Peggy Flanagan is a mom, an advocate, a member of the White Earth Band of Ojibwe, and Minnesota’s 50th lieutenant governor. Her career is built on standing up for children, working families, communities of color and Indigenous communities, and Minnesotans who have historically been underserved and underrepresented.

As a former state representative, school board member, nonprofit leader, and community advocate, she now brings her experiences of building coalitions and advocating for children and families to the Lieutenant Governor’s Office as she works in partnership with Gov. Tim Walz to build One Minnesota.

Lt. Gov. Flanagan will be in conversation with MinnPost reporter Walker Orenstein on Thursday, April 28, at 11:30 a.m. CT.
