Over 1,127 people were killed by police in 2020 and those killed are disproportionately BIPOC community members. After the murder of George Floyd, LeadMN urged Minnesota higher education institutions to reform how police officers are trained in Minnesota. 

The Police Education Taskforce has been operating in secret since the fall of 2020 and will be releasing its recommendations for “reform” next month. LeadMN wants to make sure that those impacted by police violence and students have an opportunity to share their opinion on the recommendations before they are adopted.
