Minneapolis, MN – May 25 marks the one-year anniversary of the murder of George Floyd, by former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin. Floyd’s death – captured on video that showed Chauvin’s knee on Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes – sparked a global uprising in defense of Black lives and against police brutality. But amid the coverage of protests in the wake of Floyd’s death, media attention rarely focused on the ways communities impacted by police violence were organizing to keep each other safe, in Minneapolis and beyond.
Reimagining a Better World is a special report, from Yes! Media and Public News Service, that looks at two emerging strategies that communities are using to help redefine public safety.
