Photo Cutline: Senator Eaton named Champion for Racial Justice

Senator Chris Eaton was recently awarded as a Champion for Racial Justice for the 2012 Minnesota Legislative Report Card on Racial Equality. The Report Card graded the legislative session on how well it moved forward positive bills for racial equality. Senator Eaton was given an A rating overall during the session, due in a large part to her vocal opposition to the Voter ID amendment. Pictured with her is Vina Kay, director of research and policy at the Organizing Apprenticeship Project, the group behind the report.
