Sonia is a working class resident of Northeast Minneapolis. She’s a first-generation immigrant, renter, community organizer, and proud democratic socialist. In 2015, as a college student, she co-founded Women for Political Change (WFPC) a multiracial, youth-led organization that holistically invests in the leadership and political power of young women and trans & non-binary folks in Minnesota.
In our endorsement meeting, Sonia spoke to her personal journey as a young woman struggling with the high cost of rent, precarious minimum-wage work, and a for-profit healthcare system. She is championing a radical platform that includes overturning the state ban on rent control, decriminalizing sex work, and a $15 minimum wage statewide.
