Hodan Hassan has overcome significant barriers in her life and career. She immigrated to United States from Somalia more than 20 years ago, and first made 62A her home in 1999. She was a union member and county worker with AFSCME Council 34, and she has lobbied the state legislature on behalf of Minnesota nonprofits to increase equity funding for the diverse communities of 62A. Hassan earned her master’s degree from Augsburg University in Minneapolis, and currently works as a mental health clinician. Her experiences as a senior clinical social worker for Hennepin County have prompted her desire to help expand access to mental health services and affordable housing, for residents in 62A and throughout the state.
