Send Ilhan Back to Congress

We believe in a Minnesota and an America where everyone can live joyful, dignified lives; where people can thrive – not just survive. At TakeAction Minnesota, we believe in government by and for the people.

Right now, we face unprecedented challenges: a global pandemic, an economy in free fall, the public health crisis of systemic racism and police brutality, a looming climate emergency, a housing crisis impacting millions of Americans.

This is not the time for half measures or small steps. We need bold action, and we need it now.

This year, residents of the 5th Congressional District have a choice: we can choose to return to the half-measures that have failed our communities for generations or we can rise up and support a bold vision that meets this moment.

For our members the choice is clear: it’s time to re-elect Ilhan Omar to Congress.

Bold Solutions

In her time in D.C., Congresswoman Omar has been a relentless advocate for policies that give power back to working people. She’s been a champion for justice-focused solutions like the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, and canceling student debt. She also introduced the Rent and Mortgage Cancellation Act, calling for the freeze of rent and mortgage at a time when more than a third of Americans are on the verge of eviction.

Congresswoman Omar truly understands the needs of working people in this country – and she’s fighting for the bold solutions we need.

People-Centered Democracy

In her fight for bold, progressive policies for the 5th District and across the nation, Congresswoman Omar remains deeply connected to our community. From City Hall to the state Legislature and the halls of Congress, Ilhan puts people at the center of policymaking. Whether she’s holding town halls with her constituents, walking the picket lines in support of striking workers, marching the streets with protesters, or meeting with West African immigrants when the president threatens to deport them – our Congresswoman shows up. Ilhan doesn’t just fight for us. She fights with us.

Building the Movement for Justice

In the most progressive House district in the state, we deserve a member of Congress who is broadening the scope of justice in a multi-racial democracy. In Congress, Ilhan’s deep understanding of how our struggles are tied together is helping build a broader movement for racial, social, economic, and environmental justice. Congresswoman Omar is making more possible for the 5th district, and for the better future we all deserve.
