Born in a rural village in Ethiopia, Amane has overcome extraordinary challenges and dedicated her life to organizing for a more just world. Running with the urgency required to meet these political times, TakeAction Minnesota’s member-led political committee proudly endorses Amane’s candidacy for Congress. Make no mistake–this primary matters.

These are 4 reasons to join us and vote for Amane Badhasso by August 9:

  1. Primary elections like the 4th Congressional District race are key to a better politics. Primary elections determine who is on the ballot in November. In our broken, two-party political system, we can make a difference in our politics by showing up strong in primaries. When we change our elected leaders within a party, we disrupt stagnation and change priorities.
  2. Amane is an organizer with vision. Bold leadership from candidates like Amane Badhasso can make a difference in the district, in Congress, and in the Country–especially when they are committed to year-round action, organizing, and inclusive power-building. In a progressive district like CD4, Congressional leadership can and should expand beyond the walls of Congress to the community.
  3. Progressive districts deserve progressive leaders. Any chance of passing bold solutions from the Green New Deal to Medicare for All and student debt cancellation requires bold, progressive leadership at every opportunity and especially in the bluest districts and states. Amane is building a multi-racial movement that reflects the dreams and concerns of the 4th district and has proven she’s ready to lead on the progressive agenda we all need.
  4. Amane is expanding what is politically possible.  Amane understands that seats of power belong to the people, not to politicians. No political office was meant to be held for life. Amane is not afraid to challenge the status quo to reset priorities. This competitive race is breathing life into our democracy, and expanding what’s politically possible.
