“Section One: Human Capital” is the first of five sections of  The Minnesota Equity Blueprint.  The first report reveals the challenges posed by demographic disparities,  along with dozens of practical solutions that will help realize our state’s full human potential.   Solutions are organized by topic headings:  Economic Security, Peaceful Communities, Educational Attainment, and Healthy People and Communities.

More than 30 specific options for community action or statewide policy changes are recommended.   Some of these are pending in the 2019 Legislature and the Thriving by Design Network earlier this year flagged Equity Blueprint 2019 legislative priorities for action.   Just as important, however, are the many ways individuals, businesses, non-profits, and community groups can act on their own to help improve the lives and productivity of all Minnesotans.
