As publisher and editor of the Minnesota Women’s Press platform, I ask our readers: Help us find and share — in virtual forums, in our magazine pages — the stories about community-based economies, green cooperatives, and women-led innovations that are working to truly correct our inequities.
This is exactly why we are overdue in having conversations about how to build equity into our community. We must do work together so that those without privilege are able to improve on financial security.
From my vantage point, status quo unpleasantries in America run deeper than the unpleasant realities of this pandemic. These rooted issues have been addressed before, so I will spare the doom and gloom. What excites me is that I, among a myriad of others, have visions for alternative futures.
