IlhanMN, former Minneapolis mayor Betsy Hodges, and esteemed others in endorsing @keithellison for Attorney General of Minnesota, helping to elect him to office and assure his support for marijuana legalization

Congratulations @jeremiah4north! Our Ward 5 Councilmember.
Methane is responsible for over a quarter of the climate change we’re experiencing today.  This commitment is crucial to fighting the climate crisis. I’m glad to see @POTUS get this done. twitter.com/NBCNews/status…

“We're paying the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs. The pharmaceutical industry has spent hundreds of millions to ensure Americans pay 10x more for some drugs than the Canadians or the Mexicans do. That fight continues.” - @BernieSanders truthout.org/articles/sande…

Happy Election Day, MN! Grateful to live in state that has instituted covid protocols and best practices, so I was safely able to vote curbside and hand my ballot to someone in full PPE. If you haven’t voted yet, today is your chance. Visit mnvotes.org for more info!

Happy Election Day! Thank you Imam Mohammad Omar, aka Sheikh Arab, of Dar Al-Farooq community and the Somalí Business Association. Vote for @jeremiah4north today.
Our tradition is filled with stories of ancestors who stood up to fear and oppression for what's right. Now is time for us to be those ancestors, and choose a new path towards justice in Minneapolis. #YesOn2 twitter.com/keithellison/s…

@keithellison gets it!👌Decades of industry consolidation created a meat production system that is built to break. To protect workers, farmers, & eaters, leaders need to restructure this industry to greatly reduce the concentration of risk. openmarketsinstitute.org/publications/r…ftwitter.com/leah_nylen/sta…V

We often look back in history admiringly at courageous leaders who stood for progress & justice - despite opposition. In midst of the battle, their courage and vision is not always obvious to all. How can we muster vision, faith courage to act when it matters most? #voteyesonQ2
The redline shows what ranchers get for the beef they produce; the blue line shows what the big companies charge consumers. The gap is what the oligopolists take for themselves. Unfair.
At an event by @econliberties and @NFUtweets, Minnesota AG @keithellison notes that 26% of farm subsidies go to the biggest AG companies. 77% of them go to just 10% of companies. 50 people on the Forbes richest people list got farm subsidies, he says

A few have said, “you’re supporting ⁦@jeremiah4north⁩ b/ he’s your son.” Actually, no. My beloved Minneapolis needs a dynamic change agent on the council in these challenging times. Jeremiah’s a problem solver, unafraid to dig in and find answers. I like that.
Many thanks to the wonderful Minnesota State Baptist Convention for awarding me recognition for Lifetime Achievement. Also, congratulations to my dear friend of many decades, Rev. Jerry McAffee.
Van Gogh hanging out at Boom Island. Very cool.

This is wild. Anti-trust is absolutely essential in the media space. Like right now. reuters.com/investigates/s…
Coaching officers is a good idea. Except when it’s misused to remove requirements to discipline for misconduct. That’s not reform. That’s a ruse for hiding a policy of impunity for misconduct. Very troubling. It’s fair to demand answers. minnesotareformer.com/2021/10/28/may…
The irony of removing paid leave to placate a man is not lost on any of us whose family planning had to include banking sick leave and never taking a day off for over a year just so you could pay your bills while caring for a newborn.

Joe Manchin represents .5% of US population but just killed paid family leave supported by 80% of Americans. Shockingly undemocratic

Grateful to longtime IMAN leader Kamran Bajwa for hosting several of our Green ReEntry leaders at @Kirkland_Ellis for a productive conversation with our brother @keithellison. We discussed concrete steps towards criminal justice reform and ending the carceral state at all levels.

On this fateful day—3 years since a white supremacist walked into the Tree of Life Synagogue and stole the lives of 11 worshippers in a deadly anti-Semitic attack—I want to ask you to pause and think about the need to stand up firm against hate. We’re all in this together.

The opposition is organized + resourced, but shifty in articulating their solutions & dishonest about their positions on important issues. We don’t do that here. I’ve been out here & will continue to be with my community, fighting for sustainable change. That’s the truth. (3/8)

The election next week in Minneapolis is no less than a fight of hope vs. fear, of maintaining a broken status quo that killed George Floyd or taking the path of reform. I want to share some of my thoughts to cut through the dark money and misinformation.
