About Betsy

I am a student of whiteness, a recovering alcoholic, and an advisor to clients about how to navigate whiteness and resistance in racial equity work. I was the 47th mayor of Minneapolis, Minnesota. In that job, especially in the crucible of officer-involved shootings, I put into practice first-hand everything I knew about race, white people, and policy change. In my life since leaving elected office, I use everything I have learned to create a framework that more effectively brings white people fully into the work of ending racism.
