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 increase the police department’s budget.
  • Propose and vote for a $45 million cut from the Minneapolis Police Department’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.
