Diversity, equity, and inclusion
As an ally and member of the LGBTQ+ Caucus in Congress and someone who has long been involved in efforts to address racial disparities in Minnesota, Dean is committed to listening to, learning from, and acting on behalf of those Minnesotans who have been held back simply because of their race, gender, or sexual identity.
Dean understands that in a country where all are created equal, disparities can only exist because our policies, systems, or structures have—intentionally or otherwise—propagated them.
He is committed to confronting hard truths and ensuring that all Americans enjoy equal opportunities to live comfortably and prosper.
