Dean Jenkins Writes Op-Ed in MinnPost About the Path Forward to Justice in Wake of Tragic Killing of George Floyd

Garry W. Jenkins, Dean and William S. Pattee Professor of Law, co-authored a joint commentary in MinnPost with Humphrey School of Public Affairs Dean Laura L. Bloomberg on the path forward to achieving justice for all after the tragic killing of George Floyd. “Despite the current pain and anger, we firmly believe that the path forward will require citizens to learn from each other and from experts, to talk honestly and openly, to listen with open minds, and, ultimately, to reshape existing policies, practices, and perspectives,” writes Jenkins and Bloomberg. “Minnesotans must channel our outrage into action and insist on a world in which safety and human rights are not dependent on one’s race or ethnicity.”
