TCDSA COVID-19 Response: Live Media Conference

The Twin Cities Democratic Socialists of America (TCDSA) responds to the Walz-Flanagan administration’s unscientific and reckless decision to reopen the state with a press conference highlighting stories from impacted Minnesotans. Following the Governor’s lifting of the stay-at-home order on May17, 2020, essential workers and other vulnerable Minnesotans on the frontlines face a difficult choice: covering needs like rent and groceries, or ensuring their safety in COVID-19. Rather than re-opening during a life-threatening pandemic or further deepening our economic inequality, TCDSA believes there is an alternative path. This media conference will be held at the former BIX Produce Co. warehouse purchased by the state of Minnesota for $5.4 million to store the bodies of thousands of Minnesotans who will die in the peak of the pandemic.
