MN Local BIPOC Elected Leaders Network

Statewide Minnesotan elected leaders of color are forming a peer learning network to support one another personally and professionally as they work to advance equitable climate and resilience solutions in their city and county that benefit everyone.

Over the past three years, more than 30 BIPOC Elected Leaders have regularly participated in network zoom calls to share insights and mutual support – from Austin to Brooklyn Park, to Richfield, to Minnetonka, to Bemidji

Core team – Council Member Lynette Lynette Dumalag, St. Louis Park, Council Member Sherry Pugh, Mound, Council Member Kissy Coakley, Minnetonka, Council Member Audrey Thayer, Bemidji, Council Member Yakasah Wehyee, Falcon Heights
