WILD Conversation: What's a Consent Decree and How Will it Impact Public Safety Reform? | July 7, 8:30-10:00 am

Following its two-year investigation, the Minnesota Department of Human Rights (MDHR) released its findings in April 2022 that announced the City of Minneapolis and the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) engage in a pattern or practice of race discrimination in violation of the Minnesota Human Rights Act. MDHR will work alongside the City to develop a consent decree, a court-enforced, legally binding agreement, to ensure reforms within the MPD. Join WILD to learn more about the findings of the MDHR report, the consent decree process, and the potential impact on public safety reform. Panelists include Irina Vaynerman (Deputy Commissioner Department of Human Rights), Justin Terrell (Executive Director, Minnesota Justice Research Center), and Rachel Moran (Professor, University of St. Thomas School of Law), and moderated by Lucas Kaster (Attorney, Nichols Kaster).
