About Yes 4 Minneapolis

A Community-Led Movement to Create a Department of Public Safety in Minneapolis

It all started in Minneapolis. Following the murder of George Floyd last summer, we witnessed a community movement against state-sanctioned violence — a movement to better protect Black lives and have true safety in the city of Minneapolis.

We marched. We organized. We listened. And, most importantly, we learned that Minneapolis residents agree that our current police-only approach to public safety is broken. Yes 4 Minneapolis (Y4M) is a unifying campaign bringing together voters, families, faith leaders, labor unions, small businesses, mental health professionals, teachers and more because we have an opportunity to create a system that works for all of us.

Now change is on the ballot.

Together, we must amend the city charter that was written in 1961 by the Police Federation, forcing us to build on a broken system of violent, armed police-only response. Our movement demands our city leaders move toward a comprehensive, higher standard in public safety, where qualified professionals, like mental health responders and social workers, as well as police, can work to make all our communities safer. We can align our city’s safety infrastructure with our values.

We marched. We organized. And now we get to vote.
