Animate the Race! is intentionally creating a community conversation about the Minneapolis Public Schools board and the school board elections. Join the conversation by signing up below.
During the school board election, Animate the Race Fellows will spend time learning about the candidates and sharing their perspectives to help elevate—and animate—the race.
You can join the conversation by reading our community news and voices section, or attending one of our “meet the candidate” events.
Election Day this year is on Tuesday, November 8. Minneapolis residents will be voting for President of the United States, their state legislative representatives in both the Minnesota House of Representatives and the Minnesota Senate and—way down on the ballot—for Minneapolis Public Schools Board of Directors.
With a few exceptions, the race for Minneapolis School Board often goes relatively unnoticed. In the midst of a heated race for President and competitive legislative races, the school board election can become “invisible” to many voters, who are often under informed.
Animate the Race! seeks to change this: our goal is to shed light on the candidates, engage the Minneapolis community, connect with voters, and animate the Minneapolis School Board race.
Animate the Race Fellows are civically-minded, engaged activists with a racially, geographically, and ideologically diverse set of perspectives. During the school board election, the Fellows will spend time learning about the candidates and sharing their perspectives to help elevate—and animate—the race.
