From Public-Health Campaigns in West Africa to the City Council in Brooklyn Park: A Conversation With Wynfred Russell
Wynfred Russell is one of many members of the Liberian diaspora who contribute to their communities back home and here at home in Minnesota. TruthToTell talks with Russell about his experiences fighting Ebola in Liberia, building strong public-health networks in Nigeria, and winning a city council seat in Brooklyn Park.
With the election of Tim Walz as governor and a DFL majority in the Minnesota House of Representatives, progressives have a long list of goals. From criminal-justice reform and gun regulation to climate action and a 21st century transportation system, there just may be room for initiatives that have been long stalled by Republican control of both houses of the legislature.
Joining TruthToTell to share their hopes for 2019 are Annastacia Belladonna-Carrera, executive director of Common Cause Minnesota and active member of the Restore the Vote Coalition, and Reverend Nancy Nord Bence, executive director of Protect Minnesota.
