A public safety hearing–with no public testimony–is now on the state Senate Calendar for next Monday (9am). Local religious leaders are among those who have been calling for more police accountability measures…

“This is really for all Minnesotans across the state, who just like many of the clergy are going to be gathering are really really ready and urgently calling on all our legislators to step up and take real action on police accountability.”

Minister JaNaé Bates says after the murder of George Floyd, the killing of Daunte Wright and the many more Black lives ended by police forces, she and others are demanding that lawmakers follow through on protecting all residents and creating safe communities for every Minnesotan.
