Hi. I’m Mai Chong Xiong, your candidate for Ramsey County Commissioner District 6. More than 10 years ago, as a first generation college student, I committed my life to racial justice work. As a Hmong daughter of refugees who grew up living in poverty, I saw how my family and many in our community bore the brunt of a system that was not built to put equity, working families, and Black, Brown, Indigenous, People of Color at the center of it. I knew this needed to change.
I know building a future rooted in racial, social, & gender justice for all requires us to build a people-powered movement from the ground up. It needs to reflect our deepest hopes and dreams with leaders at the frontlines who lead with boldness and courage.
