Communities United Against Police BrutalityTM is a Twin-Cities based organization that was created to deal with police brutality on an ongoing basis. We work on the day-to-day abuses as well as taking on the more extreme cases. Our overriding goal is to create a climate of resistance to abuse of authority by police organizations and to empower local people with a structure that can take on police brutality and actually bring it to an end. We provide support for survivors of police brutality and families of victims so they can reclaim their dignity and join the struggle to end police brutality.

PRESS CONFERENCE: Ending Police-Only Responses to
Mental Health Crisis Calls

Thursday, October 22 at 1:00 pm
Minneapolis City Hall Lobby
350 S 5th Street, Minneapolis

50% of the people killed by police are in a mental health crisis at the time they are killed. Clearly, cops are not the right responders to these calls.

We are demanding a different way forward, with mobile mental health crisis teams as primary responders. We're holding this press conference to release a landmark paper on ending police-only responses to mental health crisis calls.
