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:

  1. Never again vote to increase police funding or to increase the police department’s budget.
  2. Propose and vote for a $45 million cut from MPD’s budget as the City responds to projected COVID-19 shortfalls.
  3. Protect and expand current investment in community-led health and safety strategies, instead of investing in police.
  4. Do everything in their power to compel MPD and all law enforcement agencies to immediately cease enacting violence on community members.
