Violence Prevention Steering Committee Vacancies


The Violence Prevention Steering Committee was created to provide expertise on violence prevention and to serve as a liaison between the Committee and other City-affiliated projects and/or programs. This committee will contain appointed representatives from multiple sectors (voting members) and representatives of other public safety strategies from within the City enterprise (nonvoting members). The membership shall reflect the ethnic and the cultural diversity of Minneapolis and be co-chaired by one community representative and one government representative. As much as possible, the seats will include members from at least five different wards, with preference given to representatives of those communities disproportionately impacted by violence, and the following sectors: financial/business, health care, research/academia, law enforcement, faith communities, non-profit and/or youth-serving community organizations, an agency focused on workforce development, community organizers, as well as representatives from the Mayor’s Office, the City Council, the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board, and the Minneapolis Board of Education.

Deadline: Applications will be accepted until November 27, 2019.
