Action #8: Contact City Council

Contact Minneapolis City Council to demand that they defund the police. More specifically:

  • Do not increase police funding or the police department's budget; protect and expand current investment in community-led health and safety strategies instead.
  • Propose and vote for a $45 million cut from MPD's budget as the City responds to projected COVID-19 shortfalls. 
  • Pressure MPD and all law enforcement agencies to immediately cease enacting violence on community members, including those who are protesting.

 

These demands mirror those from Reclaim the Block and Black Visions Collective.

Go to the city council website and click on each name or click on each name below to go to each council member’s website for their contact info.
