Minneapolis NAACP boycotts Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

Jason Sole. NAACP Mpls president Onika Nicole Craven

The Minneapolis NAACP will be enforcing our demands upon the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board for the dereliction of their duty to address the many issues that we have repeatedly raised.

We will be shutting down the upcoming City Parks Alliance International Urban Park Conference: Greater and Greener. Additionally, effective today, the Minneapolis NAACP will be officially boycotting the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board.

This means we will not support, advocate for, patronize, or meet with the Board until issues are addressed. The Minneapolis NAACP has made 27 separate attempts to meet with the MPRB to seek ways to resolve these concerns, to no avail. We will not rest until justice is served, and we will pursue justice by any means necessary under the law.

Jason Sole,
President, Minneapolis NAACP
