Call to Call: Tell Minneapolis officials to cancel their plan to violently destroy Near North camp


Tell the City of Minneapolis to disavow government violence as a response to poverty

Sample call script: I am calling on you to cancel Tuesday's plan to displace people from Near North camp. I support the demands of camp residents:

  • No forced removal or destruction.
  • All decisions about Near North camp happen with residents' consent.
  • No use of police or other public resources to displace people ever.
  • Permanent or at least transitional housing, or even alternative vacant land, provided before leaving this camp.

Defend Near North Camp from "Closure" Threats


Public Pressure Campaign, Week of 3/15

Tell the Minneapolis Office of Community Planning and Economic Development to leave Near North camp in peace


Minneapolis has used a tangle of state, county, and city agencies to deny responsibility for the housing crisis while exercising impressive coordination in brutal displacement of houseless people.  The latest on deck in this despicable game with deadly consequences is the Office of Community Planning and Economic Development— which definitely has the power and authority to solve houselessness, not push it aside, if we can undo its capture by rich real estate speculators.
