A little bit about Annastacia Belladonna-Carrera, Executive Director of Common Cause Minnesota:
Annastacia Belladonna-Carrera is the Executive Director for Common Cause Minnesota. Common Cause Minnesota serves as an independent voice for change and a watchdog against corruption and abuse of power. It fights to give all Minnesotans an equitable voice in local and state government, through a combination of successfully passed reforms, introduction of legislation and shaping the narrative around reform by engaging the media. Annastacia provides Common Cause MN leadership in identifying and developing equity-based strategic grassroots alliances to achieve collective democracy-based outcomes for Minnesotans.
Annastacia previously worked as Legislative Director for a Minnesota state agency; the Minnesota Council on Latino Affairs (MCLA). MCLA advises and informs the Governor’s Office, Legislative branch and community stakeholders on matters of importance to Latino Minnesotans. She was responsible for developing legislative strategy and mapping out action items for MCLA to infuse the Latino lens and voice into the policy making arena at all levels of government in Minnesota. Prior to joining the Minnesota Council on Latino Affair (MCLA), Annastacia held various leadership roles within local, state and federal government.
