Bemidji’s Project for Change co-president Alyson Allen says they have been calling for police accountability for far too long.
The Bemidji City Council has formed a work group for a police advisory committee, a topic that locally was re-ignited last summer after the Minneapolis death of George Floyd while in police custody.
Project for Change, according to their website, is a “non-partisan change group, formed on building awareness, and enriching the quality of life for historically marginalized…. communities through policy, accountability, and action.”
