Whereas Hennepin Healthcare serves a multi-racial, working-class Minnesota and employs many workers of color;    

Whereas Hennepin Healthcare has wide disparities between administrators and front line staff;

 

Whereas the federal government, State of Minnesota, Hennepin County, Ramsey County, City of Minneapolis and City of St. Paul - all recognize Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Juneteenth;    

 

Whereas MLK Day and Juneteenth commemorate history that matters, including the abolition of slavery and the continued struggle for civil rights and economic justice;    

 

Whereas Hennepin Healthcare is refusing to dignify its workers and the community it publicly serves by recognizing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Juneteenth;    

 

We say: Time is up for Hennepin Healthcare to recognize MLK and Juneteenth holidays.

 

Do the right thing, do it today.
