On February 18, Voices for Racial Justice (VRJ) held a rally at Christ Lutheran Church on Capitol Hill, 105 University Avenue, St. Paul. The event was a collaboration of community leaders and organizations to give a voice and bring attention to racial equity in the state of Minnesota. The 2013-14 Legislative Report Card and the 2015 Racial Equity Agenda were also released that day.
Vina Kay is the executive director of VRJ, located in Minneapolis on Franklin Avenue.
University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler announced Wednesday that use of racial descriptions will be reduced considerably in U police crime alerts.
