PROTECT YOUR FREEDOMS
I WILL PROTECT THE FREEDOMS OF THOSE I SERVE
I will defend your freedoms, I will defend your right to live free of fear of persecution, and I will fight injustice wherever it occurs. I will fight any injustice on the basis of race, ethnicity, sex, or religion. As a black woman who grew up in segregated inner-city Milwaukee, I understand what it is like to be mistreated because of the color of your skin, your sex, or how much money you have. I will protect every women’s reproductive freedom. I had a child as a teenager. I raised my daughter as a single parent. I understand what is at stake. I worked two jobs as a nurse while raising my daughter because I feared losing one at any moment for any reason. Because of this, my fellow nurses and I tried to form a union to protect against unfair treatment, working conditions, and unjust firing. I will protect your freedom to work in safe, fair, and just working conditions. I serve you, the people of Hennepin County, and in this role, I will put your well-being above all else.
I WILL PROTECT YOUR FREEDOMS BY:
Protecting a woman's right to choose
Fighting religious, racist, and sexist discrimination
Working to ensure healthy, safe, and fair working conditions
