The respondents were overwhelmingly white (91%), and a majority were male (61%); 27% of respondents were women, and 11% were nonbinary or identified with another gender.

    • Support political movements and general organizing? YES 60.9%

These results have given GPMN a lot to think about. Much of the feedback we received was positive, and this gave us a great opportunity to connect with members and supporters! That said, it's clear that we need to do more to support local candidates and party units to build community power, as well as create more inclusive spaces to encourage BIPOC people to participate in our grassroots progressive movement, and that starts with providing Minnesota Greens with opportunities to learn how to be anti-racist (planning in progress). We hope that you will join us as we continue to fight for a more just, equitable, and sustainable world!
