Blexit's
2017 Everybody Black
Candidate Directory

For our local supporters who choose to exercise their right to vote, Blexit has created this directory of Black candidates running for office in Minneapolis and Saint Paul. You can learn more about these candidates and their platforms by following the links below.

Local press has contributed to the erasure of Black folks' campaigns by providing little to no media coverage. While Blexit does not endorse candidates running for public office, we believe it is important to provide this information to the public.
