Activists keep police reform push despite Minneapolis loss
Election 2021 Minneapolis Policing Rishi Khanna, 31, stands for a portrait after voting in Minneapolis, Tuesday, Nov. 2, 2021 to replace the city's police department with a new Department of Public Safety. “I couldn’t imagine a ballot measure like this even being on the ballot three years ago,” he said. With the failure of police reform in Congress, he said, change will likely happen on the local level, city by city. Gross recalled that activists pushed a slate of nine bills in the 2021 legislative session, and only one made it into law. Civil rights attorney Nekima Levy Armstrong, who also opposed the ballot measure, said the people who pushed for the amendment need to stay involved for the long haul.wftv.com
