Description

Espinosa is one of several individuals to emerge from the Bernie Sanders movement locally to become prominent in city and state politics. His activist history dates back to helping to organize the Black Lives Matter demonstrations at Mall of America and Occupy Minneapolis. Though Our Revolution is more of a collective and prefers not to hand out titles, Espinosa was one of several figures to take on a decisive role locally and advocate for candidates who adhere to a rather inflexible progressive mantra. Expect the coming year to include efforts at holding down rising housing costs and reducing corporate influence in Minneapolis city government, an area where Espinosa has some history.
