City passes resolution opposing national registry, surveillance
The City passed a resolution opposing the creation of a national registry or surveillance based on ethnicity, national origin or religious affiliation. The resolution affirms the City’s commitment to honoring all people. It reads:
“We intend that our city be a welcoming and safe place for people of all ethnicities, national origins, immigration status, gender and sexual identities, religious or non-religious affiliations, ages, economic status and abilities.”
The affirmation follows other recent City resolutions taking a stand against hate and bigotry. The Standing with all Members of our One Minneapolis resolution expresses solidarity with all people in Minneapolis regardless of race, gender identity, religion, birthplace or any other identity. The Solidarity with the Muslim Community resolution condemns all hateful speech and violent action targeted toward Muslims and political tactics that use fear to gain power.
