In north Minneapolis, funding should be problem-solving, not punitive

Anthony Newby from MN Neighborhoods Organizing for Change (NOC) with a powerful piece on Jamar Clark and investing in disinvested communities.

“We need a serious commitment from our elected officials to invest in real community safety: transformative justice with a focus on the mental health, employment and education needs of north Minneapolis. For real community safety, our tax dollars must prioritize our needs, not state-sponsored violence against our communities.”
