On March 18th the Minneapolis Police Department tried to evict the Harrison/Near-North Encampment. Minneapolis residents would not allow that threat of violence and many neighbors and supporters came to their aid in solidarity.
Officers responded brutally and with excessive force to a community showing up to protect the unhoused: threatening, macing, punching, and violently kneeling directly on a Black man’s neck. MPD arrested 5 people, but were unable to evict the encampment because of the quick response from supporters.
Stand in solidarity with neighbors impacted by the housing crises. Below are pre-written messages for you to text or email your elected officials. Action end date is March 31st at 5pm
ACTION TEXT MESSAGE AND NUMBERS:
