Spending my Sunday with the most important people in Minnesota - the young and brilliant scholars of this state. These scholars from Worthington are future artists, lawyers, business leaders, and engineers. I want them to see themselves represented in the halls of gov’t.

Bayard Rustin, hero of the 1963 March on Washington, was a gay man who was unapologetically himself when that wasn't easy. It got him convicted of a "crime" in 1953 that opponents used against him his whole career. CA has now righted that injustice. Good.

The fed govt under Trump wants to make it easier for predatory lenders to rip you off & make it harder for you to afford your life. I didn’t get elected the People’s Lawyer to sit back and let that happen, and I’m not.

Listening to a packed room of dairy farmers in Greenwald, MN talk about the crisis farmers are facing and how we can work together to rebalance the scales for small-and-mid-size farmers. Please reach out and share your story if you are a farmer. We want to hear from you.

Among the Jews we mourn on , some were turned away by the US when they were poor, persecuted & had nowhere else to turn. Today SCOTUS said the Trump Admin can deny immigrants admission based on wealth. They’re not exactly the same—but they’re both wrong.
