Why We Need to Change the Minneapolis Charter

No matter the color of our skin or where we come from, all of us deserve to live in a community where we feel safe and where our lives are valued.

Through our grief and pain over the murder of George Floyd, we are united by our resolve to defend Black lives. As groups like Black Visions, Reclaim the Block, and MPD150 have long stated, the crisis at MPD is decades in the making. We have the moral responsibility and civic duty to act together. We have the power to build a city that is anti-racist and safe for everyone.

TakeAction Minnesota Update: Justice for George Floyd

Today, George Floyd’s memorial was held in Minneapolis. The pain, rage, and grief across the Twin Cities is palpable. At the same time, our trauma is being transformed into the creation of something beautiful.

TakeAction Minnesota continues to follow the leadership of Black-led organizations and Black leaders across our multi-racial base. We are also operating through our lens as a multi-racial, statewide organization, lifting up the wisdom of members most directly impacted by injustice and violence inflicted by police and white nationalists.
