Expanding Public Safety in Minneapolis

This November, voting #YesOn2 will make Minneapolis safer by bringing safety and health resources under one roof.

A year ago Minneapolis residents sparked a national movement to address police violence, safety, and accountability. This November, voters have the chance to amend the Minneapolis city charter and adopt a public health approach to safety that works for us all. 

A better approach that leads to a safer and more just city is possible. By voting Yes on 2, we can establish a new Department of Public Safety that includes mental health experts, police, social workers, and more. Expanding access to trained professionals will ensure that each emergency is met with the proper care and compassion that our community deserves. 

This November, vote for a more expansive approach to public safety—one that responds quickly when we call for help, intervenes with appropriate first responders to de-escalate situations, and above all, prioritizes our safety. Together, let’s put our safety and our community first. Vote Yes On 2.
