— MPD receives millions of dollars and free reign of the city, yet so many people across the city are still not safe. We can’t afford to keep doubling down on the same approach and expecting different results. It’s time to try something new.

We believe in the possibility of a safer city and a police-free future. This is the year to start moving our money into life-affirming institutions. MPD has a track record of murder, abuse, sexual assault, and dishonesty

We know that city hearings are often inaccessible - and that people who have the time and tech access to sit through long meetings are often the ones who get their voices heard. Black, Indigenous, and POC, submit your testimony to be heard!

Take this City of Minneapolis survey! It is "for members of the Minneapolis community to identify what safety looks like, and to provide ideas for how a new model can be accomplished.”
