HIRE in Minneapolis


HIRE – Healthcare, Infrastructure, and Renewable Energy – has turned out hundreds of people across the Twin Cities, bringing together American Indian, African American, Latino, Hmong and recent immigrant communities.

HIRE’s town hall forums have built toward a day at the capitol, which will take place on April 20. This video shows clips of Louis J King, among others, speaking at a HIRE event in Minneapolis in March 09.
