Confirmed Speaker: Jacob Frey, Mayor of Minneapolis

April 11, 2018

Hey, you guys! Jacob Frey is going to speak!

 

 

 

Frey is the 48th Mayor of Minneapolis, a former Minneapolis City Council Member, a civil rights attorney, and an  advocate for social justice.

 

He practiced employment and civil rights law at Faegre & Benson (now Faegre Baker Daniels) and later Halunen Law, and became an active community organizer. In 2011, he organized the first Big Gay Race, which raised over $250,000 to help defeat the hateful constitutional amendment against marriage equality. He also became involved in advocacy for the homeless, including helping tenants who lost their homes to the North Side tornado. In 2012, the City of Minneapolis honored him with its inaugural Martin Luther King, Jr. Award for his civil rights work.

In 2013, he successfully ran for City Council in Minneapolis' 3rd Ward with a platform that championed constituent services, increasing residential growth, growing the number and variety of small and local businesses, getting affordable housing fully funded, and helping open a new community-based school to serve the growing number of families living near the central riverfront.
