We demand the following:
We demand the Minneapolis City Council pledge to be visionary leaders for Minneapolis and divest from the Minneapolis Police Department by committing to:
- Never again vote to increase police funding or to increase the police department’s budget.
- Propose and vote for a $45 million cut from MPD’s budget as the City responds to projected COVID-19 shortfalls.
- Protect and expand current investment in community-led health and safety strategies, instead of investing in police.
- Do everything in their power to compel MPD and all law enforcement agencies to immediately cease enacting violence on community members.
