Stanton helped organize a protest and was peacefully arrested by the city police. He went on to win an election to the Minnesota House of Representatives and then served for 30 years as the Director of Governmental Relations for the Inter Faculty organization. This segment was produced and edited by Pioneer’s Dylan Curfman while he was a student at SMSU.
