UPDATE November 2013: Alondra Cano won her bid to represent Ward 9 on the Minneapolis City Council.

Alondra Cano is exactly the type of candidate the MOMocrats had in mind when we first began writing Run, Mama Run profiles: Women whose life experience as mothers shaped their view of the world and gave them the impetus to effect change via the political system.

City Council
Minneapolis, MN Ward 9

Alondra Cano enters the race for Minneapolis City Council after years of experience as a City Hall aide. She was behind the City’s Office of Sustainability Environmental Justice Workgroup, as well as Minneapolis’ first Latino Engagement Task Force. She has seen first-hand how much an advocate can do to help the under-served communities of her city.

From her campaign website:

I am running for City Council because I believe that organizers and grassroots activists should have a voice and vote at the City’s decision-making table. For twelve years I have devoted my life to changing systems, institutions, and policies from the outside-in. After becoming a mother I decided I wanted to accelerate the type and level of impact I could make for social and economic justice.
