Conservatives are blocking police accountability bills, and time is running out.
The Minnesota legislative session ends on Monday, May 17. That means our legislators have less than one week to pass meaningful laws that will hold police accountable and make our families safer.
Progressives in the legislature have put forward a public safety budget that does just that.
Progressives’ plan would prohibit police officers from altering body camera footage. It would prohibit police officers from joining white supremacist groups. And it would provide funding for community organizations working to prevent crime, among many other needed reforms.
Governor Tim Walz has also voiced support for progressives’ police accountability bills.
At this point, the only thing standing in the way of meaningful reform is Minnesota conservatives led by Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka.
We need your help to hold them accountable.
Lives are on the line and we can’t wait for another Minnesotan to die at the hands of law enforcement before our elected leaders take action.
Add your name to the growing list of Minnesotans who are demanding that conservatives pass police accountability bills before it’s too late.
