Enacting Effective Policy
Building an Economy for Everyone
Minnesota has one of the nation's most vibrant economies. Unfortunately, we all don't share equally in the benefits. Ilhan will fight for a Minnesota where everyone has a chance to succeed.
Closing the Opportunity Gap
Education is the key to our children's future and yet racial disparities in our state are among the worst in the nation. We need a holistic cradle-to-career approach to improving our education system.
Advancing Equity for All
Ilhan is dedicated to advancing an agenda focused on economic, social, racial, and environmental justice. If elected, she will be the first Black Muslim woman in office in the United States, if not North America.
Making Higher Ed Affordable & Accessible
Higher education is already unaffordable and freezing tuition rates is not enough, it is imperative that we start making serious efforts to substantially decrease tuition.
Protecting Our Environment
We must take meaningful steps to address the real threat of climate change and we must do it now. We cannot wait.
Criminal Justice Reform
We must work to reduce criminal sentences, reform the default use of incarceration, and shift our criminal justice system towards one that embraces rehabilitation and increased screening for mental health issues.
This is an issue that needs immediate attention. Too many people are being shot dead by police day after day. We must implement a series of organizational and operations changes.
