LEGISLATORS NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU!
>>PLEASE SHARE WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS<<
Our important bills to increase police accountability and address policing issues are very, very close to crossing the finish line! THIS IS CRUNCH TIME! CLICK HERE to send a message to the House/Senate conference committee.
THE OTHER SIDE IS MAKING NOISE that now is not the time for police accountability--even though nothing has changed that would stop another police killing from happening.
Our police accountability bills have been rolled into the House omnibus bill, HF 1078. However, the Senate omnibus bill, SF 970, does not contain any of our provisions. Because the bills differ, they are being heard in a House/Senate conference committee. It is IMPERATIVE the final omnibus bill include our provisions.
The House/Senate conference committee meets all this week. The members of that committee MUST HEAR FROM YOU.
CLICK HERE to tell the members of the conference committee to pass the House version HF 1078 with no changes.
Our bills included in House omnibus bill:
Governor Walz has assured us that he will sign the bill if it contains our provisions. See his press conference on our bills here.
PLEASE TAKE THIS ACTION RIGHT AWAY to ensure these essential changes becomes law.

Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all 3 counts! The first time an officer has been convicted for murdering an African American in Minnesota! This is a relief for our community; a sign of progress, but the work isn’t over. No unarmed citizen should EVER lose their life at the hands of Law Enforcement. May George Floyd Rest In Peace! I pray this verdict helps his family and friends heal.

Our hearts are absolutely broken. This should never EVER happen! The murder of Daunte Wright by former Brooklyn Center police officer, Kim Potter, has brought Minnesota, and the nation to yet another state of mourning. We express our condolences to the family of Daunte Wright, and to those who loved him.
We recognize the collective trauma this brings to the Heritage Park Community. To live in a world where racial aggression threatens your life, and the lives of those you know and love, is a violation of our most basic human needs for safety and belonging. May peace fall into the hearts of all who are grieving, exhausted and hurting right now.
We can all play a role standing in solidarity with the black community. That often means slowing down, making time to listen and taking action, no matter how small.
HPNA remains committed to working with and for our neighbors on promoting positive changes today and into the future. Together we can make a difference!
Support Daunte Wright’s family and show solidarity with anti-racism protestors
