TakeAction Minnesota, a grassroots progressive group, said no matter who is in charge, policymakers could put all Minnesotans on equal footing if they invested in such areas as child care and public assistance programs.

Trisha Harms, communications director for the group, said it is not only about helping people survive, but also allowing them to thrive.

“The richest Americans are accumulating more wealth than ever before, while the rest of us, especially low-income Americans, are actually getting poorer,” Harms asserted.
