CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS

Protecting our rights

A woman has a right to do whatever she feels is best for her and her body. Nobody has the right to make that decision for someone else. Women, elderly, and children also have every right to get equal pay for equal work.

Everyone has a right to identify as it fits their lifestyle.

Families should be able to come together after a birth of a child and both partners should be able to take an equal amount of time off work. There should be equity in the relationship of maternal and paternal leave.

Every child has the right to a public education and I do not believe that we should turn our school board over to mayoral control. School board, Parks, and City Council should stay separate but collaborate for a holistic approach to our city governance. It is a matrix and not a solid line structure that we operate under.

Beyond $15. I want a study to look at what a basic income would mean for Minneapolitans. Job automation is increasing and addressing wages is a start but over time it is not a sustainable model. In addition, we must focus on the cost of living and operating in this city if we really want Minneapolis to be a city that is truly livable.
