• The 2009 Report Card looks at the real consequences of budget cuts, stimulus investment and unallotment on Minnesotans and Minnesotans of color. The report highlights major decisions and how those decisions impact Minnesota's disparities by race, unemployment, poverty and struggling geographical areas.
Even in tough economic times, Minnesotans should expect lawmakers and the governor to take a strong stand against racial and economic disparities, by leading on issues of racial equity in Minnesota, OAP spokespersons said in a press release last week announcing the Report Card presentation 10:00 AM, Thurs., Feb. 18th, Room 125, State Capitol.
Last month OAP received the Social Justice Award from Gov. Tim Pawlenty's Commission on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The award recognizes OAP leadership in helping Minnesota adopt policies that move the state toward an equitable multiracial society.
