Students discuss gun violence at University panel

While Minnesota lawmakers staged a 24-hour sit-in at the State Capitol to protest gun policy inaction, University student group Students for Ilhan Omar hosted their own event to provide students a platform to share their ideas on gun violence. 

Bills introduced at Capitol could protect students from predatory landlords

Rep. Ilhan Omar, DFL-Minneapolis, and Sen. Kari Dziedzic, DFL-Minneapolis, have introduced bills in their respective chambers that would require landlords to make leases more transparent. Members of the University of Minnesota’s Minnesota Student Association worked with Omar and Dziedzic to draft the measures.
