Daunte Wright was murdered by police in Brooklyn Center, MN on Sunday April 11th… during the week Minnesota struggles with the devastation and anxiety of the Derek Chauvin trial– the MNPD officer who murdered George Floyd just 11 months ago. Like George Floyd, Daunte was a father, a son, a loved member of his family, and a life that mattered.
This racism, violence, and injustice cannot continue, not only in the Twin Cities but across our nation. To make the necessary action easy and accessible for fellow non-black folcks, I’ve compiled a list of resources from various individuals and organizations leading the fight towards justice and liberation for Black communities everywhere. This is not an exhaustive list, but is what I’ve been able to collect online. Please reach out if you have further information, education, or corrections!

JUSTICE FOR GEORGE FLOYD
The Twin Cities, yet again, are under national observation. We must demand a precedent be set, and continue the fight towards Justice for George Floyd. Support his memorial and demand a fair trail against Derek Chauvin.
