WCNO Statement on the murder of George Floyd

June 5, 2029

Statement from the Webber-Camden Neighborhood Organization regarding the events surrounding the murder of George Floyd:

The WCNO is horrified by the murder of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis Police Department. This tragedy is the result of a continued pattern of racist and brutal policing in the City of Minneapolis which has led to attacks on other innocent residents and the news media. The WCNO condemns these actions.

The WCNO stands in solidarity with the BIPOC community and its allies and hereby formally severs all outreach, engagement and other community activities with the MPD pending meaningful reform and the resignation of Bob Kroll, the President of the Minneapolis Police Officers Federation. In return, the WCNO commits to supporting the reimagining of a system of accountability that will support Minneapolis residents without undue fear and violence.

Sincerely,
The Webber Camden Neighborhood Organization Board
