Community Control of Police means All Power to the People!

  • Redeemer Lutheran Church ELCA - North Minneapolis 1800 Glenwood Ave Minneapolis, Minnesota 55405 (map)

The movement in Chicago is showing the whole country how to fight back against police tyranny. Minneapolis is just getting started. What can we learn from Chicago's experience? How do we ensure that MPAC (Minneapolis Police Accountability Council) isn't just another do-nothing City board to rubber stamp police abuse? Why are cops and politicians afraid of civilian control of the police that patrol our communities? What will it take for us to win?

Guest speaker, Frank Chapman is pictured above with Angela Davis. Chapman was a victim of wrongful imprisonment as a young man, and his release was won through political struggle led by Angela Davis and the National Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression. Politically active since then, he now leads the campaign to win an elected, all-civilian accountability council in Chicago.
