What was once a movement—is now legislation—thanks to Minnesota Representative –Keith Ellison. We’ll have our friend RN Jean Ross from the state of Minnesota tell us why this is so important.

Check out this clip–we chose him because he has an accent and sounds like he knows what he is talking about—sort of.
