As we work to improve community safety in Minneapolis, three principles guide our community engagement plans:
We will create engagement opportunities that are varied and designed to meet people where they are.
The community should feel that:
- The dialogue is meaningful and relevant.
- Their involvement informs actions.
- Their contributions are reflected in recommendations for new systems of public safety.
Our engagement opportunities will reach the full and rich diversity of our City. We will center the voices of people who have been historically marginalized or underserved by our present system. These include Black people, American Indian people, people of color, immigrants and victims of harm.
