  • Black Pearl LLC 1011 W. Broadway Ave. Suite 105 Minneapolis, Minnesota 55411 (map)

Are the equipment violation stops in Minneapolis discriminatory?

Over the last 12 months, there have been over 7,000 stops for equipment violations. Of these stops, 55% of the individuals were Black or East African, even though they only make up 18% of the population. Conversely, while Whites make up 60% of the population in Minneapolis, they were 30% of the individuals stopped for equipment violations. 

Please join us for a panel discussion with key community leaders about the impacts of over policing including excessive police stops for equipment violations. *Panel members will be announced early January.
