My name is Sara Freeman and I’m running for MN House in District 61B. I talk openly about being a survivor of rape and gun violence, and living with post-traumatic-stress resulting from my attack. I hope my candor empowers other survivors, and helps to de-stigmatize conversations around sexual violence and mental health concerns.

I'm running because we need more survivors at the State Capitol, leading discussions about how violence impacts our communities and how systems meant to protect and defend victims, too often end up re-victimizing us instead. I'm running because we need more public school parents at the State Capitol – people with real "skin in the game", who can advocate for our students and their teachers at a time of unprecedented budget deficits. And I'm running because we deserve elected officials with a commitment to and track record of public service.

    “My aunt Shelley Joseph-Kordell was murdered in the courthouse shooting at the Hennepin County Government Center. The shooter bought a gun for $60 thru a private sale at a gun show with no background check required by MN law. Sara knows we can do better and is a survivor herself. I know she is the best person to lead on gun violence prevention and survivor support systems at the Minnesota Capitol.”
