I live within walking distance of Minneapolis Police Precinct.

I have been onsite peacefully protesting everyday this week. I have been shot at with rubber bullets, tear gassed, hit with percussion bombs and watched people hit with “soft” bullets (see below). I’ve seen the police advance on citizens using violence and intimidation.

Experienced nurses that are able to deal with COVID, we're a finite resource and we're not to be taken lightly...This whole concept of any nurse being disciplined for merely fighting for the safety of their patients and themselves is unacceptable. - Mary Turner, President, MN Nurses Association

Nurses from Bemidji, Bagley and Thief River Falls joined forces (with safe social distancing of course) to express concern about working conditions yesterday. 

Molly posted the following on Facebook:  So I sit in a spot where I am the person who is directly affected by these decisions, these school district guidelines. A mom of a senior – and not just a senior, my first born. No graduation ceremony? Are you kidding? NO, not my kid – he deserves what everyone else deserves. This is a huge rite of passage. 13 years of school, 13 years of activities, 13 years of hard work, dedication and growth. The only 13 years a child has to be a child – they’ve done it. They are there. This celebration/rite of passage cannot be taken away.
