Native America Calling
June 19 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
A majority of the Minneapolis city council pledge to dismantle that city’s police department. It’s an idea that’s gaining momentum after George Floyd died when a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck. Does dismantling the police mean there’s no one to respond to 911 calls? Proponents say it diverts public money to social services like mental health workers or homelessness experts instead of relying mainly on armed officers. Native Americans are among the populations disproportionately injured and killed by police. Could a new approach save Native lives? We’ll check in with a variety of opinions.
