Community, faith, environmental organizations and legislators to urge Minneapolis Residents to Strengthen Minneapolis’ Democracy – Vote NO, YES, YES on Ballot Initiatives
(Minneapolis, MN) – On Wednesday, September 22 at 11 a.m., community, faith, and environmental organizations and legislators will gather for a press conference at the Minneapolis Early Voting Center to celebrate our multiracial democracy and show how Minneapolis residents are coming together across race, income, and zip code to vote NO, YES, YES on the proposed charter amendments this election to strengthen our democracy and create a city that’s safe for all of us.
Despite months of attempts by Mayor Jacob Frey’s backers to silence the voice of the people on the Yes 4 Minneapolis public safety amendment, residents of all walks of life are coming together this election season to demand that our local democracy works for the people. Speakers will discuss the three ballot measures up for a vote this November- one brought forward by an unelected charter commission and supported by opponents of the public safety charter amendment, and two brought forward by 22,000 Minneapolis residents and local elected officials. Community leaders will speak to the power of our multiracial, vibrant democracy and will urge Minneapolis residents to vote NO on mayoral control and YES on public safety and rent stabilization amendments.
