The Minnesota House Select Committee on Racial Justice held a hearing Tuesday to approve recommendations of ways to combat racial disparities they hope will be considered by the legislature. St. Paul Representative Rena Moran co-chaired the committee and said their goal was to “dismantle racism.”
“This has been a really time-consuming effort. This has been an inspiring effort. And I would say in many ways this has been a much-needed effort and process.”
The report included seven pages of recommendations including cash bail reform, mandating so-called “anti-racist” training for teachers, banning flavored tobacco, and allocating more federal dollars to improve low-income housing.
