21 Days of Peace

Greetings brothers and sisters, 


I pray all is well. Please see the most updated schedule for volunteer opportunities in South Minneapolis.   Please refer to the sign up sheet to stay updated on locations and times to volunteer.  The schedule will be updated weekly for volunteer opportunities.  Blessings to you and let me know if you have any questions.

Mobilization Plan
Purpose: To provide guidance for the activation, mobilization, and deployment in support of our efforts to reduce the violence in Minneapolis.

What is success? 
Our allies will become part of the solution to the violence in all phases and embrace our approach of stability, opportunity and prosperity as the approach to making us all safe. We believe that when it is not safe in north Minneapolis, it’s not safe anywhere.
What do we need them to do? Our initial phase is intended to stabilize the community by occupying identified hot spots and denying the drug trade to operate open air markets which lead to violence and harm to innocent victims. We need allies to:

Stand with us in solidarity. The epic journey of African Americans in this country is one that has enlisted the support of allies from abolitionists to freedom riders. Today, the same is required as we fight poverty and the residual issues of crime and violence.  The community-building aspect of this initiative is the most important element. The people living in these are being held hostage by the criminal element. They need support so that they can take back their neighborhoods.

This goes beyond apprehending and imprisoning criminals. We must acknowledge the root cause of economic apartheid and a poor educational system that breed the drug trade as an economy, the dependence on charity and government, and the despair and
hopelessness that grips the community. We must embrace stability, opportunity, and prosperity for all.

Direct Support Plan:

MPD is now hiring community service officers.  This is one important pathway to becoming a Minneapolis Police Officer and provides an opportunity to serve in our City while gaining education and experience.  The City pays for tuition and books at an approved rate for employees hired in the CSO program.  Details about the pathways to be hired in the MPD are here:  https://www.minneapolismn.gov/government/jobs/police-jobs/job-types/ 

 

The full community service officer job posting and application can be found on the City website here:   https://www.minneapolismn.gov/government/jobs/job-openings/apply-for-a-job/  Please share this information as widely as possible through your own networks.  As always, you are one of the most important resources we have to recruit good people to the MPD!

 

The Minneapolis Police Department is looking for Community Service Officer candidates - people who have a strong sense and commitment for public service, outstanding character, sound judgment, excellent work ethic, effective oral and written communication skills, interpersonal tact, empathy, and compassion. A Community Service Officer (CSO) works approximately 20-30 hours per week in the Minneapolis Police Department for up to three years while enrolled as a student in an approved, two-year law enforcement program and/or working toward completion of Minnesota Peace Officers Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.) licensing requirements. CSO’s assist the police department and community by promoting intercommunication, understanding, and cooperation between the Police Department and the diverse communities of Minneapolis. The CSO is a civilian position which has the possibility of promotion to a full-time Police Officer position.

·        Must have a high school diploma or equivalent. 

·        Must provide a college transcript and/or documented proof of enrollment or acceptance to a law enforcement program at a regionally accredited college/university by December 27, 2021.

Board requirements and department testing to be eligible to promote to the position of Police Officer (Recruit). Failure to do so will result in release from employment with the Minneapolis Police Department. Also, the MPD will assess CSO promotion suitability after completion of academic training, based on, but not limited to, field performance, assignment rotations, and supervisor recommendation.

·        Must continue employment with the Minneapolis Police Department for a period of three years following hire as a Police Officer or pay back the cost of tuition paid by the department.

NorthPoint Continues Vaccinating North Minneapolis

Street Construction Continues at NorthPoint


NorthPoint's campus will continue to be impacted by Hennepin County and the City of Minneapolis street construction at the intersection of Penn & Plymouth through July. Access to the clinic parking lot will continue, and additional parking will be available in the 1256 Penn parking ramp. The ramp entrance is at Plymouth & Oliver. Walkways to enter NorthPoint will remain accessible during construction, and Metro Transit lines using Penn & Plymouth Avenue will relocate to nearby streets.

Please allow yourself extra time to get to the clinic. For everyone's safety, we ask that you obey all posted speed limits and follow the signs to get to the clinic or parking ramps.

For more information about the Plymouth Ave reconstruction project, please visit the City of Minneapolis website. For information about the Penn Ave reconstruction project, visit the Hennepin County website.
You Can Help Hunger Take a Vacation

For many kids, summer vacation is a reward after a year of hard work in the classroom. However, the summer months can be difficult for families that rely on free and reduced-price school meals. When school is out, these kids no longer have access to school meals and their families' budgets are often stretched to the breaking point.

You can make a difference this year by donating throughout the month of July. NorthPoint Health & Wellness Center has joined the Open Your Heart Challenge. The more you give, the larger NorthPoint's grant from Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless will be. The challenge funds will proportionally match your donation. Your financial donation will go further due to our buying power. We can purchase food from our food bank for pennies on the pound.
