Our Revolution National
"It's time for real criminal justice reform in Minneapolis. Raymond Dehn for Minneapolis championed police accountability as state representative, and as mayor he'll lead on de-militarizing police and training police in de-escalation. We're proud to endorse his campaign for Mayor."
Representative Karen Clark (MN-62A)
“Ray is one of our city’s most effective legislators at the Capitol. His energy and efficiency at the Capitol have been remarkable. Ray brings unique, neighborhood-based insight to governing which is something desperately needed in our city leadership. Ray genuinely represents the people in our city who have been left behind. That’s why I’m supporting Ray to be Mayor of Minneapolis.”
Representative Ilhan Omar (MN-60B)
“Ray searches for solutions to problems that aren’t yet apparent. His ability to foresee need is evident in his legislative record. A progressive leader of action, he is inviting and empowering a coalition of stakeholders generally forgotten in city elections. At the Capitol, Ray is known for ingenuity in problem solving; he will bring foresight and empathy to the Mayor’s office. Minneapolis needs a Mayor who identifies with the plight of everyday people, while understanding that change must be affected through both our governing and partnerships with communities.”

Jill Davis, former Minneapolis Board of Education Chair
"Ray knows the success of our students relies on their families to have stable housing, earn a living wage, and have access to the services they need, from transportation to and from work to recreational programming in our parks. We need a mayor that fights for students, schools and our communities. The three of us bring a diversity of perspectives and solutions for our schools, yet we agree Ray will be the best Mayor for education."
