A conversation with advocates, artists, and organizers on the future of public safety in Minneapolis.
Minneapolis is asking itself big questions about the future of public safety. It’s clear that the current system of policing doesn’t serve our communities in equitable, constructive, or healing ways. What’s less clear is where we go from here. The answers will come not from a singular source, but through examining the layered histories, needs, and experiences that shape community expectations of public safety.
Join Pollen and Pillsbury United Communities on September 14 to hear from advocates, artists, and organizers who are asking the hard questions, finding answers from within, and imagining a better path forward. Together, we’ll explore community perspectives on policing, public safety, city budgets, and what we can do at the community level to turn imagination into action.
