Diversity in Politics

underwritten by Vote Run Lead and Women Winning

Above right: Congressional District 8 candidate Jenn Schultz, who is seeking to replace anti-choice, pro-Trump incumbent Pete Stauber, visited the Adam and Brandon Child Safety Center in Brainerd.

The center was created for supervised visitation of children and abusive parents after 4- and 5-year-old brothers were killed by their father in 1996.

We had deep and insightful conversations in Brainerd Monday with staff at the Crow Wing County Jail — about mental health and substance abuse needs of the majority of its clients — as well as the staff and board of the domestic violence shelter that serves clients across hundreds of miles in multiple counties.

We also followed Rachel Bohman in Mankato and Rochester this past weekend (bottom photo, by Ellen M. Perrault) to learn about the values she is offering in a large southern Minnesota region represented by anti-choice incumbent U.S. Rep Brad Finstad.

These stories will be featured in our June "Hometown Values & Vision" issue thanks to underwriters and Badass members.
