MN DFL Statement on the passing of VP Walter Mondale

Walter Mondale on the left and President Joe Biden on the left. They're shaking hands and laughing.

The MN DFL Disability Caucus pays homage to Vice President Walter Mondale and sends our condolences and love to the Mondale family. Vice President Mondale will always be a Minnesota legend – as a wise, progressive and caring Minnesota Senator and President Jimmy Carter’s VP. As our Senator, he was the Chief Sponsor of the Fair Housing Act which helped many people with disabilities find secure housing without the fear of discrimination. We also sincerely appreciate that he devoted his political career to end childhood poverty and food insecurity – which affect people with disabilities at high rates. We are grateful for the equitable work of VP Mondale and join you in mourning his passing.
