Petition for CoBM's Legislative Recommendations

Sign & Share!

In Minnesota, the human stories maybe singular but our destiny is shared - we rise or fall as one state - as one people, and the power of human unity must prevail.


The mission of the Council on Black Minnesotans (CoBM) is to ensure the needs of all Minnesotans of African descent are heard, addressed, and acted upon. Over the past 3 years, the Council has visited communities all across our state to listen to concerns and to collaborate with community members to develop solutions that will make a significant impact on the quality of life of Black Minnesotans.

Our Legislative Agenda, developed by community input and participation, is now ready to be brought before the Legislature. We need your help once again to make sure our solutions are heard. Sign this petition and share it with your friends, family, and allies across the state!

    I support COBM and all of the movement that is being built around our state. I also advocate for the change that is taking place with the council. I support the narrative that the council is putting forth to change the way society views black people. We are human beings, and we are free, we have access to other human beings and we get our greatest education through that education (Edward McDonald)
