TTT1848 Dec 3- 3 Young Women Political activists

From Congress to the State Legislature, in big cities and rural and suburban communities, an amazing number of people from under-represented populations have stepped forward to run for public office and take on positions of public leadership. What does this changing of the guard mean for our communities? To find out, TruthToTell talks to three Minnesotans who personify this cultural and generation shift:

Nikki Villavicencio, a disability rights activist and candidate for the Maplewood City Council

Cheniqua Johnson, the 22-year-old African-American candidate for House District 22B in southwestern Minnesota

Andrea Duarte, creator of Stories from Unheard Voices, a project that documents the lives of Latinos in her hometown of Worthington, Minn.
