From Classroom to Action: Meet MN Program Intern Alex Perez!

Through my studies, I was able to not only understand the plight of native people but also learn how larger actions at the state and federal level effect individuals and communities. With this experience in my back pocket, I am excited to be able to apply this to my work in our community here in the Twin Cities and create lasting change for our neighbors.
