DFL Caucus, Minnesota House of Representatives
Abou Amara only completed his master of public policy degree a few years ago, but he has already served on advisory boards, advocacy groups and as a committee administrator for the Minnesota House of Representatives. His keen interest in politics has landed him on several DFL political campaigns. In many ways, Amara represents the new face of the party: young, a person of color, and steeped in social justice. He just finished a stint as deputy political director for Al Franken’s reelection campaign against Mike McFadden.
