MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The death of George Floyd has renewed efforts to change systemic racism, an issue that resonates with every minority group in Minnesota.

Terri Thao, of Nexus Community partners, explained why Asian-Americans have, in the past, been less overtly aggressive in that fight.
She has spent decades addressing racial inequality, studying disparities in health, poverty, and income.
Today, she finds each issue at unsustainable levels for minority communities.
