Memorandum of Agreement
In 2003 we entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) as the US Department of Justice recognized community leaders. Many of these reforms were adopted, many were not as the MOA expired and political will waned. In 2021 we released an updated set of recommendations. This updated MOA is currently before the Minneapolis City Attorney.
We ask the city of Minneapolis to fast track this review and re-open the MOA from 2003, as well as adopt the revisions that were created in consultation with a diverse group of community leaders and behavioral health experts, including the young people who have the most to gain and the most to lose.
