    State Rep. Moran explains political attack on the Council on Black Minnesotans

    in News

    On the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act and the atrocities in Selma, Alabama, Minnesota’s black elected officials have sold out the black community to protect their lack process in the advancement of black Minnesotans…enough is enough – it’s time to vote them back to private citizenship ASAP! It's only fair we give Minnesota state representative Rena Moran an opportunity to explain to the community and our listeners on why she is a part of this silencing of the black voice. 


    Council on Black Minnesotans board member and state representative Rena Moran has some explaining to do. She, along with representatives Joe Mullery and Carolyn Laine (Columbia Heights) have joined the team of senators Bobby Joe Champion and the controversial Community Action of Minneapolis board member Jeff Hayden to shut down the voice of black Minnesotans through a divisive act of political bullying.


    An informational hearing on HF 1353 has been scheduled for Thursday May 12, 2015 at 8:15 am. HF 1353 (attached) will eliminate the current operational approach of the Council on Black Minnesotans. Representative Laine represents Columbia Heights and is the author of the bill. COBM Board member Representative Moran and former Board member Mullery are signers on the bill. Senator Pappas and Hayden sponsor the senate version of the Bill. There are no other signers at this point on the senate version of the bill.
