Black Vision Collective
Describe your image
Black Visions Collective aims to center our work in healing and transformative justice principles, intentionally develop our organization's core “DNA” to ensure sustainability, and develop Minnesota’s emerging Black leadership to lead powerful campaigns.
We envision a world in which ALL Black Lives Matter. We use the guidance and brilliance of our ancestors as well as our own experiences to pursue our commitment to dismantling systems of oppression and violence.
We aim to shift the discussion of police violence in Minneapolis from one of procedural reforms to meaningful structural change. We will achieve this by presenting a practical pathway for the dismantling of the MPD; the transference of its social service functions to community-based agencies; and the redirection of resources to support people-directed development.
Justice for Cariel Horne
Former Officer Cariel Horne was the type of officer we need in our streets, but she paid a costly price for it. After stopping her colleague from shocking David Neal Mack, a man already in handcuffs, she was fired from the police department and sequentially lost her pension. This gofundme is to support her and her family and show our appreciation for her courage and integrity.
Reclaim the Block
Reclaim the Block began in 2018 and organizes Minneapolis community and city council members to move money from the police department into other areas of the city’s budget that truly promote community health and safety. We believe health, safety and resiliency exist without police of any kind. We organize around policies that strengthen community-led safety initiatives and reduce reliance on police departments.

The Movement for Black Lives (M4BL) seeks to reach millions, mobilize hundreds of thousands, and organize tens of thousands, so that Black political power is a force able to influence national and local agendas in the direction of our shared Vision for Black Lives.
This fund honors George Perry Floyd Jr. and was established to support undergraduate students whose identities are underrepresented at the University of Minnesota, or undergraduate students whose studies focus on racial and social justice. During Mr. Floyd's memorial service, universities were called upon to create a scholarship in his honor that will support efforts to create a more just and equitable world.
