In response to letters from us and allies including Communities United Against Police Brutality, Minnesota National Lawyers Guild, and CAIR MN, Hennepin County is making changes!
We will keep watching to make sure those changes in comport with the First Amendment.
Hennepin County is trying to prohibit people from generating noise, producing public art, holding posters or performing other forms of free speech in public spaces, including the People’s Plaza outside the government center.
These new restrictions do not accord with the First Amendment. That’s why we just sent a letter to county leaders, asking that they rescind this policy.
