Our diversity is one of our greatest strengths. We must affirmatively advance equity, civil rights, racial justice, and equal opportunity for all, including people of color and others who have been historically underserved, and marginalized.
To address these inequities, we must undo discriminatory policy and pass legislation that centers those who have been adversely affected by persistent poverty or inequality including Indigenous and Native American persons, Black, Latino, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and other persons of color; members of religious minorities; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) persons; and persons with disabilities.
Equality in pay and in the workplace are issues that affect all Minnesota women, and we need to address them head on. We need to fight for equal pay for women, because there is no reason why a woman today should be making less than their male counterpart.
We must promote fairness, equality, equity, and rights across multiple aspects of society, including economic, educational, and workforce opportunities to provide everyone with the opportunity to reach their full potential.
