Earlier this week, the city announced that Yes 4 Minneapolis,  the campaign to establish a new Department of Public Safety, had officially received enough signatures to get on the ballot in November.

This is a huge moment. This means that nearly one year after the horrific murder of George Floyd, Minneapolis voters will have an opportunity to transform the system that allowed it to happen.

This is the result of months of organizing by a Black-led coalition that gathered over 20,000 thousand signatures.

Jewish Community Action is proud to be a part of this coalition, because we know that our safety is tied to the safety of our neighbors, and especially Black Minnesotans.

To learn more about how that is the case, we invite you join us for our upcoming training Remaining Unheard: Antiblackness, Antisemitism & Civil Unrest. We'll learn how antisemitism and antiblack racism have been used to discount or misrepresent civil rights movements.

Space is limited, so register up today.
