WHAT WE UNDERSTAND THAT THE DOMINANT POPULATION MAY HAVE NEVER GONE MAYBE DON’T EVEN KNOW THIS HISTORY MAY NOT EVEN KNOW OR UNDERSTAND THE LANGUAGE THAT WE’RE USING AROUND RACE JUSTICE SO IT’S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT WE STARTED OFF BY GIVING DEFINITIONS. TO TO WORRIES THERE IS BEING YOU BUY DIFFERENT ENTITIES

RIGHT THIS YEAR HAS BEEN THAT YOU KNOW SO MANY DIFFERENT MEANINGS FOR SO MANY DIFFERENT PEOPLE.

WE TALKED ABOUT THE FACT THAT YOU KNOW TALKING ABOUT RACE TALKING ABOUT RACISM WITHIN THE STATE WITHIN THIS COUNTRY IS A VERY VERY DIFFICULT CONVERSATIONS TO BE HAD AND THE REASON THAT THE CONVERSATIONS ARE SO THIS BECAUSE THERE ARE THINGS THAT ARE DEEPLY WRONG THESE WOULD NOT BE HARD CONVERSATIONS IF THERE WERE NOT ISSUES IF THEY’RE NOT ARE ARE DEEPLY DIFFICULT AND SO I REALLY JUST WANT TO TAKE THIS MOMENT TO THANK EVERYONE WHO HAS BEEN A PART OF THAT COMMITTEE AND VOLUNTEERING AND A GREEN TO ENGAGE IN UNCOMFORTABLE CONVERSATIONS AND I ALSO WANT THINK THE FOLKS VOTED IN SUPPORT OF THE HOUSE RESOLUTION WHICH DECLARED RACISM AS A PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS AND WHICH ULTIMATELY WAS THE VEHICLE FOR BEGINNING THIS HOUSE SELECT COMMITTEE ON ON RACIAL JUSTICE AND I ALSO WANT TO TAKE A MOMENT TO YOU THANK CLOSE I THANK BOTH VICE CHAIR; GAY MATH REPRESENTATIVE OR GOLF OR ON RISING TO HOUSE FLOOR AND OF HOUSE RESOLUTION WINE WHEN IT WAS PRESENT AS WELL THE WORK THAT WE HAVE DONE AS A COMMITTEE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE WITH ARE STRONG AND STAFF SO I DO ALSO WANT TO TAKE A MOMENT TO ALL OF THE STAFF THAT HAPPENED I SIGNED ON TO TO COMMITTEE LANDY AND A ALL PAT MCCORMICK AND HIS MERRIE MILE AND CALI LEA LANE AND THEN THEY THEY MAKE US LOOK AND THEY SUPPORT US AND MANY WAYS IN ORDER TO YOU TO BE ABLE TO TO BE FOCUSED ON THE WORK THAT WE ARE THAT WE ARE THAT WE ARE SENT HERE TO DO WITH AGAIN THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR GIVING YOUR TIME TO PARTICIPATE COM WITH THE COMMITTEE AND I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO WALKING THROUGH THE DOCUMENTS AND HAVING A RICH DISCUSSION TODAY >> SO WITH THAT YOU KNOW OUR ORIGINAL PLAN WAS TO HAVE THIS LAST LAST WEEK WE’RE HERE WE ARE IN THE WEEK OF CHRISTMAS SO I DO WANT TO THANK ALSO HERE TODAY TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SMEARING IT MEANS A LOT AND ISN’T JUST REPRESENTATIVE GAVE US SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THE NAVY RESOLUTION AND HOW DISTRICTS MAY COMMUNICATE TO BE AND LISTEN IF YOU CAN MAYBE PULL UP THE DOCUMENTS. >> FOR US >> THAT WOULD BE HELPFUL THERE WE GO >> COULD ARGUE ABLE TO STREAMS

I CAN SEE IT MEMBERS OR IS EVERYONE ABLE TO SEE THE SCREEN. YES; 19 YES; OKAY CAN WE SLIDE DOWN GO TO THE SELECT COMMITTEE MEETINGS SO I JUST WANT TO START OFF HERE BY CS REMINDING US THAT THE SLICK YOU KNOW I SEE YOUR HEARINGS FOCUS ON PROVIDING DEFINITIONS. HISTORICAL FRAMEWORK IN OCCURRING DATA RELATED TO THE IMPACT SYSTEMIC RACISM AIR RACE RELATED DISPARITIES IN THE HOUSE. EDUCATION. HOUSING PUBLIC SAFETY. IT’S ECONOMICS WE INVITED SOME INSTANT SOME EXPERTS AND RESEARCHERS FROM MINNESOTA AND FROM ACROSS THE UNITED STATES TO TESTIFY THAT PUBLIC HEARINGS TOGETHER TESTIMONY FROM INTEREST COMMUNITY MEMBERS AROUND THE STATE; YOU KNOW WE ALWAYS WANT TO HEAR FROM COMMUNITY MEMBERS OF VOICES OF OUR COMMUNITIES DRY. BUT IT’S NOT JUST LATEST TO COME UP HERE. INTO WHY CONSTITUENCY SO WE ALWAYS WANT TO MAKE SURE WE CAN AT PROVIDE THAT TYPE OF OPPORTUNITY WE ALSO KNOW THAT PEOPLE ARE BUSY WITH THEIR LIVES. DEALING WITH CRISIS THEY DEAL WITH COVID THEY’RE DEALING WITH FAMILIES AND NOT EVERYONE IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK WENDY AND SO YOU KNOW WE ASKED WHY WRITTEN TESTIMONY; YOU KNOW FOR EMAILS. PHONE CALL AND WE ALSO HAD ITS SPACE TO GUESS MAY TURN PEOPLE WHEN PEOPLE ARE TO TALK TO US WE HAVE THIS CONVERSATION OTHER PEOPLE THAT IS OUTSIDE OF THE COMMITTEE BEST THE WORK OF BEING A CULT HERE YOU KNOW I WORK SEEMED NEVER END IT. IT WAS THIS A CONSISTENT. PROCESS OF ENGAGING AND LISTENING AND LEARNING IN GATHERING INFORMATION SO WHY DON’T WE GO LISTEN SO A LITTLE BIT THERE THE MEETING ONE WAS ON SEPTEMBER 22ND THAT FOCUS ON WHAT IS RACISM THE MATERNAL MORTALITY AND MORBIDITY REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH WAS MEETING TO ALL 7 29 FOR AROUND ACES WHICH IS CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCES AND RACISM WE WENT ON TO MEETING 3 WHEN WE LOOKED HISTORICAL CHARM; STILL THE TRAUMA OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLE IN MINNESOTA IN STORE TRAUMA OF AFRICAN AMERICANS IN MINNESOTA MEETING WAS OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE SPACE FOR PUBLIC TESTIMONY ON TO TESTIFY WHEN THE IMPACT COMMUNITIES IN MINNESOTA. MEETING 5 20 WHAT IS THE NEXT WATCH AN FROM THE TWIN CITY PUBLIC TELEVISION DOCTOR DOCUMENTARY. ORANGE THE AND ALSO TESTIMONY FROM DOCTOR SEUSS COREY WHEN THE ECONOMIC OF RACISM VERY VERY INFORMATIVE INFORMATION SO HERE WE ARE TODAY ON DECEMBER 22ND IS WE WALK THROUGH THIS DOCUMENT AND THEN IN YOUR DISCUSSION AROUND WHAT WE HAVE BEFORE US I’M GOING GO TO SOME OF THESE DEFINITIONS BUT I WANT TO I WORK I LIKE MORE THAN BECAUSE I THINK IT’S REALLY CRISIS THE FOUNDATION IN THIS DOCUMENT THAT WE’RE GOING THAT WE HAVE BEFORE US IT’S ALL WANT TO JUST START WITH RACISM I READ A LITTLE BIT NOT RACISM. I THINK THIS IS LIKE REALLY IMPORTANT IT IS WILL COMPENSATE FOR CONVERSATION ALL RACING THEM TO DERAIL WHEN PEOPLE ARE USING TERMINOLOGY IN DIFFERENT WAYS A KEY CHALLENGE TO EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION ABOUT RACE IS TO PEOPLE FROM THE INNER VISUALIZE DEFINITION OF RACISM TO A FOCUS ON THIS IT’S SYSTEMIC INTERPRETATION OF RACISM ACCORDING TO CASEY FOUNDATION TO ELIMINATE RACISM WE NEED TO AND WE MUST NAME IT. FRAME IT EXPLAIN IT THE FOUNDATION SPEAKS TO IMPORTANCE OF LANGUAGE TO VISIT GHANA. DESCRIBE CONDITIONS. IN OUTCOMES AND IDENTIFIED ARE WHAT CAUSE IT’S IN EQUITIES TO CREATE A PLATFORM FOR QUITE MADE IT WORK TOYS. LIBERAL OUTCOME SO ACCORDING TO THE PUBLIC ELSE ASSOCIATION RACISM IS THE FIGHT IS SYSTEM OF STRUCTURING OPPORTUNITIES AND EXCITE ASSIGNING VALUE BASED ON A SOCIAL INTERPRETATION OF HOW ONE LOOKS WHICH IS WHAT WE CALL RACE THAT DISADVANTAGE AND SOME INDIVIDUALS IN THE COMMUNITIES IT ON FAIRLY ADVANTAGES INDIVIDUALS AND COMMUNITIES

AND AT THE BASE OF ALL OF THIS IS SAPPING THE STRENGTH OF THE WHOLE SOCIETY THROUGH THE WASTE OF HUMAN RESOURCES. RACISM IS A SYSTEM NOT AN INDIVIDUAL CAROL TO OR PERSONAL MORRIS TELL ME I WANT TO SUGGEST HERE IN THAT RACISM IS A SYSTEM NOT IN INDIVIDUAL CARE TO OR PERSONAL MORE SHELLEY AND I SAY THAT RECOGNIZING THAT PEOPLE CAN BE RACIST BUT AS LEGISLATORS WE WANT TO LOOK AT THIS BOOKSTORE PEACE THE RACE OF THE SYSTEM IT’S A SYSTEM OF HOW THIS WORKS THERE’S OPPORTUNITIES SUCH EDUCATION HOUSING JOB JUST MISSED AND ASSIGNS VALUE OR WORDS WERE THE UNWORTHY MISS FOR POTENTIAL OR FULL IS ON FULL OF MENACE BASED ON THE SO-CALLED RACE THE SOCIAL INTERPRETATION OF HOW WE LOOK WE BROUGHT IN DOCTOR COME YOU’RE A JONES SAID THE SYSTEM OF JUSTICE THIS THE SYSTEM ARE RACING FROM JUST 3 CRITICAL IMPACTS RACISM UNFAIRLY DISADVANTAGE OF SOME INDIVIDUALS AND COMMUNITY OR WORSE WHEN WE THINK WE’LL TALK ABOUT RACISM AT ALL IN THIS COUNTRY THIS IS WHAT WE SEE BUT IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT WAS UNFAIR IT HAS A RECIPROCAL. AND AND THE SECOND IMPACT RACISM IT UNFAIRLY ADVANCES OF INDIVIDUALS. AND COMMUNITY THIS IS THE WHOLE NOTION WHITE SOMETIMES WE HEAR THIS WORD ABOUT LIKE THERE WAS NOTHING THEY CAN DO IT JUST ON OR YOU GET IT IT’S BECAUSE OF THE CALAIS JUST BE IT. THAT WE HARDLY EVER TALK ABOUT IN THIS NATION AND THE 3RD AND THE MOST PROFOUND IMPACT IS THAT RACISM IS SAPPING THE STRENGTH OF THE WHOLE SOCIETY BY WASTING RESOURCES YOU’RE RIGHT WHEN THEY’RE BRINGING IN SOME OF OUR COMMUNITIES IS IGNORED AND WE’RE NOT INVESTING IN THE IS A CASE IN THE RIGHT KEY IS BECAUSE WE DON’T THINK THERE’S GENIUS IN THE BARRELS OR IN THE GHETTOS ON THE RESERVATION THAT IS SAPPING THE STRENGTH OLD SOCIETY. IT’S SHORT THE DEFINITION OF RACISM IS NOT CENTER ON A NARROW INTERPRETATION OF RACES AND WHO’S NOT THE DEFINITION IS MORE COMPREHENSIVE ME FOCUSED ON THE SYSTEMIC IMPACT OF RACISM WHICH IS HAS A HARMFUL IMPACT ON ENTIRE STATE AND NATION WE ARE ALL EVERY IMPACTED BY THE SYSTEM OR A SYSTEM. AND WE ALL PLAY A ROLE. IN ADDRESSING THE AND VARIOUS IMPACTS AND BEAR WITH ME ON THESE DEFINITIONS SO WE HAVE INTERNALIZED RACISM WHICH IS THE PRIVATE RAY SHOW POLICE HAILED BY IN WITH INDIVIDUALS THE WAY WE’LL SORT SOCIAL MESSAGING ABOUT RACE AND ADOPT THEM IS A PERSON IIF. BY SAYS PRESIDENT SAYS ARE ALL WITHIN THE RIM OF INTERNAL LIES RACISM FOR PEOPLE OF COLOR. LIKE MYSELF INTERNALIZED OPPRESSION CANTON BOB BELIEVING IN NEGATIVE MESSAGES ABOUT ONESELF. ONE RACIAL GROUP FOR WHITE PEOPLE INTERNALIZED BOB. STILL OF SUPERIORITY ENTITLEMENT. OR EVEN WHOLLY NEGATIVE BELIEFS ABOUT PEOPLE OF COLOR IS IT TOO IS NO RACISM IS A RACIAL INEQUITY WITHIN INSTITUTIONS AND SYSTEMS OF POWER. SESSIONS PLACES OUT. EMPLOYMENT GOVERNMENT AGENCIES AND SOCIAL SERVICES IT CAN TAKE THE THEIR POLICIES AND PRACTICES DISCRIMINATORY TREATMENT IN EQUITABLE OPPORTUNITIES IN OUTCOME FOR EXAMPLE. IS AN EXAMPLE A STORM SYSTEM THAT CONCERT RATES IT CONCENTRATES PEOPLE COLOR IN THE MOST OVERCROWDED IT UNDER RESOURCES SCHOOLS WITH THE LEAST QUALIFIED TEACHERS COMPARE TO THE EDUCATIONAL WHY STUDENTS. IS AN EXAMPLE OF INSTITUTIONAL RACISM. EQUITY WE USED TO WORRY EQUITY ALL THE TIME WELL LIKE ALL OVER THE PLACE. ABOUT EQUITY VERSUS THE QUALITY BECAUSE I HEAR THIS ALL THE TIME GET EVERYBODY THE SAME THING SO LET ME GIVE YOU A DEFINITION OF WHAT THAT MEANS

EQUITY IN BOSS TRYING TO UNDERSTAND AND PEOPLE WHAT THEY NEED TO 4 LAURIE’S THIS AUDIT IS. RIGHT JUST TRY TO UNDERSTAND WHERE PEOPLE WHAT THEY NEED TO ENJOY A OR HEALTHY LIES EQUALITY IN CONCH CONTRAST AIMS TO ENSURE THAT EVERYONE GETS THE SAME THING. IN ORDER TO ENJOY IN ORDER TO ENJOY ON HEALTHY LIFE. LIKE IT WOULD CROWLEY AIMS TO PROMOTE FAIRNESS INGEST THIS IT CAN ONLY WORK IF EVERYONE STARTS FROM THE SAME PLACE IN NEED THE SAME THINGS AND WE ARE NOT STARTING FROM THE SAME PLACE INCLUSION INCLUSION IS THE ACT. OR STATE OF INCLUDING AND OR BEEN INCLUDED WITHIN A GROUP WAS STRUCTURED MORE THAN SIMPLY DIVERSITY IN NUMERICAL REPRESENTATION RIGHT AND SAY OH WE GOT DIVERSITY HERE WE HAVE LIKE 5 PEOPLE OF COLOR IN THIS BUSINESS TONIGHT BUT INCLUDES IN BOSS OUT AND TAKE AND EMPOWER PARTICIPATION IN A SENSE OF BELONGING THAT’S WHY AUSTIN WE UNITED STATES WE HAVE THIS ISSUE OF HIRING GROUPS OF PEOPLE BUT WE SUSTAIN THEM IN THOSE POSITIONS. INCLUSION SO SUGGESTS IS JESS IS THE CONCEPT OF FAIRNESS SOCIAL JUSTICE IS FAIRNESS IS IT MANIFESTS IN SOCIETY THAT INCLUDES FAIRNESS IN HEALTH CARE EMPLOYMENT HOUSING AND MORE DISCRIMINATION AND SOCIAL JUSTICE I’M NOT COMPATIBLE RESEARCH MY 2 SIDES OF THE SAME COURT CON RACIAL SCRIBES RACE-BASED ADVANTAGES FRESH TREATMENT BASED ON SKIN COLOR WHERE RACIAL OPPRESSION IS REFERRED TO RACE-BASED THIS ADVANCES DISCRIMINATION IT’S TAISHAN BASED EXPLOITATION BASS WAS IN COLOR IN THE SOCIAL HEALTH I’M NOT GOING TO BE ALL OF THAT BUT I WANT TO THIS PART OF THE SOCIAL THE TERM IN THE IT’S THE WORST OF YEAR RESOURCES THAT ENHANCE THE QUALITY OF LIFE COULD A SIGNIFICANT INFLUENCE ON POPULATION HEALTH OUTCOMES EXAMPLES OF THESE RESOURCES INCLUDE STAY IN AFFORDABLE HOUSING. ACCESS TO EDUCATION PUBLIC SAFETY. AVAILABILITY OF LOCAL EMERGENCY SERVICES AND THERE ARE ABOUT IN IN THAT ENVIRONMENT THAT IS FREE OF LIGHT. TOXIN IT’S A START US SHOULD BE DETERMINANT OF I KNOW MIGHT LIKE IN 3 SENT ME 3 MORE. THERE GO. WITH OKAY IN AN ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE SAW I JUST WANT TO SAY THIS OUT NOW BECAUSE I DO RECOGNIZE THAT. WE DID NOT GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR TESTIMONY AROUND ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE WE HAD A YOUNG ABOUT A GENTLEMAN BY THE NAME MISTER JAMES TRYST OR ON TO TESTIFY AROUND ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE AND WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE THROUGH THE LANDS A RACIAL EQUITY. RICHARD S THIS WHAT WAS FOR WHATEVER REASON THERE WAS SOME CONFUSION WITH HIS INFORMATION SO HE WAS NOT AVAILABLE BUT WE WAS ABLE TO CREATE OPPORTUNITY WITH A WORKING GROUP CAME TOGETHER TO HEAR FROM JAMES FOR MISTER TRIES. AND HE IS ALSO ONE HERE TO BE MADE AVAILABLE FOR ANY QUESTIONS THAT WE MAY HELP AROUND IN JUSTICE BUT THE PRINCIPLE OF IT JUST AT THE SERVICE PEOPLE BASED ON THEIR RACE OR ECONOMIC STATUS TO BE FORCED TO BEAR A DISPROPORTIONATE BURDEN OF ENVIRONMENTAL RISKS ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE DEAL WITH THE DISAPPEARS AND ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS AND THE BURDEN PEOPLE EXPERIENCE AT AT WORK WHERE THEY LEARNED PLAY WORSHIP AND SPEND THEIR LEISURE TIME IS SHORT ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE STRUGGLE TO AND MAINTAIN A CLEAN. AND HEALTHFUL IN IT HEALTH’S OWN ENVIRONMENT ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE WHO HAVE TRADITIONALLY WERE IN PLAY CLOSEST. TO THE STORE SAYS POLLUTION AND SO WITH THAT THOSE ARE SOME DEFINITION SURE THEY’RE PROBABLY MORE AND OTHER DEFINITIONS THAT WE HAVE QUESTIONS AROUND MAY NEED TO HEAR ABOUT

WELL WE THINK THOSE ARE THIS A REALLY GOOD FOR THE CONVERSATIONS THAT YOU HEAR OTHERS HERE HAVE REALLY AROUND RACIAL INEQUITY INEQUITIES AROUND RACE AND THE RACIAL DISPARITIES AND I’M HOPING THAT THERE WAS A STARTING POINT IS YOU BEGIN TO CONTINUE TO EDUCATE YOURSELF. WELL OTHER WORDS THAT YOU MAY HEAR THAT YOU TAKE TIME TO DIG DEEP. IF I KNOW WHAT ARE THEY TALKING ABOUT SO WITH THAT I’M GOING TO STOP THERE FOR ME AND I’M GOING TO THIS REPRESENTATIVE. RICHEST MEN >> AND YOU CAN SHARE ALL MORAN SO GETTING SORT OF THE MEAT OF THE REPORT ALRIGHT SECTION FOR LOOKING AT THE MINNESOTA PARADOX REALLY RELATES TO IDEALS THAT DOCTOR SAMUEL HAS DONE IN HIS WORK AT THE UNIVERSITY OF AND IT’S REALLY A REFLECTION OF THE FACT THAT MINNESOTA WHILE HAVING SOME OF THE BEST OUTCOMES AND MANY AREAS OF LIFE AND THE QUALITY OF LIFE THERE’S ALSO SORT OF TALE OF 2 STATES THAT WE ALSO HAVE SOME OF THE DISPARITY AS WELL WHEN IT COMES TO LOOKING ACROSS MANY OF OUR SYSTEM SO. NOT ONLY WITH TIME. OR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM BUT WITH AN EXECUTION. HOUSING CHILD WELFARE PUBLIC SAFETY AND AND SO ON AND SO ONE OF THINGS THAT WE REALLY TRIED ENSURE THAT THIS REPORT I WAS ABLE TO CAPTURE IS REALITY THAT THE DISPARITIES THAT WE SEE TODAY MANY ARE TIED TO VERY POLICY DECISIONS AND LEGISLATION THAT GOVERNMENT-SANCTIONED AND SO REALLY UNDERSTANDING SPECIFIC GOVERNMENT POLICIES HAVE SORT OF THEY SET UP. TRAJECTORY AS AND TALK ABOUT THE FACT THAT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT PEOPLE NOT ALL STARTING FROM THE PLACE WE HAVE TO REALLY UNDERSTAND THAT HISTORICAL LEGACY OF POLICY IS THAT WE’RE COLOR BLIND OR COLOR NEUTRAL THAT SPECIFICALLY WRITTEN IN WAYS BACK CREATED I’M AN EQUAL PLAYING FIELD AND BARRIERS FOR BLACK INDIGENOUS AND AND PEOPLE OF COLOR SO WITH AND CONTEXT OF THIS SECTION WE ALSO REITERATED FINDINGS OF THE COMMITTEE AND THOSE WERE FINDINGS THAT REALLY WORKS AT THE BASIS FOR HOUSE RESOLUTION. WHY I’M RECOGNIZING THAT RACISM IN FACT THE SUCCESS THAT IT IS HARMFUL AND THAT SYSTEMIC RACISM MUST BE ADDRESSED AND THAT WAS REALLY THE CRUX OF WHAT WE WERE UNDERTAKING WITH THIS HOUSE SELECT COMMITTEE ON RACIAL JUSTICE YOU CONTINUE STRONG HOSPITAL OR SO THEY’RE SO THEN JUST LOOKING THE RECENT CENSUS DATA IN TERMS RACE BREAKDOWN OF THE STATE AS YOU CAN SEE BLACK LATIN X OTHER COMMUNITIES OF COLOR MAKE UP ABOUT 20% OF WE WE KNOW THAT 2020 WHERE AND A NEW YEAR AND THAT THERE’S A NEW CENSUS DATA THAT IS GOING TO BE SOON BUT INFORMATION FROM COMMUNITY SURVEY DATA IS NOT THE MOST RECENT DATA THAT WE HAVE FROM 2019 SO THE ECONOMIC COST OF RACISM THAT IS SOMETHING THAT WE SPENT QUITE A BIT OF TIME ON DISCUSSING AND I THINK EVERYONE HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO LOOK AT THE REPORT FROM CITY AND YOU KNOW JUST AS REMINDER AND TERMS ABOUT THE WAY THAT REPORT WAS DRAFTED IT WAS LOOKING SPECIFICALLY AT DISCRIMINATION WITH BUT BLACK COMMUNITY AND I ESTIMATED THAT OVER THE LAST 20 YEARS THAT THERE WAS AN ESTIMATED 16 TRILLION DOLLARS THAT WAS LOST TO THE U.S. ECONOMY JUST ON THE BASIS OF DISCRIMINATION WITH BUT BLACK COMMUNITY SO IT WASN’T LOOKING BROADER ALONG; MEAN YOU BLACK INDIGENOUS LATIN NEXT PEOPLE OF COLOR ASIAN AMERICANS BUT JUST LOOKING WITH THAT NARROW SUBSET

AND IN TERMS OF THE IMPACT ON JOB CREATION THERE WAS AN ESTIMATED 6.1 MILLION JOBS THAT WERE NOT GENERATED OVER THE 20 YEARS AS A RESULT OF THAT AUGUST FROM A NATION AS COMMITTEE MEMBERS WHAT WE CALL THAT OUT DOCTOR HIM AND AND PROVIDED THE RESEARCH ON MINNESOTA SPECIFICALLY IN TERMS NOT ONLY MONEY LOST DID A BREAKDOWN IN TERMS OF LOOKING AT ABOUT 22 BILLION DOLLARS LOSS MINNESOTA BECAUSE OF THE WAGE DOLLARS LAST THEM A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITIES BECAUSE OF THE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY GAP AND THEN THE 24 BILLION DOLLAR LOSS THAT’S ESTIMATED AS A RESULT OF BARRIERS AND HOME OWNERSHIP AND HIGHER BURDENS AND SPENT A LITTLE BIT OF TIME TALKING ABOUT THE BARRIERS MINORITY OWNED BUSINESSES ARE FACING IN TERMS OF GETTING ACCESS TO CAPITAL AND THAT IS AN ESTIMATED 67 BILLION DOLLAR LOSS AND BUSINESS ROUGH REVENUE BECAUSE OF THE CAPITAL CAP FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN’T HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO MORE IN LOOKS AT DOCTOR WI PH AND HIS RESEARCH I HIGHLY ENCOURAGE ALL MEMBERS LOOK AT THE DATA BECAUSE HE HAS A BROKEN DOWN HOUSE DISTRICTS AS SO YOU CAN GO ONLINE AND LOOK AT YOUR SPECIFIC HOUSE TO START AND SEE WHERE THERE ARE POTENTIAL OPPORTUNITIES THAT WOULD MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN TERMS OF ADDRESSING. SYSTEMIC RACISM AND SO JUST THAT REAL UNDERSTANDING THAT OUR STATE AND OUR NATION WILL CONTINUE TO BE LESS PROSPEROUS AS LONG AS WE CONTINUE TO UPHOLD I SYSTEM THAT ARENA POINTED OUT SAPPING THE STRENGTH ALL ABOUT HUMAN RESOURCES. THOSE LOSSES ARE THINGS IMPACT ALL OF CROSS ACROSS THE STATE. SO THERE IS DEFINITELY AN ECONOMIC IMPERATIVE TO SYSTEMIC RACISM AS WELL MOVING LOOKING AT ABOUT GAP AND IF YOU COULD CONTINUE TO SCROLL UP. A LISTEN SO I’M LOOKING AT MEDIA NOT INFORMATION IS IS LESS STEADY HERE AND YOU CAN SEE THE STARK DIFFERENCE THE STATE OF MINNESOTA HAS THE SECOND INCOME INEQUALITY GAP BETWEEN BLACK AND WHITES IN THE UNITED STATES ONLY THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA HAS WORSENED SO WE’RE TALKING ABOUT THESE DEEP DISPARITIES THIS THIS IS WHY AN EYE EXAM PAUL AND YOU KNOW SORT OF GETTING TO THE WHY WE’LL TALK A LITTLE BIT MINNESOTA’S WAGE GAP WHICH THAT DATA IS THERE IN TERMS OF LOOKING AT THE AMOUNT EARNED ON THE DOLLAR AND THERE’S A THERE’S A WAGE GAP BETWEEN WHITE MINNESOTANS AND COMMUNITIES AS. AS WELL AND AS YOU CAN SEE WHAT BOUGHT FOR EVERY DOLLAR THAT WHITE MINNESOTANS EARN FOR INDIGENOUS POPULATIONS; THEY ARE ABOUT $0.68 ON THAT ON THAT DOLLAR WE THE COVID PANDEMIC HAS I THINK REALLY SHINED A LIGHT ON DISPARITIES THAT WE HAVE WITH AN OR OR STATE WITHIN OUR OUR AS WELL AND IT HAS REALLY SERVED TO ONLY FURTHER DISPARITIES SO PRIOR TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IN MINNESOTA WAS AT HISTORIC LOW; BUT EVEN WITH THAT HISTORIC LOW IT WAS STILL DOUBLE ABOUT RATE OF WHITE UNEMPLOYMENT AND SENSE THE COVID PANDEMIC I WHAT THAT DATA HAS REALLY SHOWN IS THAT ABOUT HALF OF BLACK MINNESOTANS HAVE LOST THEIR JOBS AND HAVE TO FILE FOR UNEMPLOYMENT SO ONE OUT OF BLACK MINNESOTANS COMPARED ONE AND FOR OUR MINNESOTANS AS WELL AND SO UNDERSTANDING THAT SOME OF THE NUANCES AROUND THE COVID PANDEMIC IN TERMS OUT WHO WERE AFFECTED; YOU KNOW THINKING THROUGH LIKE FRONTLINE WORKERS SOME INDUSTRIES THAT HAVE BEEN HIT VERY HARD LIKE HOSPITALITY INDUSTRIES; OR INDUSTRIES THAT HAVE HIGH BIPOC WORKERS THEN SO WE’RE CONTINUING TO SEE THAT OUT OF I D F N WITH THAT COLD HOUSING NOW I MEAN BECAUSE THERE TO SEE IF THERE’S ANY QUESTIONS WHAT HAS OR OR CO CHAIR MORAN; IF CARED YOU WANT TO

FINISH UP THE HOUSING DISPARITIES >> DON’T MISS THIS POLICY WE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR ANY MEMBERS OKAY WELL WE’LL MOVE FORWARD. IS SO HERE BEFORE US WE HAVE TO YOU KNOW SO ACCESS TO SAFE AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING IS WE ALL KNOW IS THE FOUNDATION OF A HEALTHY LIFE WHEN UNITED STATES AND IN MINNESOTA HOUSING HAS BEEN A FOUNDATION FOR RACISM DISCRIMINATION EXCLUSION THERE IS A HISTORICAL RECORD DISCRIMINATORY DISPLACEMENT IN MINNESOTA AND THE LEGACY THAT THOSE FORCED REMOVALS FAIL. EVEN IN THE PRESENT DAY TO FORCE REMOVE THE DAKOTA PEOPLE IN 1851 THE DESTRUCTION OF THE IMMIGRANTS COMMUNITY ON A RIVERSIDE FLATS IN THE 1960’S THE DISPLACEMENT OF UPPER MIDDLE CLASS MIDDLE CLASS AND WORKING CLASS BACK MINNESOTA’S IN COMMUNITY WITH THE CONSTRUCTION OF I 94. I JUST A FEW EXAMPLES DISCRIMINATORY PRACTICES THAT WAS SEAT AROUND HOUSING AT ONE POINT IN MINNESOTA HISTORY BACK RESIDENTS HIT HIGH HOMEOWNERSHIP RATES I WHEN WE LOOK TO RONDO COMMUNITY HERE IN SAINT PAUL YOU KNOW THEY WITH HIGH NUMBERS OF HOME OWNERSHIP IN WITH CONSTRUCTION OF FUN; I KNOW I KNOW I 94 COMING THROUGH IT JUST REALLY DISS MENTORING THE FOUNDATION OF THE BLACK COMMUNITY THE LOSS OF JOBS AND ALSO BUSINESSES THE LOSS OF HOME. ONLY SHIP. ALL HAPPENED WITHIN THE RONDO COMMUNITY UNFORTUNATELY THIS FACE GOVERNMENT SANCTIONS DISPLACES IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS IN COUNTERING WHAT REDLINING POLICIES IN THE HEAD TO CONTINUE TO DISCRIMINATORY POLICIES THAT LIMIT THEIR EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY THE STATE OF THE STATE HOUSING OF 2019 REPORTS DEMONSTRATE THAT THE FAILURE TO ADDRESS SIGNIFICANT INCREASE GAS BETWEEN HOUSING CALLS AND INCOME HAS BEEN CREATE A SEVERE AND DAMAGING IMPACT THAT DISPROPORTIONATELY IMPACT BLACK INDIGENOUS IN COMMUNITIES OF COLOR PEOPLE OF COLOR IN MINNESOTA IS YOU KNOW THIS STUFF; THE FIRST MINNESOTA WE HAVE ONE OF THE LARGEST RENTERS POPULATION IN A PERMIT WEST WITH OVER 611;000 RENTER HOUSEHOLD IN ADDITION; MINNESOTA CONSISTENTLY HAS ONE OF THE HIGHEST HOMEOWNER RACE IN THE COUNTRY. HAVE EVER FOR BY POP HIGH HOUSEHOLDS WHO ARE MOST LIKELY TO OWN HOMES THAN WHITE. HOUSEHOLDS Y 77% OF WHITE HOUSE HOMES HOUSEHOLDS OWN THEIR HOMES 57% OF ASIANS 46% OF NATIVE AMERICAN 45% OF LATEX IN JUST 24% OF BLACK HAWK HOUSEHOLD OWN THEIR OWN HOMES THEY GO TO DOWN A LITTLE BIT LISTEN SO WE KNOW THERE’S A HOME OWNERSHIP THERE’S A HOME OWNERSHIP GAP BUT THERE’S ALSO A COAST BURTON GAP IT’S COLE’S BERG IS WHEN THE SPEND MORE THAN 30% OF ITS INCOME ON HOUSING WITH HOUSING COSTS EXCEED 30% OF THE INCOME MONTH FAMILIES ARE LESS LIKELY TO HAVE SUFFICIENT RESOURCES TO PAY FOR BASIC THINGS LIKE WHO MEDICINE HEALTH CARE AND TRANSPORTATION AND WHAT WE ALSO SEEMS TO FIND UNDER THIS DATA THAT IS NOT THERE THAT WHEN THE HOUSE BURDEN BECOME SO EXTREME ALSO WHAT HAPPENS IS HOMELESSNESS NOT JUST OF INDIVIDUALS OR WHOLE FAMILIES HOME OWNERSHIP IS CRITICAL TO THE ACCUMULATION OF WEALTH AND IT IS A SIGNIFICANT FACTOR IN THE STARK DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE NET WORTH OF WHY FAMILIES AND BLACK FAMILIES UNITED STATES PEOPLE HAVE PRIMARILY BUILT THEIR WEALTH AND TRANSFERRED IT TO THEIR DESCENDANTS. THROUGH HOME OWNERSHIP ALL OF THAT WAS LOST MUCH OF THAT WAS LOST A LOT OF THAT WAS LOST WITHIN THE RONDO COMMUNITY. HOME WAS TAKEN FROM INDIVIDUALS MANY OBSTACLES; INCLUDING GOVERNMENT SANCTION POLICIES AND PROGRAMS HAS HINDERED THEIR ABILITY OF BLACK MINNESOTA’S TO BUY PROPERTY THE FEDERAL HOUSING ADMINISTRATION PLAYED A SIGNIFICANT ROLE IN THE 9 HOME OWNERSHIP TO BLACK MINNESOTA’S BY REFUSING TO ENSURE MORE GUST IN PREDOMINANTLY BLACK NEIGHBORHOODS IN A PRACTICE KNOWN AS REDLINING. REDLINING RIGHT A SYSTEM OF REDLINING BUILT BY DESIGN IS A CYCLE OF SEGREGATION THAT STICKER GEISHA HAS RESISTED FOR DECADES EVEN AFTER RED LINE WAS SUSPENDED

THE RESULT IS A SIGNIFICANT GAP BETWEEN WHITE AND BLACK HOMEOWNERSHIP TODAY LARGEST SINCE 1890 THE RACIAL HOUSING GAP IS A DRIVING FACTOR. IN RACIAL WEALTH. GAP IN ANOTHER CRITICAL DRIVING FACTOR IS THE FACT THE HOUSES IN PREDOMINANTLY BLACK NEIGHBORHOODS. THEY’VE BEEN GENERALLY OF PRAISE ALSO AT A LOWER VALUE DONE HOUSE IS LOCATED IN NEIGHBORHOODS DOWN MAJORITY WHITE EVEN WHEN COMPARING SIMILAR HOW STOCK I HAVE CONSISTENT PEER TO RIS TICKS IN AGES WERE FULL IT’S IN NUMBERS A BIT ROOM SANDRA THIS UNDERLINE THIS UNDERVALUING CONTINUES TO PERSIST OKAY; I CAN YOU TAKE THAT DOWN FOR A LISTEN. SOME OKAY RIGHT HERE THE IMPACT OF OVER 50 YEARS OF VARIOUS TO BLACK OWNED HOME OWNERSHIP. CONTINUES TO BE FELT TODAY THESE VARIOUS HAVE MET A DISPROPORTIONATE NUMBER OF BLACK FAMILIES IN MINNESOTA AND ACROSS THE NATION HAVE BEEN LEFT OUT OF THE HOME PRICE APPRECIATION THE MEDIUM AMOUNT OF HOUSING WELL FOR BLACK FAMILY HERE IN THE STATE OF MINNESOTA WAS A 124;000 WHY THE MEDIUM A MOUTHFUL WHY FAMILY WAS 200;000 THIS IS MEDIA THEY TAKES HOUSEHOLDS; A 158;000 OF THE HOUSEHOLD IS AT 240;000 OVERALL HOUSING EQUITY MAKE UP ABOUT 2 THIRDS OF ALL WEALTH. 4. THE TYPICAL HOME HOW SO THE TYPICAL MEDIUM HOUSEHOLD IN HIS SHORTS 4 MEDIUM FAMILY THE RACIAL WEALTH GAP IS PRIMARILY HOUSING WEALTH. YEAH IT HAS TAKEN DOWN SOME ALYSSA OH I’M SORRY GO UP A LITTLE BIT. RIGHT HERE SO POLICY DECISIONS HAVE PLAYED A CENTRAL ROLE IN CREATING AND MAINTAINING THE RACIAL WEALTH GAP RACE CONSCIOUS AND DISCRIMINATORY POLICIES CREATED THE FOUNDATION FOR THE RACIAL WEALTH GAP. AND THAT REALLY MEANS IT WILL BE DIFFICULT TO CLOSE THE GAP FAME MERELY A FOCUS POINT INDIVIDUAL CHOICES AND THE BEHAVIORS OF AFRICAN AMERICANS >> SO I BELIEVE I’M GOING TURN THIS OVER TO ROOF YEAH TALK LIKE PARODIES AND STATE COACH AND THAT REALLY QUICKLY AND ALL THE INFORMATION THAT WE ALL THIS FROM THE 2017 MINUTES TRYING TO SPARE THE STUDY. AND YOU KNOW ALL THAT. REQUIRE FOUND THAT ONLY 1.3 PROCUREMENT DOLLARS WENT TO MINORITY BUSINESSES AND SO THERE HUGE OPPORTUNITIES HERE IN TERMS OF THINKING THROUGH HOW THAT STATE OPERA CAN BE MORE EQUITABLE PROCESS WHICH WAS THAT THIS IS SOMETHING THAT ALSO IS CONTRIBUTING FACTOR TO ONLY TALK ABOUT A LOT BUT LEVEL PLAYING FIELD AND CALM WHICH TOPS A SPA A LESSON IF YOU COULD CONTINUE TO SCROLL DOWN WE SPENT A LITTLE BIT OF TIME THINKING THROUGH THE EXECUTION ARE AND LOOKING AT DISPARITIES IN TERMS HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION RATES NATIONALLY MINNESOTA OUTBREAKS; 50 S WHEN IT COMES RACIAL DISPARITIES AND HIGH SCHOOL GRABBED GRADUATION RATES AND SO I REALLY NOT USING THIS AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO HIGHLIGHT THE OPPORTUNITY GAP IF YOU CONTINUE SCROLL DOWN THERE IS ALSO A VERY SCHOOL DISCIPLINE DISPARITY GOT THAT WE ARE EXPERIENCING WITH THAT THE STATE AS WELL WE’VE BACK BUT I’M ALSO JUST UNDERSTANDING WHEN WE TALK ABOUT FOR EXAMPLE INDIGENOUS STUDENTS ARE 10 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO BE SUSPENDED IN THE STATE AND WHITE STUDENTS THAT PUTS ANOTHER SORT PERSPECTIVE ON THAT WHEN UNDERSTAND THAT INDIGENOUS STUDENTS ONLY MAKE UP 1.7% OF MINNESOTA STUDENT POPULATION; BUT THEY ARE YET 10 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO SUSPENDED OR EXPELLED WHEN COMPARED TO THEIR WAY HERE

BLACK STUDENTS ARE 8 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO SUSPENDED OR EXPELLED OUT THAT THEIR WAY HERE AND STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES ARE TWICE AS LIKELY AND WHEN YOU BEGAN TAKE A LOOK AT THIS WITH AN INTERSECTIONAL LANDS IN TERMS OF THINKING THROUGH THE EXPERIENCE BLACK AND STUDENTS WITHOUT DISABILITIES; THERE ARE ALSO SOME PRETTY STARK AS WELL AS IT RELATES PLACEMENT AND SPECIAL EDUCATION CLASSES SEE THAT BLACK STUDENTS ARE 6 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO BE PLACED IN SPECIAL EDUCATION. PROCESS INDIGENOUS STUDENTS ARE 4 TIMES MORE LIKELY AND WHEN IT COMES CONCERNS AROUND RESTRAINTS AND SECLUSION YS INDIGENOUS STUDENTS WHO MAKE UP ABOUT 3% OF THE SPECIAL EDUCATION POPULATION SIGNIFICANTLY OVERREPRESENTED IN THE RESTRAINT AND SECLUSION DATA AND BLACK CONSTITUTE 33% OF THE PHYSICAL RESTRAINTS WITH OUR SCHOOLS WHILE THEY ONLY REPRESENT 12% OF STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES GENERALLY WE SPENT A LITTLE BIT OF TIME ON HIGHLIGHTING ISSUES THAT HAVE BEEN RAISED IN TERMS OF THINKING THROUGH THE REPRESENTATION BLACK AND TEACHERS OF OF COLOR AS WELL WE KNOW OUR OUR STATE STRUGGLING TO HAVE A TEACHING WORKFORCE THAT IS OF POPULATION OF STUDENTS AND SPENT A LITTLE BIT OF TIME JUST TALKING ABOUT THE HISTORY THAT HAS CONTRIBUTED TO THE CHALLENGES THAT WE SEE TODAY IN TERMS OF BEING ABLE TO ATTRACT AND RETAIN TEACHERS SHADOW SIDE OF BROWN VERSUS BOARD OF EDUCATION RULING THAT PEOPLE MAY NOT NECESSARILY HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE OF IS AFTER BROWN VERSUS BOARD OF EDUCATION REQUIRED SCHOOLS TO DESEGREGATE THERE WERE OVER 38;000 BLACK TEACHERS WHO ARE PUSHED OUT OF THE CLASSROOM AS A RESULT OF OF THAT DECISION BLACK AND FARED EVEN WORSE 90% OF THEM LOST THEIR JOBS AND THE AFTERMATH OF BROWN VERSUS BOARD OF EDUCATION AND THAT THE DATA THAT WAS A MEAL AT THE TIME FROM THE NATIONAL EDUCATION ASSOCIATION SHOWED AT THAT TIME 85% OF BLACK TEACHERS HAVE ACHIEVED COLLEGE DEGREES. SO WE’RE TALKING ABOUT A HIGHLY EDUCATED WORKFORCE COMPARED WITH 75% OF WHITE TEACHERS BUT STILL WERE PUSHED OUT AND THAT PUSH OUT IS SOMETHING THAT HAS TO TO EVEN AND MORE RECENT TIMES AS WELL AND THE 80’S THERE WERE AN ADDITIONAL 21;000 OVER 21;000 BLACK TEACHERS OR BECAUSE OF NEW REQUIREMENTS TEACHING EDUCATION CERTIFICATION AND IMPACTS OF THAT PUSH OUT OR THINGS THAT WE CONTINUE ON TO SEE OUT TODAY AND I KNOW THAT READ RECENT NEWS STORY OUT TEACHER OF THE YEAR WHO LOST HER AS WELL AND SO THERE’S HISTORICAL LEGACY THAT WE CONTINUE TO DOWN INTO THE PRESIDENT ON DOWN TO THE PRESENT DAY LISTEN IF YOU COULD CONTINUE TO PLANS THIS INFORMATION IS BASICALLY LOOKING COLLEGE GRADUATION RATES AND SOME OF THE POST SECONDARY OUTCOME SEEKING CONTINUE AND THEN MOVING ON TO THE HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICE SITE AND EQUITIES DOCTOR RACHEL WAS AT OUR VERY FIRST HEARING AND TALKED QUITE A ABOUT THE MATERNAL CHILD OR DATA AND AGAIN ON WHAT WE’RE THINKING MARK END OF THE DAY TO WHAT THAT REALLY IS TALKING ABOUT ARE THE INDIVIDUALS WHO ALMOST DURING PREGNANCY THEY REFER TO THAT AS THE NEW SAYS YOU KNOW DOCTOR HARMAN TALK ABOUT THE FACT THAT BLACK WOMEN ARE 3 TO 4 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO DIE DURING CHILDBIRTH. OR SHORTLY THERE AFTER AND WHEN YOU ARE LOOKING AT ALL OF THE VARIOUS BACKGROUNDS OUT OF BLACK WOMEN WHO DIED ON DURING PREGNANCY OR SHORTLY AFTER CHILDBIRTH EVEN WHEN YOU’RE CONTROLLING FOR INCOME EDUCATION; GENERAL OVERALL AND AND WELL BEING INSURANCE STATUS HOUSING STATUS MERRICK STATUS. BY ONE MAN ARE STILL 3 TO 4 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO DIE DURING PREGNANCY

AND CHILDBIRTH AND WHAT IS REALLY CONCERNING OUT THOSE NUMBERS NOT JUST BECAUSE THEY’RE START BUT THE REALITY THE VAST MAJORITY OF THESE DEATHS ARE IN CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL TALKS ABOUT APPROXIMATELY 60% OF DOUBTS ARE AND IT REAL QUESTIONS AROUND IF THESE ARE TASKS THAT CAN BE PREVENTED WHY ARE WHY ARE THEY PREVENT HEAD. THERE HAS BEEN A LOT MORE NOTORIETY AROUND THESE ISSUES AS WE HAVE INDIVIDUALS OF HIGHER STATUS ALMOST DIED DURING DURING CHILDBIRTH SERENA BEYONCE 2 WOMEN WHO ALMOST DIED AFTER CHILD BIRTH AND I WITH SERENA WILLIAMS SHE SHARED HER PERSONAL STORY ABOUT HOW WHEN SHE COMPLAINED HAVING TROUBLE BREATHING. SHE WAS IGNORED BY HER DOCTORS. AND SO SHE ACTUALLY HAD TO GET OUT OF HER BED AFTER GIVING BIRTH AND WALK DOWN THE HALLWAY. AND TO HOW HER AND EVEN UPON BAGGING PEOPLE WERE DISREGARDING WHAT SHE HAD SAID AND AS A RESULT OF A SHE WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO FINALLY HAVE SOMEONE LISTEN TO HER AND THEY FOUND THAT SHE HAD MULTIPLE BLOOD WITH AND HER AND SHE CLOSE TO LOSING HER LIFE BUT FOR THE FACT THAT SHE WAS SERENA WILLIAMS; I’M BEGGING FOR ALL HER LIFE THAT COULD HAVE EASILY A LIFE LOST AND THIS IS ISSUE THAT IS VERY PERSONAL TO ME AS WELL HAVING HAVE A COUSIN WHO DIED SHORTLY AFTER GIVING BIRTH SHE BEGGED FOR HELP TO HER PROVIDERS HER HUSBAND BEGGED FOR HELP TO HER PROVIDERS SHE WAS NOT HEARD AND SHE SHE SHE LOST HER LIFE AND SO UNDERSTANDING THAT THERE IS A CONCERNING PATTERN THAT IS OCCURRING WHERE BLACK WOMEN ARE NOT BEING HEARD WHEN THEY’RE COMPETING OF A SYMPTOM SHORTLY AFTER GIVING BIRTH KNOWING THAT SAYS 60% OF THESE ARE PREVENTABLE TELLS US THERE THERE’S MORE THAT WE NEED TO DO. WE SPENT A LITTLE BIT OF TIME LOOKING AT SOME OF THE HISTORY OF BLACK WOMEN HAVE BEEN TREATED AND THINKING OBT Y M LOOKING AT A LEGACY DOCTOR J MARY AND SAMS WHO IS KNOWN AS THE E GODFATHER OF OBSTETRICS AND THE MEDICAL ADVANCES THAT ADVANCE CREATED THROUGH PRETTY HORRIFIC EXPERIMENTS THAT WORD ON ON ENSLAVED BLACK WOMEN WITHOUT THE USE OF ANESTHESIA ONE WOMEN THAT HE OPERATED ON AND YOUR ID AT LEAST SURGERIES ANY AMNESTY SHOT AND AFTER SURGERIES WERE AFFECTED ON THESE ENSLAVED WOMEN HE THEN MOVED TO NEW YORK AND STARTED TREATING WHITE WOMEN WITH THE AXING PROCEDURES BUT THIS TIME I’VE USED HOT AMNESTY SHOT WEST SOME ABOUT WORK DOCTOR HAS WHAT THIS HISTORICAL RECORD THERE WAS A VERY REAL MISGUIDED BELIEF THAT BLACK PEOPLE DIDN’T EXPERIENCED AND THE SAME WAY THAT EXPERIENCE PAIN AND FAST FORWARD TO TODAY; WE SEE FUTURE AND CURRENT PROVIDERS CONTINUE TO HOLD BACK METH BLACK INDIVIDUALS DON’T EXPERIENCE PAIN BUT THEN THE SAME WAY THERE STUDIED ON AS RECENTLY AS 2016 AND LOOKING HALF OF MEDICAL TRAINEES WITH THOSE ARE FIRST AND SECOND YEAR MEDICAL STUDENTS THEY BELIEVED METH SUCH BLACK PEOPLE HAVE TO CURSE CAN OR LESS SENSITIVE ON NERVE ENDINGS AND SO WHEN YOU’RE LOOKING AT THAT DISTRIBUTION OF PAIN MEDICATION WITH THAT CHILDHOOD ALL THE WAY UP TO BLACK PATIENTS ARE LESS LIKELY TO AS PAIN AS AS

WAIT AT THE VIGIL WHETHER IT BE FOR CANCER BROKEN EVEN LOOKING BLACK WHO HAVE APPENDICITIS THEY HEAT MEDICATION AND SO UNDERSTANDING THE CHALLENGES HAVE BEEN I LIKE WOMEN FROM AN OLD BEATTY WHY PIECE THERE’S A HISTORICAL LEGACY THAT CONTINUES DOWN TO THE STATE THAT IS CONTINUING TO CONTRIBUTE BUT THE LACK OF PREVENTION OF DEATHS THAT ARE ALL PREVENTABLE AND THERE ARE DEFINITELY MORE EXAMPLES OF OF SANCTIONS EXPERIMENTS THINGS LIKE THAT EXPERIMENT AND I CAN IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD THE NAME OF HENRIETTA LACKS HIGHLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO LEARN MORE ABOUT HER STORY AS WELL BECAUSE EXPERIMENTS THAT WERE USED UP ON HER TO COLLECT HER SPOUSE ARE THINGS THAT CONTINUE TO HAVE AN IMPACT DOWN EVEN THE PRESENT DAY CONTINUE TO CHAIRMAN TOBACCO DISPARITIES. YOU ARE ON YOU >> THANK YOU REPRESENTIVE RUDD TO SEND UP BEFORE I MOVE ON TO TOBACCO DISPARITIES I JUST WANT TO KIND OF LIKE HIGHLIGHT REALLY QUICKLY THE THE STATEMENTS THAT REPRESENT OF RICHES AND WAS TALKING THE NUMBER OF KIDS WERE BEEN SUSPENDED EXPELLED FROM SCHOOL THAT THERE HAS BEEN RESEARCH THAT HAS DEMONSTRATED THAT RACISM AND IS THIS BIAS BEGAN BEFORE SURETY INTER PRESCHOOL THE FINDINGS WAS THAT TEACHER MORE CLOSELY. BLACK STUDENTS FOR BAD BEHAVIOR AND YOU IN MY PERSONAL TESTIMONY TO THAT IS THAT YOU KNOW YOU KNOW; I’M A MOTHER 7 BUT THERE’S ALSO YOU KNOW MY WHO WERE COME HOME AND SAY YOU KNOW YOU KNOW SO YOU KNOW SOMEONE IN THE CLASSROOM WAS ACTING NOW IT WAS A BLACK STUDENT IN WHY STUDIO SAID THE SAME THING. BUT THAT BLACK STUDENT WAS SENT TO THE PRINCIPAL’S OFFICE YOU KNOW; SO SAME TYPE BEHAVIOR BUT WE HAVE FOUND THAT. THOSE BIASES I ACTUALLY WENT UP AND THEY CONTINUE TO SHOW UP EVEN IN 20 21; IN 2020 SO I WANT TO THERE FOR A MOMENT JUST AS IF ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ON WANT TO MAKE A STATEMENT AT THIS TIME BEFORE MOVE ON SO LOOKING AT TOBACCO DISPARITIES AND REALLY RAISE THIS UP BECAUSE YOU WE KNOW THAT THE IMPACT THAT TOBACCO HAVE ON OUR WELL-BEING. AND I’M HEALTH OUTCOMES. YOU KNOW AND SO DESPITE ALL THE WORK TO REDUCE SMOKING RATES IN MINNESOTA; IT IS A BIG IF SMOKING REMAINS THE LEADING CAUSE OF FOR DEAF AND DISEASE IN THE STATE AND WE KNOW THAT RIGHT SMOKING KILLS OVER 6;000 MINNESOTANS ANNUALLY AND THE SOCIAL CALLS ARE ESTIMATED TO EXCEED 7 BILLION DOLLARS THE BURDEN OF SOCIAL COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH SMOKING I DISPROPORTIONATELY IMPACTED BLACK MINNESOTA DANCE OF COURSE AND THE FEDERAL DRUG ADMINISTRATION REFUSAL TO BAN MENTHOL AS A RESULT IN ADVERSE IMPACT. YOU KNOW TOBACCO. IS A HUGE INDUSTRY WHICH IS A 50 YEAR HISTORY OF TARGETING MARKETING OF THE MENTHOL CIGARETTES AND PRODUCTS IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY THIS TIME HE HAS TAKEN THE FORM OF DIRECT ADVERTISING IN BACK PUBLICATIONS IN OUR NEIGHBORHOODS. SO INTO TAME IN ADVANCE AND EVEN ENGAGE AND DISABUSE IN CAMPAIGNS BY DRIVING AND PREDOMINANTLY BLACK NEIGHBORHOODS IN HANDING OUT FREE SAMPLES OF MENTHOL CIGARETTES COMMUNITY WHEN I WAS RAISED AND ON THE SOUTH SIDE CHICAGO; WHICH WAS A PREDOMINANTLY BLACK COMMUNITY. WE WERE INUNDATED WITH SIGNAGE. OR TOBACCO THOSE FREE CIGARETTES OR DISCOUNTS WAS A PART OF INTENTIONAL TARGETING THAT CAME FROM THE TOBACCO INDUSTRY DEBT IMPACT OF THAT TARGET IN A MARKING OUR FEEL IN THE PRESENT DAY TODAY

88% OF BLACK MINNESOTA ADULTS WHO SMOKE YOUTH MEANT DOLL COMPARED TO 22% OF WHITE SMOKE. I STATES COLLUSION OF MENTHOL TOBACCO IN THE FEDERAL 2009 BAN ON FLAVORED CIGARETTES HIS INSTITUTIONALIZE THE DISPARITY AND HIS CALLS PRESSURES LIES ONE RESEARCH STUDY FOUND THAT IF MENTAL HAVE BEEN BANNED WITH ALL OF CIGARETTE FLAVORS WERE DISALLOW BY 2050 THERE WE’VE BEEN ESTIMATED 10% REDUCTION OVERALL SMOKING PREVALENCE IN UP TO 633;000 CLASS LIVES WOULD HAVE BEEN SAVED INCLUDING MORE THAN 200;000 LIVES WE HAVE STRUGGLED WITH THIS CONCEPT RIGHT HERE IN THE STATE OF MINNESOTA WE HAVE WORKED ON BANNING E-CIGARETTE AS WHEN YOU KNOW LIFTING THE CALL SO WHAT IT CALLS TO 4 PACK OF CIGARETTES WITH DONE MANY WE ALL RIGHT AND YOU KNOW IS A BIG FOCUS ON FLAVOR OF MANY FLAVORED CIGARETTES BUT WE HAVE YET TO COME TO A CONSENSUS ABOUT THE NEED TO MENTHOL CIGARETTES AND EVEN SAY THAT IS BECAUSE WE KNOW WHO THE TARGET POPULATION IS WHEN IT COMES TO MENTHOL CIGARETTES. WE CAN DO BETTER SPIRIT EASE SO ENVIRONMENT; THE SPIRIT IS KIND OF LIKE EQUAL TO ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE FIGHT WHICH IS WHAT WE WANT TO KEEP AND MAINTAIN A CLEAN AND. HOW FRO ENVIRONMENT BIPOC MINNESOTA’S US PEERS HIGHER COUNCIL AND AS RAISING THEIR WHITE PEERS BLACK AND INDIGENOUS MORE OUT MOST LIKELY TO BE DIAGNOSED WITH ASTHMA MINNESOTA BY HAVE ONE OF THE HIGHEST RATE OF ASTHMA I REMEMBER MY NIECE LIVED IN MINNEAPOLIS THIS IS LIKE MADE OVER 20 PLUS YEARS AGO GAVE BIRTH TO LITTLE GIRL HER BABY; YOU KNOW. HE HAD ASKED IN THE FIRST 3 YEARS OF HER LIFE SHE WAS IN AND OUT OF THE HOSPITAL TOO HER MOTHER MY SISTER FAMILY SAID TO HER YOU NEED TO COME ON CASSINI YOUR FAMILY NEEDS SOME HELP NEEDED TO A FAMILY THEY LEFT MINNESOTA. IN A PROMISE YOU ALSO WITH WHAT WHAT HAPPENED MY MOVING. THAT AS DIDN’T SHE DIDN’T FEEL THE IMPACT OF THE ASKED ME ANYMORE SEES UH HELP THE YUAN. WOMAN. HERSELF NOW WHO. NEVER AND I MEAN NEVER HIT ONE AS MY TECH WHEN SHE RETURNED HOME IT WILL STAND BY ME IN MINNEAPOLIS SOME WOULD SAY SO THEY’RE ALSO DISAPPEARED IN THE DEATH RATE DUE TO ASK IS BACK MINNESOTA DEFREEZE OR 4 TIMES HIGHER ALTHOUGH PEERS AND INDIGENOUS MINNESOTANS HAVE THE HIGHEST RATE OF COUNCIL DIAGNOSIS IMMORTALITY IN THE STATE THESE HEALTH DISPARITIES HAVE LED TO HIGHER CONCENTRATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION IN THE IN THESE COMMUNITIES EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE OF ENVIRONMENTAL INJUSTICE ALONG RACIAL ECONOMIC LINES HAVE BEEN PRODUCED TIME. IN AGAIN VIABLE POPULATIONS CONTINUE TO BEAR A DISPROPORTIONATE BURDEN OF SOCIETIES. ENVIRONMENTAL HARMS IT’S IN STRAIGHT IN THE RECENT WATER CRISIS LIKE IN FLINT MICHIGAN AND IN SAINT JOSEPH IN LOUISIANA. WE ALSO WAS ABLE TO SEE THIS TYPE OF BEHAVIOR IN MINNESOTA FOR EXAMPLE IN NORTH MINNEAPOLIS WHEN OF MEADOW SHARE NORTH MEDALS BALLET TO POLLUTION STANDARDS A HIGH DEGREE POISONED ASKED WHAT WAS TO TAKE THE IN NEIGHBORHOODS AND HOMES SO ACCORDING TO AIR POLLUTION MODEL PROVIDED BY THE MINNESOTA POLLUTION CONTROL AGENCY THERE ARE STARK IN SIGNIFICANT ENVIRONMENTAL RACIAL DISPARITIES WE RELATED TO AIR QUALITY 32% OF ALL COMMUNITIES HAVE AIR POLLUTION RELATED RISKS ABOVE HEALTH GUIDELINES HAVE EVER THIS OF BIPOC MINNESOTA’S THAT EXPERIENCE AIR POLLUTION RELATED RISKS. ABOVE HEALTH GUIDELINES OUR FOR OUR FAR HIGHER. AT 91% THAT IS WHAT WE ARE THEN 2 DISPARITIES IN MINNESOTA DENTRO DISEASE IS THE MOST COMMON CHRONIC CHILDHOOD ILLNESS IN MINNESOTA; EXCEEDING THE CASES OF ASTHMA. DIABETES OBESITY AND LEADING UP TO 1000 OF HOURS OF MISS SCHOOL. AND WORK LOW INCOME AND FAMILIES IN BIPOC MINNESOTA HAS A MORE SEVERELY AFFECTED BUY POT; GEORGIA AND MINNESOTA ARE LESS LIKELY TO RECEIVE DENTAL SEALANTS TO PREVENT CAVITIES IN MORE LIKELY TO HAVE UNTREATED CAVITIES IN THEIR WHITE PEERS

AMONG ADULTS BLACK AND INDIGENOUS MEN HAVE THE HIGHEST RATES OF OR CAVITIES. AND IN. COUNCIL THE PROBLEM IS IF THAT WERE COUNCIL POOR OR HEALTH AND INDICATORS FOR MORE CHRONIC HEALTH CONDITIONS SUCH AS HEART DISEASE. I’LL TRY STROKE. MANY OF US WONDER THAT DENTAL CARE SHOULD BE AND MUST BE. HEALTH CARE I THINK OF THE REPRESENTATIVE INTERVIEW DO LOOK OVER HOSPITALIZATION WITH TELE RATE WE SHOULD I CONTINUE ON WITH SURE I CAN DO WHILE SO I THINK WE’VE ALL HAD A NUMBER OF CONVERSATIONS AROUND >> A DISPROPORTIONATE IMPACT THAT COVID HAS BEEN BIPOC COMMUNITIES AS WELL WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE AGE OF JUST RACE FOR HOSPITALIZATION UP COLD THEN >> INDIVIDUALS ARE FACING SOME OF THE HIGHEST RATES WITHIN OUR STATES IN TERMS OF HOSPITALIZATION AND THEN YOU CAN CONTINUE JUST FALL DOWN ALSO THERE ARE CLEAR ON DISPARITIES ALSO WITH AMERICANS WHO ARE DIAGNOSED WITH AS WELL THERE ARE DISPARITIES LOOKING AT THE ICU WHAT OF THE GENERAL VERSE COMMUNITIES AND EVEN WITH GROUPS IT’S IMPORTANT TO NOTE HAS BROUGHT OUT IN THE 2019 ELIMINATING HEALTH DISPARITIES AND SHOULD WE OR THAT WHEN DATA FURTHER DISAGGREGATED YOU HAD BEGUN TO SEE EVEN GREATER DISPARITIES WHAT OUT SOME GROUPS LOOKING SPECIFIC IT CAMBODIAN AND LAOTIAN ELECTIONS WELL AND SO I’LL TURN IT OVER TO YOU FOR FAMILY SEPARATION >> YES; AND SO WHAT TRANSPARENCY PURPOSES; YES; WE DID NOT WITHIN COMMITTEE MIGHT SURROUND FAMILY SEPARATION WHICH FOOD SYSTEM OUT TREY SMITH; BUT THIS IS SOMETHING THAT I WAS ADAMANT THAT WE CAN NOT GO OR IT WAS OUT. BRINGING IN THIS PIECE INTO THE REPORT >> IT IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE FOR BLACK INDIGENOUS AND FOR PEOPLE OF COLOR FAMILY IS IMPORTANT. IS IMPORTANT FAMILIES IS IN CRITICAL BUT WE HAVE A HISTORY HERE AROUND FAMILY SEPARATION SEPARATION OF BY ABOUT FROM THEIR FAMILY HAS A LONG HISTORY IN AMERICA MINNESOTA POLICIES HE HAS BEEN USED AS WEAPONS TO FALL STIR EXCLUSION A SEPARATION HAS IMPACTED BLACK FAMILIES DO IN SO DOING SLAVERY INDIGENOUS FAMILIES DOING TO BOARDING SCHOOL ERA AND THE JAPANESE AMERICAN DOING THE INTER THEIR INTERNMENT JUST TO NAME A FEW IN MINNESOTA; THE DAKOTA AND A WAY HAVE BEEN FORCIBLY SEPARATED BY THEIR FAMILIES FOR CENTURIES INCLUDING IN 1862 AND A COLD ELDERS; WOMEN AND CHILDREN WERE FORCIBLY REMOVED FROM CONCENTRATION CAMPS. AT FORT SNELLING WHY THE CO TO ME AND WERE MOVED TO A MILITARY INSTALLATION IN DAVENPORT; IOWA. NOT ALL FAMILIES WERE ABLE TO UNIFY FOLLOWING THAT FOR SEPARATION HE’S DOWN AND LISTEN SO THIS WAS SEPARATION OF SEWER THE FROM THE FAMILIES CONTINUE THROUGHOUT THE BOARDING SCHOOL ERA MANY INDIGENOUS FAMILY EXPERIENCE SHOULD HAVE BEEN RIPPED AWAY FROM THEIR PARENTS AND SENT TO MILITARY STAFF INSTITUTION. DESIGNED TO PROMOTE THE CULTURAL GENOCIDE BASED ON THE KILL THE SAVE THE MAN MINNESOTA HAS 16 BOARDING SCHOOLS THAT BUSINESS. DREW CHILDREN FROM 11 FROM ALL 11 TRIBES; SURE THEY WERE FORCED TO RENOUNCE THEIR RELIGION BELIEFS. COOK DAY HERE. ABANDONED THE IDENTITY IT WAS FORBIDDEN FROM SPEAKING AND SISTER ELAINE WEIGHT SOME CHILDREN WERE LEASED OUT TO WHY FAMILIES AS INDENTURED SERVANTS MANY PARENTS WHO RESISTED WERE ARRESTED. OR PUNISHED IN THE 2 OF THEM WERE FORCIBLY TAKEN THE CHILDREN WORKING DOWN TO SCHOOLS WEALTH INSUFFICIENT RULES OVERCROWDED DON’T DORMS SUBSTANTIAL MEDICAL CARE

AND EXPLORE AND EXPOSE CHILD LABOR PRACTICES THIS FORCE FAMILIES. LEFT DEEP SCARS IN THE LEGACY OF INTERGENERATIONAL TRAUMA ON RESOLVE GRIEF. AND PAIN THAT CONTINUES IN I STAY IN THE 9 NATIONS. TODAY THIS PRACTICE; WHAT OR INTO THE PASSING OF THE INDIAN CHILD WELFARE ACT 1978 WHEN NATIVE AMERICAN PARENTS WERE GIVEN THE LEGAL RIGHT TO REFUSE BOARDING SCHOOL EDUCATION THIS HARMFUL LEGACY OF FAMILY SEPARATION AND INTERGENERATIONAL TRAUMA ALSO EXISTS FOR DESCENDANTS OF ENSLAVED BLACK PEOPLE. DURING ASCENT HAIL SLAVERY. THEY WERE ALL THERE WAS DAILY BY IS SELLING TO CHILDREN NO LEGAL RESTRAINTS EXISTED WAS SLAVE OWNERS WE CHOSE TO DISPOSE OF THEIR PROPERTY. THEIR PROPERTY. AS THEY SAW FIT THE INTERNMENT OF PEOPLE OF JAPANESE DESCENT WAS ALSO A TIME OF THE NECK OF US LOSING MARY POLICIES BY THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT IT WAS PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT ORDERED THAT JAPANESE MANY OF THEM UNITED STATES CITIZEN HE FORCEFULLY REMOVED IN HILL IN CAMPS EVEN INFANTS WERE PLACE IN THESE CAMPS WITH THEIR PARENTS. AND SOMETIMES WITHOUT THEIR PARENTS SO IS IS BEEN DONE TODAY WE’VE DOCUMENTED CHILDREN UNDOCUMENTED CHILDREN AND BIPOC CHILDREN THE SEPARATION WERE DEFEND IT DEFENDED IN RUSSIAN ALLIES WITHOUT MUCH CONSIDERATION. OF THE NEGATIVE AND LONG LASTING TRAUMA SO ACCORDING TO SCHOLARS THIS IS ABOUT TODAY; ACCORDING TO SCHOLARS WHO HAS SPENT MANY YEARS RESEARCHING THE MUCH GENERATIONAL TRAUMA MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WHO ENDORSE SLAVERY. CONTINUE TO PASS ON BEHAVIOR. SUCH AS ANGER DALLAS AND SHANE DOWN TO CONTEMPORARY GENERATIONS STAR HAVE ALSO RESEARCHED THE IMPACT OF AMERICA BOARDING SCHOOLS THEIR FINDINGS INCLUDE REPORTS OF ABUSE IN BOARDING SCHOOLS AND HOW THAT MANIFESTED IN THEIR LATER YEARS. HIS THEY WERE FOUND TO HAVE HIGH LEVELS OF DEPRESSION RESEARCH HAS ALSO LINKED TO EVERY SELLER EXPERIENCES ACES A BOARDING SCHOOLS LIST DIFFICULTY TO MANAGING STRESS AS ADULTS. THE RESEARCH IS CLEAR AND IT DEMONSTRATES THAT MULTIPLE OUT OF HOME PLACEMENT IS HARMFUL FOR AND FAMILIES THAT INABILITY CAN LEAD TO PROFOUND DISTRESS ENSURE CAN ALSO EXPERIENCE A LOSS OF BELONGING FAMILY SEPARATION IS A CHILD MATIC EXPERIENCE AND THE DEEP BOTH A PHYSICAL AND A PSYCHOLOGICAL IMPACT ON CHILDREN AND CAN BE DISRUPTIVE TO THEIR ENVIRONMENT SEPARATION CAN IMPACT. IT HAS MEANT AN EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT UNRESOLVED THESE CHALLENGES CAN FOR ISIS AND CALLS ISSUES THAT CONTINUES INTO ADULTHOOD. WE ARE ALL A REFLECTION. CHILDHOOD ALL OF US WHAT IS POSSIBLE TO SEE MEANING CONSEQUENCES OF EVERY CELL OF EXPERIENCES WITH THEIR PROBE IS SUPPORT. IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT THERE ARE LASTING INTERGENERATIONAL IMPACTS RELATED TO FAMILY SEPARATIONS SO WHAT’S A NIGHT OUT WHERE FREE SYSTEM AND SO TODAY WITH BEEN REMOVED FROM HOMES. FROM THEIR HOMES. FROM THE FAMILY FROM THE COMMUNITY AND SOME TIME FROM THE SCHOOL. TO I’VE BEEN TRAUMATIZED AND THAT TRAUMA THEY SHUN HIS LIFELONG CAN HAVE LIFELONG EXPERIENCES IT WAS REPEATED FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION. TO GENERATION CAN STROLL A LISTEN. AND LET’S START WITH THE FOR SEPARATION OF CHILDREN FROM THEIR FAMILIES CONTINUE THROUGHOUT THE BOARDING SCHOOL ERA SO THE HARMFUL LEGACY OF FAMILY SEPARATION THE HARMFUL LEGACY OF FAMILY SEPARATION IN THE INTERGENERATIONAL TRAUMA ALSO RAISES FOR DESCENDANTS OF ENSLAVED PEOPLE CAN TELL YOU GUYS HIGH HERE SO DOWN MINNESOTA HAS SIGNIFICANT RACIAL DISPARITIES IN OUT OF HOME CARE

BLACK IN AMERICA INTO DISPROPORTIONATELY LIKELY TO EXPERIENCE OUT OF HOME CARE COMPARED TO WHITE AND BLACK CHURCH IN MINNESOTA A 2.3 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO BE INVOLVED IN OUT TREATMENT TREATMENT AND 2.9 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO EXPERIENCE OF HOME PLACEMENTS MANY ELEMENTS OF THE CHAO WHERE FREE SYSTEM SUCH WORKERS BIASED CULTURAL MISUNDERSTANDING DISTRUST BETWEEN STAFF AND FAMILIES COMMUNITIES ARE NEIGHBORHOOD RISK IN OTHER PERRIN FAMILY FACTORS CONTRIBUTE TO RACIAL DISPROPORTIONALITY IN THE CHOW WHERE FAY SYSTEM AND I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT POVERTY HOBBY IS NOT A BASIC FOR BRINGING IN SECURITY INTO FOSTER CARE AND FAMILIES HAVE A RIGHT TO RAISE SITUATION REGARDLESS OF HOW MUCH MONEY THEY OR HOW MUCH FOOD IS IN THE REFRIGERATOR AND UNITED STATES A COUNTRY WITH A LOT OF RESOURCES. IT IS CRIMINAL TO TAKE YOUR AWAY FROM THE FAMILIES BECAUSE THEY DO NOT TO IN THE HOME THE SOLUTION IS TO HELP THE FAMILY GET. FOOD AND WE NEED TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET FAMILIES THE RESOURCES. THEY NEED THE STATE SPENDS MORE MONEY TO HAVE A CHILD IN FOSTER CARE THEY’RE WHAT IT CALLS TO SUPPORT THE FAMILY BASIC NEEDS. WE MUST LOOK TO SCRAP IF WE BELIEVE IN FAMILIES IF WE THINK FAMILIES ARE IMPORTANT THERE WE NEED TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET RESOURCES TO FAMILY. REZA DIN SOMEONE ELSE WHEN WE SPEND MONEY ON THE FRONT AND THE OUTCOMES ARE BETTER WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE NOT DOING AT SOME IT’S A MISS HINTE IT NICK LET’S IN ABUSE WHICH OFTEN IN THE PAST HOW MOST KIDS WERE REMOVED TO THEIR REMOVED FROM THEIR HOMES NOW THERE’S A BIGGER CASE OF 2 OF THEM THEY REMOVED FROM THE HOME BECAUSE OF SUBSTANCE ABUSE BUT WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE NOT DOING AS SOME OF HIS ANTICS AROUND AND THEN NEGLECT AND ABUSE. JESS THAT NICE IN MORE ACCEPTABLE TERMS. FOR POVERTY SUBSTANCE ABUSE IS ALSO GOING ONE. HOUSE HOPES. BUT OFTEN SO SHE REMOVED FROM THEIR HOMES SO THEY ARE CURRENTLY 25 STATES AND THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA AND WHEN DISMISSED RIGHT THERE ARE PARTICIPATING IN THE FEDERAL CHILD WHERE FOR A DEMONSTRATION PROJECT THIS DEMONSTRATION PROJECTS GUEST; A SON TRIES TO ABILITY TO APPLY FOR WAIVERS SO THAT THEY MAY BETTER TARGET IT ADVOCATES ALLOCATE THEIR RESPECTIVE SHARES OF THE TIDE OF 4. THE FAA SECURE DOLLARS MINNESOTA IS NOT CURRENTLY PARTICIPATING THIS DEMONSTRATION WAIVER AND SO WE’RE GOING TO MOVE ON INTO PUBLIC SAFETY PUBLIC SAFETY I HAD TO SHARE WITH YOU GUYS WAS ONE OF INSTITUTIONS. OR AREAS THAT IS EXPENSIVE AND IS SO THAT COULD BE DONE SHOULD BE DONE NEED TO BE TALKED ABOUT BUT REPRESENTATIVE IN MYSELF WE WANTED TO REALLY FOCUS ON THE MOMENT THAT WE ARE IN RIGHT NOW. IN 2020 IN A LOT OF THIS THAT WE’RE IN REALLY IS. THERE IS AROUND POLICING YOU KNOW I I’VE BEEN ABLE TO HEAD TO HONOR POLICE TO BE A PART OF NEGOTIATE DIDN’T DO THAT NEGOTIATION. THEY TOOK IN THE POLICE ACCOUNTABILITY LEGISLATION THAT WE MOVED IN THE BODY YOU KNOW I’VE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO LISTEN TO MY YOU KNOW MY WHITE COLLEAGUES AND MY RULE COLLEAGUES THE TALK ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP THAT THEY OF POLICE OFFICERS WHICH IS DIFFERENT FROM THE RELATIONSHIP THAT WE HAVE IN OUR COMMUNITY AND SO I THOUGHT WE THOUGHT IT WAS IMPORTANT THAT WE GIVE SOME HISTORY ON WHY THAT DISTRUST IS WHERE IT IS TODAY SO IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND THE CURRENT RACIAL DISPARITIES IN PUBLIC SAFETY IS A POINT TO UNDERSTAND THE EVOLUTION OF I SYSTEM OF POLICING AND PUBLIC SAFETY THE CURRENT STATE OF OUR POLICE IN SYSTEMS AND THE IMPLICATION OF MASS INCARCERATION ARE RELATED TO POLICY DECISIONS THAT DEVELOP WITH THE OF THE 13 OF MEN OF THE CONSTITUTION IN THE AFTERMATH OF THE EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION THE 13TH AMENDMENT WOW CREATING THE FRAMEWORK FOR THE ABOLISHMENT OF RACIAL SLAVERY OR INVOLUNTARY SERVING 2 IT ALSO BUILT IN AN EXTRAORDINARY CONSTITUTION KNOW EXCEPTION FOR EXCLAVE MITT FOR CITIZENS CONVICTED OF A CRIMINAL OFFENSE

THIS EXCEPTION SET THE FOUNDATION FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF UNSUSTAINABLE SYSTEM OF MASS INCARCERATION THAT EXISTS TO THIS PRESENT DAY THE POLICY DECISIONS TO DEVELOP A NEW FORM OF A SLAVE IT WAS TO ADDRESS JUST AS WE SAW IT IS WE SEE TODAY THE POLICY HELPED TO OLIVIA ALLEVIATE FEARS BECAUSE SINCE LEHMAN CONTINUE CONVICT LEASING CONVICT LEASE LEASING WAS A POLICY DECISION THAT ESTABLISHED A SYSTEM THAT TARGET THERE RECENTLY AND THAT THE MASSIVE PAID IT AND ON HIM FLOORED FREE MEN AND WOMEN BY CHARGING THEM WITH CRIMES THE SYSTEM OF BAIL FINES FEES AND WARNS DEVELOP SHORTLY AT THE EMANCIPATION RECONSTRUCTION TO EXPLORE IT A NEW LABOR FORCE WHERE PEOPLE PAY WHEN THIS UP ALLEYS TO LEASE ACCOMMODATE TO CREATE A PIPELINE OF CALM VICK’S STATES CREATIVE POLICIES KNOW THIS BLACK HOLES UNDER THE BLACK HOLE’S MANY STATES REQUIRE BLACK PEOPLE TO CITE YEARLY LABOR CONTRACTS. AND IF THEY REFUSE THEY WERE RISK BEING ARRESTED FI IN FORCED INTO UNPAID LABOR ONE OF THE EARLY FORMS OF POLICING ONCE THE SYSTEM OF SLAVE PATROLS DWIGHT ME AND WERE ORGANIZED TO MONITOR AND ENFORCE DISCIPLINE ONE IN SLAVE BLACK PEOPLE SLAVE PATROLS FORMALLY AFTER THE CIVIL WAR ENDED IT WHERE FORMERLY A SLAVE PEOPLE SAW LITTLE RELIEF FOR RACIST GOVERNMENT POLICIES AS THEY PROMPTLY BECAME SUBJECT TO THE BLACK HOLES SO BETWEEN 1865 1868 BLACK HOLES DICTATED MUCH OF THE LIES OF AFRICAN AMERICANS THE COAST DETERMINE WHAT AFRICAN AMERICANS WORK WHERE THEY PACIFIC AMOUNTS THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN COULD BE HATE. TURNED INTO NO PAY LET YOU KNOW GENERATIONAL SERVANT TO THE KOHL’S ALSO RESTRICTING TRAVEL IN PLACE LIMITATIONS ON WHERE AFRICAN AMERICANS CAN LIVE WHY THE RATIFICATION OF THE 14 AMENDMENT IN 1868 QUICKLY MADE THAT THAT COAST ILLEGAL BY GIVING FORMERLY ENSLAVED BLACK PEOPLE EQUAL PROTECTION OF LAW ALL. THROUGH THE CONSTITUTION ON EQUAL POLICY FOLLOWED IMMEDIATELY AFTER JIM CROW LAWS WERE INTRODUCED AS SUBJUGATING AFRICAN AMERICANS IN THE 9 TO CIVIL RIGHTS JIM CROW LAWS WERE ENACTED A CALL 7. AND SOME NORTHERN STATES WE PLACING THE BLACK HOLES FOR ABOUT 80 YEARS JIM CROW MANDATED SEPARATE PUBLIC SPACES FOR BLACKS AND WHITES SUCH AS SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES AND WATER FOUNTAINS AND RESTAURANTS AND THEN FOR SUNDAY AND WAS PART OF THE POLICE JOBS. I REPEAT FOR ALMOST 80 YEARS; JIM CROW LAWS MANDATED SEPARATE SPACES FOR BLACKS AND WHITES. SUCH AS SCHOOLS LIBRARIES WATER FOUNTAIN RESTAURANTS AND ENFORCING THEM PART OF THE POLICE SHOPS BLACK WHO BROKE LAW ALSO OF LATEST SOCIAL NORMS ALSTON INDOOR POLICE BRUTALITY SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN HANDED DOWN TO THE BLACK COMMUNITIES. FOR GENERATIONS MEANWHILE THE AUTHORITIES OFTEN DID NOT PUNISH THE PERPETRATORS WHEN AFRICAN AMERICANS WERE INMATES NOR DID THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM HOLD THE POLICE ACCOUNTABLE FOR FAILING TO INTERVENE WHEN BLACK PEOPLE WERE BEING MURDERED BY MOBS THIS FORM OF MOB DALLAS WAS NOT ISOLATED TO THE SELF. IT ALSO OCCURRED HERE IN MINNESOTA ON JUNE; 1519 20. AN OF 10;000 PEOPLE BRUTALLY BEAT AND LORENZ 3 BLACK MEANS. ELI US CLAYTON JACKSON. AND AS I AM ISAIAH WITH E AT THE CLAYTON JACKSON MCGHIE WERE KILLED PEOPLE GATHERED AROUND THERE HE STRODE OUT LISTEN PEOPLE AS IT WAS KILL PEOPLE GATHER AROUND THEIR BODIES AND DOZENS OF WHITE MEN STILL SMELLING FOR A PHOTOGRAPH THAT MADE THEM INTO POST CARS

IT WAS SO IT’S SO MANY YEARS NO ONE WAS EVER CONVICTED FOR THE MURDERS OF CLAYTON JACKSON IN THAT HEAT FOR THE PAST 5 DECADES; THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS GOVERNMENT HAS FORBIDDEN THE RACES REGULATIONS AT THE STATE AND LOCAL LEVEL. YET PEOPLE OF COLOR; I STILL MORE LIKELY TO BE KILLED BY POLICE THAN WHITES THE WASHINGTON POST TRACKED DATA ON THE NUMBER OF AMERICAN KILLED BY POLICE ENCOUNTERS IN A ITS TRACK TO MY RACE AND GENDER OF THE CHARACTERISTICS IN TWENTY-EIGHTEEN THE DATA INDICATE IT THAT THERE WERE 99 TO 2 PEOPLE WHO WERE WHO DIED DURING A POLICE INTERACTION IN A DATA SHOWED THAT 22% OF THOSE DEATHS WERE BLACK. AND THAT MAY SEEM LOW BUT IS VERY HIGH WITH ONLY 12% OF THE COUNTRY. IT’S BLACK THERE ARE NO RECENT DESPAIRS IN MINNESOTA RELATED TO PUBLIC SAFETY IN IN 20 ’03 THE COUNCIL ON CRIME AND JUSTICE STUDY RAISES DISPARITIES IN ROUTINE TRAFFIC STOP. IN OVER 65 TO US DIXON’S IN MINNESOTA AND WHAT THEY FOUND WAS THAT DRIVE US OF COLOR ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE FOR OVER IN WEISS CAN’T THROW DOWN HE’S GOING TO BE THAT THE TITLES ALYSSA THEY FOUND THAT PEOPLE DOWN THAT DRIVERS ON MORE LIKELY TO BE PULLED OVER FOR EQUIPMENT VIOLATION WAS PULLED OVER A DRIVER IS A COLOR ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE SEARCH THEY FOUND THAT BAG DRIVERS ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE SEARCHED BECAUSE OF A OF OFFICERS SAFETY ONE SEARCH BLACK DRIVERS WERE LESS LIKELY TO BE FOUND WITH CONTRABAND DRIVERS A CAR WERE MORE LIKELY TO BE ARRESTED AFTER A TRAFFIC STOP. AND SO TO UNDERSTAND THE DISPARITIES WE SEE IN POLICING TODAY WE MUST UNDERSTAND THAT THE LEGALLY SANCTION SYSTEMIC RACISM OF DECADES CENTURIES AGO STILL MATTERS. THERE’S A LEGACY OF PUBLIC POLICY DECISIONS THIS SERVES TO REINFORCE INEQUALITIES IN JUSTICE SYSTEM IN A LEGACY OF RESISTANCE TO ADVANCE CIVIL RIGHTS THE WAVE OF MASS INCARCERATION ASSOCIATED WITH THE 13 OF MINUTE HAS A LEGACY THAT CONTINUES DOWN TO THIS PRESENT DAY WE HAVE SOME GENERAL FINDINGS FOURTH-CENTURY SYSTEMIC RACISM HIS CONTRIBUTE TO THE STOCK AND PERSISTENT RACIAL DISPARITIES IN HEALTH. IT’S OCCASION. PUBLIC SAFETY IN WEALTH AND FINANCIAL WELL-BEING THESE DISPARITIES CAN BE TRACED BACK TO GOVERNMENT SANCTION LAWS AND POLICIES THAT CREATED A SYSTEM BUILT ON RACIAL INEQUALITIES WHERE INEQUITIES IS IN TRANCE IN OUR SYSTEMS OUR SYSTEMS. WE ARE THE ONES GOVERNMENT SANCTION RACIAL DISCRIMINATION CREATED THESE INEQUITIES. AND ONLY RACIALLY CONSCIOUS POLICIES CAN ADDRESS THE INEQUITIES I’M GOING TO REPEAT THAT GOVERNMENT SANCTION RACIAL DISCRIMINATION CREATED THESE INEQUITIES. AND ONLY RACIALLY. CONSCIOUS POLICIES CAN ADDRESS THESE INEQUITIES EACH YEAR THAT GOALS WERE AND SYSTEMIC RACISM STATE IN MY NATION. BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IT IS IMPERATIVE ON THE MINNESOTA LEGISLATURE TO MAKE AMENDS FOR PAST AND PRESENT CAUSED BY PRIORITIZING THE ENACTMENT OF LAWS AND POLICIES DESIGNED TO ADDRESS RACIAL DISPARITIES AND EXPAND ACCESS TO OPPORTUNITY TO BUILD A PROSPEROUS TASTE FOR ALL MINNESOTANS MINNESOTANS I BELIEVE AND WANT TO BELIEVE ENOUGH IN ONE MINNESOTA BUT THAT IS UP TO US WITH THAT ONE MINNESOTA LOOKS LIKE SO AS DOCUMENTED IN THIS REPORT HISTORY AND OUT AND THAT AT LEAST A SELECT COMMITTEE TO COME TO CONCLUDE. THE FOLLOWING SYSTEMIC RACISM EXISTS SYSTEMIC RACISM IS HARMFUL IT’S A STUDENT AND RACISM MUST BE ADDRESSED AND SO BEFORE US WE HAVE SOME RECOMMENDATIONS SET FORTH ON FOLLOWING PAGES WHICH WE BELIEVE IMPORTANT STEPS INTO DRESSING

I STAY PERSISTENT DISPARITIES YOU KNOW WE ARE KNOWN FOR SO MANY GOOD THINGS BUT WE ARE CONSISTENTLY KNOW FOR A GREAT DISPARITIES PERSONALLY I AM TIRED OF BEEN KNOWN FOR THE DISPARITIES THAT WE FIGHT MINNESOTA ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT I BELIEVE THAT WE CAN. THE BETTER I BELIEVE THAT WE CAN DO BETTER WE HAVE TO BE CONSCIOUSLY AWARE. ALSO AND SO I WAS STOPPED THERE BEFORE WE GO TO ANY OF THE RECOMMENDATION THEY SEE AN EX ANYONE YOU HAVE PLEASE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS WE ARE AT THE 2.31 MARK AND WE ARE GOING IN AT 3 O’CLOCK AND REALIZE THAT YOU KNOW IT IS A LOT SALON INFORMATION AND SO THIS IS WHERE WE ARE REPRESENT A RICH TO SEND MEMBERS YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS BEFORE WE MOVE THROUGH THESE RECOMMENDATION WE’RE NOT WOULD NOT GO THROUGH ALL OF THEM BUT WE DO WANT TO HIGHLIGHT SOME OF THEM AND I’M GOING TO HAND IT OVER TO REPRESENTATIVES WITH SANTA >> THANK YOU OUR CULTURE MORAN; SO IN TERMS THE WAY THAT RECOMMENDATIONS WERE PUT TOGETHER THE FIRST SERIES LOOKS AT A NUMBER OF CALM ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ALL RECOMMENDATIONS AND THEY’VE BEEN DIVIDED INTO OUR RECOMMENDATIONS THAT DON’T REQUIRE NEW FUNDING; SO IT’S REALLY LOOKING AT LEGISLATION THAT WE ALREADY HAVE THE AND IT’S MORE ABOUT ENFORCING ALL THOSE THINGS AND ALSO THINKING ABOUT SOME OF THE DIFFERENT POLICY DECISIONS THAT CAN BE MADE THAT DON’T NECESSARILY REQUIRE NEW LEGISLATION IN TERMS OF THINKING THROUGH VETTING PROCESS LOOK A REDESIGN OF THE REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL PROCESS WE HEARD TESTIFIERS THAT CAN OFF OFTEN TIMES THE MORE OF A TEST WHO’S BEST AT FILLING OUT PAPERWORK; THEN IT CAN BE OF WHO IS INGRAINED WITHIN THE COMMUNITY DOING SPECIFIC SET OF THINKING ABOUT WAYS THAT CONTRACTS CAN ON BOND SO THAT THERE CAN BE HIGHER PARTICIPATION OF SMALL BUSINESSES SMALL MINORITY AND WOMEN-OWNED BUSINESSES AND ALSO THINKING ABOUT I’M LOOKING AT CONTRACT SPECIFICATIONS TO REMOVE THINGS THAT NOT BE NECESSARY TO GO TO TO THE PURPOSE A I WILL LET YOU ALL JUST SORT OF LOOK AT THE DIFFERENT POLICIES THAT DON’T NECESSARILY REQUIRE ON NEW FUNDING IF YOU SCROLL DOWN I THERE ARE POLICIES THAT WOULD AND BEST MAN 7 QUITE UP ASH HERE WAS PULLED FROM DOCTOR COREY IN TERMS OF BIPOC CAPITAL FUND THOSE ARE THINGS THAT CONTINUED TO BE RECOMMENDATIONS I THINK ACROSS REPORTS AND I SEE REPRESENTATIVE I KNEW HAS RAISED YOUR HAND >> THANK YOU MADAM CHAIR; I I’M A LITTLE CONCERNED WE SPENT A LOT OF TIME GOING OVER WHAT WE HEARD IN COMMITTEE. I THINK ALL OF US READ THE REPORT AHEAD OF TIME SO WE SPENT A LOT OF REVIEWING REPORT I’M CONCERNED THAT WE’RE NOT GOING TO CALL INTO DETAIL ABOUT THE RECOMMENDATIONS NONE OF THIS HAS BEEN HEARD IN SO I’M CONCERNED THAT WE’RE NOT ACTUALLY GOING TO GO THROUGH ALL OF THE PROPOSALS >> I GUESS JUST A COMMENT I GUESS JUST A WELL I THINK YOU REPRESENTED OO I CLEARLY HEARD YOU SAY THAT MOST OF US HAVE READ THE DOCUMENTS WHICH MEANS YOU ALSO SEEING THE RECOMMENDATIONS WHY DON’T WE JUST GO RIGHT INTO THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF ANYONE HAVE ANY JUST AS THE COMMENTS AROUND THE RECOMMENDATIONS. ANYTHING THAT YOU HEARD WHY DON’T WE START NOW WE HAVE IT IS TO 34; WE’VE GOT A GOOD 20 MINUTES OR SO TO TO DO THAT REPRESENTS STEVE’S IN THEM YOUR MOTHER YOUR NEW DAD >> THANKS VERY MUCH. I REALLY THE PRESENTATION OF THE COMMITTEE SO I AGREE WITH REPRESENTING NEW THAT ALL OF US A CHANCE TO READ IT’S IT’S IMPORTANT TO PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO GET NOT ONLY THE HISTORY; BUT ALSO THE IMPLICATIONS OF THAT HISTORY SHOULD HAVE A COUPLE OF JUST AS TOBACCO MANUFACTURERS HAVE AND LOVE FOCUSED ON GLOBAL POPULATION MAY BE BIPOC ON THE CIGARETTES AND AND CIGARETTE SALES. I THINK ALSO GOING THE GUN ORGANIZATIONS AT. >> SOME HAVE SOME RESPONSIBILITY FOR POSING LEGISLATION WHICH MIGHT ENCOURAGE

GUN SAFETY I THINK GUN VIOLENCE DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTS BLACK COMMUNITY OUR COMMUNITIES WELLS WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOME EMPHASIS THERE SHE. THE OTHER ISSUE IS THE SITUATION THERE WAS THERE ISN’T SOME CONVERSATION REINTEGRATION OF INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE BEEN RELEASED FROM INCARCERATION AND I AND ON TO MILLION WITH THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF BIPOC ALL WITHIN CURSOR INCARCERATION BUT I WOULD REALLY. ATTENTION PREPARATIONS FOR ALL PEOPLE PARTICULAR BY A COUPLE READ EQUAL CITIZENS AFTER THEIR TIME PRISON AND FINALLY I REPUBLICANS TALKING ABOUT EDUCATION AND CIVIC EDUCATION AGREE WITH THAT WHOLEHEARTEDLY AND AGREE NOT ONLY WITH THE PRESENTATION OF CIVIC EDUCATION AND IN CLASSROOMS; BUT THE EXPERIENCE OF PARTICIPATED OUR OUR CITY CAN INSTITUTIONS PLACES LIBERY THAT I FOUNDED I THINK DIFFICULT IT AND THEN USED PEOPLE CALLED TO HAVE A STRONG PRESENCE CENTERS IN CONVERSATION SO THOSE ARE 3 ISSUES THAT I RESPOND TO ANY AND I WANT TO SAY THANKS FOR IMPRESSIVE REPORT WHICH I THINK NOT ONLY IS REALLY COMPREHENSIVE ALSO REALLY WELL WRITTEN SO; THANKS VERY MUCH ALL THE PARTICIPATING IN CONTRIBUTING TO THAT >> OUR UPS AND OUT FOR FOR YOUR I THINK A COUPLE OF THINGS JUST TO HIGHLIGHT IN TERMS YOU KNOW WE’RE THINKING ABOUT THE OF GUN DOUBTS ON MINNESOTA; WE KNOW THAT 79% OF THE GUN DEATHS IN WORSE OR ARE SUICIDES AND YOU KNOW THERE A NUMBER OUT. ISSUES THAT WE HAVE NOT NECESSARILY DOWN INTO WITH THIS REPORT AND THERE ARE A NUMBER OF ISSUES THAT WE HAVEN’T OUT THAT WE DIDN’T AND TO JUST THINKING ABOUT OVERALL THE SHORT TIME FRAME THAT WE HAD AROUND 5 DIFFERENT HEARINGS AND SO I WOULD JUST SAY THAT IN TERMS OF THE WORK THAT’S BEEN PUT TOGETHER THIS IS IN NO WAY MEANT TO BE THAT THIS IS THE ONE ONLY TO THINK ABOUT HOW WE BEGAN TO MOVE THE NEEDLE ON JUSTICE AND SYSTEMIC BUT IT IS IT’S IT’S A STEP FORWARD AND SO I DO WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT JUST WITH LIMITED TIME OUT WE TO DO THIS ALL WORK AS A COMMITTEE I I DON’T WANT ANYONE TO SEE OUR COMMITTEE HEARINGS AS THESE ARE THE ONLY ISSUES THAT ARE IMPORTANT I DON’T WANT ANYONE TO SEE THESE RECOMMENDATIONS AS THESE ARE THE ONLY ONES BUT REALLY IT’S IT’S IT’S MORE OF AS A STEPPING STONE. AND APPRECIATE YOU’RE THE THE NEED FOR EDUCATION I WOULD NOT BUILD ON THAT AS CIVIC EDUCATION FINANCIAL ON IS ALSO CRITICAL AND ALSO UP NEXT MORAN AND I HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO SET DOWN STUDENTS FROM ACROSS MINNESOTA FROM YOU KNOW ALL ABOUT ALL THE HOUSE DISTRICTS AND TO HEAR FROM SPECIFICALLY ABOUT WHAT WERE SOME OF THE ISSUES THAT WERE IMPORTANT TO THEM AND MOTIVATING TO THEM AND THAT WAS AS PART OF A I SENATORS AND ALSO REPRESENTATIVES AS WELL AND 2 OF THE THEMES THAT WERE REALLY CONSISTENT AMONG ALL OF THOSE STUDENTS WAS THE NEED FOR MORE 7 BUT ALSO THE NEED FOR MORE FINANCIAL LITERACY TO HELP PREPARE.

AND GET UP TO SPEED BECAUSE IT ISN’T ENOUGH TO JUST SAY THAT SYSTEMIC RACISM EXISTS AND YOU FEEL BAD ABOUT IT I THINK YOU KNOW WHAT I THINK THIS WORK IS WHY WE NEED THIS REPORT WITH ACTUAL RECOMMENDATIONS AND TO POINT TO THINGS THAT CAN BE DONE IS THAT WE WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT

OR THESE THESE INEQUITIES IN THESE PROBLEMS AND ALL THESE THINGS NEGATIVELY IMPACT OUR ENTIRE COMMUNITIES. WELL WILL CONTINUE. SO I I I KNOW SOME OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS ARE BOLDER THAN MAYBE SOME FOLKS ARE READY FOR BUT I MEAN THIS IS WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN FOR FOR REAL CHANGE TO HAPPEN AND I THINK YOU KNOW THAT THAT’S GOING TO MAKE SOME FOLKS UNCOMFORTABLE BUT IT WILL IT’S WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN IT FOR IF WE REALLY MEAN WHAT WE SAY WHEN WE SAY WE WANT ADDRESS SYSTEMIC RACISM AND JUST I REALLY THINK THANK EVERYBODY FOR THEIR TIME AND BEING OPEN TO MAYBE LEARNING SOMETHING SAID THAT YOU DIDN’T KNOW BEFORE I KNOW EVEN YOU KNOW AS SOMEBODY WHO TRIES TO KEEP UP WITH THINGS DIFFERENT THAT THAT WE’RE NEW TO ME AND REALLY ALSO APPRECIATED THE TESTIFIERS THAT CAME IN WE JUST REALLY SOME REALLY GOOD TESTIMONY REALLY IMPACTFUL AND I FEEL LIKE WE HAD THE RIGHT VOICES WERE TO SHARE WITH US SO WILL LOOKING FORWARD TO SUPPORTING THIS CONTINUING THIS ONCE THE SELECT COMMITTEE WRAPS UP SO THANK YOU >> THANK YOU AM AND ALSO WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE REPORT AS WELL IN TERMS OF REALLY BEING ABLE AROUND THE BOARDING SCHOOL AIR WELL SO THANK YOU YOUR YOUR RELATED RELATED TO AND SO I THINK SO WE GOT 3 HANDS UP AND IF I SAW THEM GOING IN THE RIGHT ORDER.

COME IN EVERYBODY ON THE COMMITTEE FOR THIS REALLY EXTENSIVE AND COMPREHENSIVE LIST OF POLICY CHANGES RECOMMEND PATIENTS I THINK YOU KNOW THE ONE THING THAT WE’VE LEARNED THIS PROCESS IS IT’S NOT JUST ONE DISPARITIES IN OUR COMMUNITIES YOU KNOW THERE’S HISTORY BEHIND IT AND MANY REASON SURE FOR THE INEQUALITY THAT WE HAVE HERE IN THE STATE AND SO WITH THAT IN MIND I THINK THAT THESE DO HIT A LOT THE DIFFERENT BUT IT’S POLICY CHANGES THAT WE CAN MAKE WE KNOW IT’S NOT JUST DISPARITIES IN EDUCATION; WE KNOW IT’S NOT JUST DISPARITIES IN PUBLIC SAFETY THERE’S DISPARITIES ACROSS THE BOARD AND WE NEED TO ACROSS THE BOARD SO I THINK THAT THIS REALLY AND DETAIL LIST POLICY RECOMMENDATIONS IS AMAZING WORK. AND I’M REALLY EXCITED TO GET BEHIND THEM AND DO WHATEVER I CAN TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE JUST RECOMMENDATIONS THAT THEY BECOME PUBLIC POLICY >> THANK YOU REPRESENTATIVE CAN’T GO. I STIRRED >> THANK YOU COACH SHARES RICHARDSON MORAN; WAS VERY HONORED TO VICE CHAIR THIS COMMITTEE. IT WAS GREAT INFORMATION NOT ENOUGH TIME EVEN THOUGH IT DID TAKE QUITE A BIT OF TIME THAT WE’VE HEARD THANK YOU TO ALL OF THE STAFF FOR THE WORK THAT’S BEEN PUT INTO THIS COMMITTEE THE DETAILS REPORT AND ALSO TO THE TESTIFIERS THE EXPERTS THAT WE HEARD IT WAS INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT TO HEAR THE BIG OVERARCHING ISSUES OF RACIAL INJUSTICE AND. THOSE THINGS THAT WE’RE ALL FACED WITH I WANT TO START OFF BY SAYING THAT SYSTEMIC RACISM RACISM IS NOT AN ISSUE ONLY FROM MINNESOTA BUT ACROSS THE UNITED STATES. IT’S AN ISSUE THAT WE AS A LEGISLATIVE BODY NEED TO ADDRESS I DO AGREE WITH THE GENERAL FINDINGS AS OUTLINED IN 3 AREAS. I DO SUPPORT MANY OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS INCLUDED IN THE REPORT; HOWEVER THERE ARE MANY RECOMMENDATIONS INCLUDING THE REPORT ON TOPICS THAT THE COMMITTEE AS A WHOLE DID NOT HAVE HEARINGS AS WE’VE ALREADY MENTIONED PUBLIC SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENTAL. JUSTICE FOR JUST 2 THERE HAVE BEEN COMMENTS MADE THAT THE PUBLIC SAFETY ISSUES WERE DISCUSSED IN THE PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE AND THAT WE DID NOT NEED TO DISCUSS THE END OF THE SELECT COMMITTEE ON RACIAL JUSTICE. I WOULD PROBABLY LOOK BAD BECAUSE FOR A FEW REASONS NONE OF THE GOP MEMBERS ON THIS COMMITTEE SAID ON THE PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE SO WE WERE PRIVY TO THE DISCUSSIONS THAT AND THE TESTIMONY THAT TAKEN PLACE IN PREVIOUS COMMITTEE SECONDLY MAKING THE RECOMMENDATIONS ON A TOPIC THAT WAS DISCUSSED IN THE DIFFERENCE COMMITTEE SETS A BAD PRECEDENT THIS COMMITTEE; THE SELECT COMMITTEE AND RACIAL JUSTICE

WAS TASKED WITH HAVING TOUGH CONVERSATIONS AND COMING UP WITH TOUGH SOLUTIONS REGARDING SYSTEMIC RACISM AND THAT CAN HAPPEN IF WE DON’T HAVE HEARINGS ON THESE IMPORTANT TOPICS WITH RESPECT TO THE ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE RECOMMENDATIONS I WAS PERSONALLY ABLE TO HEAR THAT TESTIMONY IN OUR SMALL GROUP MEETING AND THE INFORMATION PRESENTED WAS INCREDIBLY INSIGHTFUL WELL I APPRECIATED HEARING THE TESTIMONY THE SMALL GROUP MEETINGS WEREN’T PUBLIC AND IT’S A DISSERVICE TO MEMBERS OF THIS COMMITTEE AND MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC TO TAKE TESTIMONY IN A PRIVATE SMALL GROUP SETTING AND THEN INCLUDE THOSE RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THAT TESTIMONY IN A FINAL COMMITTEE REPORT AS VICE CHAIR I WAS NOT CONSULTED AND HAD NO PART OF DRAFTING THIS FINAL REPORT I DID GET TO SEE A PREVIEW BUT IT WAS DONE I’M ALSO DISAPPOINTED THAT MOST OF THE GOP RECOMMENDATIONS MADE ON SCHOOL CHOICE WERE NOT INCLUDED IN THE FINAL RECOMMENDATIONS WHILE THE COMMITTEE DID NOT HAVE A HEARING ON RACIAL JUSTICE ISSUES IN THE EDUCATION SYSTEM THE ISSUE WAS BROUGHT UP FREQUENTLY DURING OUR PUBLIC TESTIMONY THIS COMMITTEE HAS DONE A GREAT JOB OF LAYING THE GROUNDWORK AND CONTEXT FOR RACIAL JUSTICE ISSUES THAT ARE PREVALENT IN VARIOUS SYSTEMS THROUGHOUT OUR COMMUNITIES IN OUR STATE BUT I CANNOT IN GOOD CONSCIENCE VOTE FOR OR ASK THE REPUBLICAN MEMBERS OF THIS COMMITTEE TO VOTE FOR THESE RECOMMENDATIONS MAY 9 TOPICS DISCUSSED IN OUR 5 COMMITTEE HEARINGS AND WHERE THERE WAS NO PUBLIC INPUT I WILL NOT BE SUPPORTING THESE RECOMMENDATIONS TODAY BUT I AM COMMITTED TO CONTINUING THIS WORK IN THE NEXT LEGISLATIVE SESSION AND DEVELOPING POSITIVE AND SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS THAT WILL ADDRESS CAUSES OF RACIAL INJUSTICE MINNESOTA IS A GREAT STATE AND WE NEED TO ENSURE THAT OPPORTUNITIES ARE AVAILABLE TO ALL. SO IF THAT THANK YOU COACH SHARES RICHARD CENTER AND SPEND THE REST OF THE COMMITTEE >> THANK YOU VICE CHAIR GAME AS FOR THOSE YOU KNOW ONE THING I DO JUST WANT TO MAKE CLEAR AND TURNS OUT BY I UNDERSTAND YOUR CONCERNS AROUND THE PUBLIC SAFETY TIE-IN THAT MOUNT OUT YOUR MEMBERS WERE ON PUBLIC SAFETY. I WAS NOT ON PUBLIC SAFETY I THERE; BUT I KNEW HOW IMPORTANT THOSE CONVERSATIONS WERE ALL WE’RE ALL ARE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE IN THOSE COMMITTEES AND MANY OF US ON THESE CALLS EVEN THOUGH WE’RE NOT ON COMMITTEE PARTICIPATED WITH AND THOSE CALLS AS BECAUSE WE WERE JUST AT REALLY DIFFICULT AND THE AFTERMATH OF GEORGE OF GEORGE FLOYD AND I GET THAT WE ALL HAVE TO MAKE SORT OF DECISIONS THAT WE HAVE WITH OUR TIME OF WHERE WE’RE GOING TO TO PUT IT; BUT I DO ALSO WANT TO RECOGNIZE THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO EARN ON THOSE COMMITTEES WHO GET PARTICIPATE. AND THOSE AND DOING SO. AND I’M ALSO HIGHLIGHTING FULL DAY EIGHT-HOUR SESSION THAT WHAT’S PERCENT A JOINT COMMITTEE HEARING BETWEEN EDUCATION POLICY IN AT FINANCE BACK THERE THERE INVITES THAT WENT OUT TO ALL MEMBERS OF ALL 135 MEMBERS TO PARTICIPATE AGAIN I KNOW THAT NOT EVERYONE HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO PARTICIPATE BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS ALL OF THOSE THINGS WERE RECORDED AND THERE’S PUBLIC TESTIMONY ON EACH OF THOSE THINGS AND THE ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE. HE SAYS WHILE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT TO HAVE MORE TIME TO BE ABLE INCLUDE THOSE I AGREE WITH YOU 100%. WE WERE PRESSED FOR TIME BUT THOSE ARE RECOMMENDATIONS THAT ARE ACTUAL BILLS THAT HAVE BEEN ALL HEARD AND THERE THERE IS A RECORD I RELATED TO THOSE THINGS WHERE ABOUT 400 YEARS LATE HAVING THIS DISCUSSION SO THERE’S A LOT THAT WE MESSED I WILL ACKNOWLEDGE 100% WE’RE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO COVER EVERYTHING THAT IS THERE BUT DEFINITELY WE YOU. AND YOUR SUPPORT OF THE RESOLUTION AND LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH WOW AND SO LONG CAN YOU I TAKE US HOME MORE AND CLOSE THIS. OF THOSE THINGS OUT FOR US >> IT IS HOPED WILL BE VERY BRIEF AND THEY SHOWING ON TIME I JUST WANTED TO COMMEND HER CO CHAIRS AND STAFF FOR TAKING ON WHAT IS A NEAR-IMPOSSIBLE TASK OF COVERING ENTIRE HISTORY OF RACIAL INJUSTICE IN OUR STATE AND PUTTING INTO WRITTEN FORM IN A AND ALSO BRINGING US UP TO DATE ON THE CURRENT STATE OF RACIAL INEQUITIES IN OUR STATE SO I’M JUST. INCREDIBLY IMPRESSED WITH THE WORK THAT YOU ALL BEEN ABLE TO DO JUGGLING LEGISLATIVE WORKING OTHER JOBS AND EVERYTHING ELSE OF YOU DO TO. BRING THIS COMMITTEE TOGETHER TO PUT THIS REPORT TOGETHER I FOR TAKE THE RECOMMENDATIONS AS A STARTING POINT WE’RE NOT ADOPTING LEGISLATIVE LANGUAGE TODAY WE’RE NOT TALKING ABOUT. DETAILS WE’RE TALKING ABOUT

I THINK PRETTY HIGH LEVEL INSTRUCTIONS FOR DIRECTIONS OF THE COMMITTEES CAN TAKE AND I KNOW THAT THE SELECT COMMITTEE IS WRAPPING UP ITS THIS MONTH BUT I’M REALLY HOPEFUL THAT AN OPTIMISTIC THAT WITH THE MEMBERSHIP WE HAVE HERE AND WITH OUR OTHER MEMBERS WHO WHO I THINK WE’RE GOING TO TAKE THIS WORK BACK TO THIS CAN BE SPREAD OUT ACROSS EVERY SINGLE ONE OF OUR COMMITTEES AND I THINK THE BREAST OF THE REPORT IN THE PRESENT RECOMMENDATIONS MAKE THAT POSSIBLE I FOR ONE KNOW THAT ON THE ENERGY COMMITTEE I’M GOING TO BE HEAVILY FOCUSED ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE ON SOME OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS HERE SO. I HOPE THAT THIS WORK AND CONTINUE INTO THIS WILL BE A STARTING POINT >> SO WITH I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU ALL YOU CAN AND YOU WE ARE GOING TO MOVE TO A VOTE THE MOTION TO MOVE DO UNDERSTAND THAT YOU KNOW IS ABUNDANCE OF RECOMMENDATION >> BUT THERE’S HUGE DISPARITIES WITHIN BUT THEN I STATES THAT ALLOWS US TO HAVE TO DIG DEEP INTO DIFFERENT AREAS IN DIFFERENT WAYS THAT WE AS A LEGISLATURE CAN SEIZE GET SOME IDEAS OF HOW WE CAN MOVE FORWARD IN THIS STATE TO REALLY WORK ON A NICK WHAT EASE THAT IS PENETRATING. I STATES. AND SO I DO BELIEVE WITHIN THE RECOMMENDATIONS THERE IS OF A SPACE IN THERE AROUND CIVICS AND FINANCIAL LITERACY EMBEDDED IN THAT IT IS STAIR I DO THE PUBLIC SAFETY PIECE BUT YOU KNOW WE SPENT IN THIS LEGISLATIVE BODY NY I WAS ON A SATURDAY TALKING ABOUT MANY OF THESE RECOMMENDATION THAT IS THE BEFORE US WITH THE POLICE ACCOUNTABILITY PIECES THAT HAPPENED IN HIS IN HIS BODY YOU KNOW ALL STAY IN THAT WE SPEND LOTS OF TIME AS LEGISLATORS MAKING DECISIONS. WE IN WE CREATE A CONFERENCE COMMITTEE WHO GO OFF TO NEGOTIATE AND MAKE DECISIONS IN BRING HIM BACK YOU KNOW I’VE NOT BEEN IN EVERY CONVERSATION WE NOT HAVE BEEN A PART OF EVERY >> EVERY CONVERSATION BILLS COMPENSATIONS OR HER FROM ALL THE PEOPLE THAT THEY TOOK THE TIME HIMSELF. TO ENGAGE WELL BUT WE MAKE DECISIONS ABOUT WHETHER NOT THE CONCEPT IS SOMETHING THAT WE CAN INVEST AND MOVE FORWARD THE CONCEPT OR RACIAL DISPARITIES IN THE FINDINGS OF THESE COMMUNITIES ARE WHAT THEY ARE THEY HAVE BEEN A BURDEN NOT ONLY ON MINNESOTA BACK COUNTRY FOR OVER 400 YEARS. THESE ARE RECOMMENDATIONS THAT’S ALL THEY ARE. THAT WE HOPE THEY IN A FORCE IN THE 2021 LEGISLATIVE SESSION THAT LEGISLATORS WE’LL BE ABLE TO GO TO A DOCUMENT AND THERE SOUNDS LIKE A BILL THAT I CAN CARRY AND THEY CAN PICK AND CHOOSE OR NOT YOU KNOW AND MY HOPE IS WE MOVE FORWARD IS THAT WE MOVE. IN A DOT HOUSE SELECT COMMITTEE REPORT IN MOVE FOR IT IS NOW 3 ’03 DON’T WANT TO BE TIME BECAUSE CHRISTMAS IS UPON US. RIGHT YOU GUYS BUT I’M EXCITED ABOUT THAT SO WITH THAT I WOULD LIKE I DON’T THINK HEARD IT’S >> THAT WE MIGHT TOMATO CO CHAIR MORAN; THERE ARE SOME THERE ARE SOME OF THE AT ITS THAT NEED TO BE MADE SO. OKAY; SO IF YOU COULD ENTERTAIN THAT ABSOLUTELY >> SO LIKE TO ENTERTAIN A MOTION TO INSTRUCT STAFF TO MAKE ANY OTHER AND IT’S NECESSARY. FOR FINAL DRAFT ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THAT MOTION PLEASE SAY AYE THE POLLS WITH THAT THAT SO THAT IS MOVED SO STAFF ARE INSTRUCTED TO MAKE ANY DRAMATIC CALL IT IS NECESSARY IN THE FINAL DRAFT AND WITH THAT I’D LIKE TO MOVE ON TO MAKE A TO ADOPT A HOUSE SELECT COMMITTEE ON RACE OR JUST 3 POINT TO THE LEGISLATURE ALL IN FAVOR SAY AYE.
