We are kicking off Black History Month and LGBT+ History Month with a leadership quote from Andrea Jenkins—the first openly transgender Black woman elected to public office in the U.S.!
Jenkins took office on the Minneapolis City Council in January 2018 after winning 73% of the vote. On her first day, she was elected Vice President of City Council, and soon afterwards helped establish the Race Equity Community Advisory Committee.
She is also an award-winning poet, writer, performer, and curator for the University of Minnesota's Transgender Oral History Project.
