Rep. Noor

Neighbors,

Our community has been rocked in the last week; first by the senseless murder of George Floyd, then by the violence and destruction by a small, but dangerous few who mean to harm our neighborhoods. Most of those marching want justice and reform and to make Minneapolis and our state a better place to live, work and raise a family. Thank you for your efforts to keep our community safe. The work has already started as we rebuild a better future for everyone.

Curfew extended

On Saturday, we asked all of you to abide by the curfew and stay home last night. Today, Governor Walz extended the temporary nighttime curfew in Minneapolis and St. Paul beginning tonight at 8 p.m. through Monday, June 1 at 6 a.m. to protect the public peace, health, and safety and preserve the lives and property of the people of Minnesota.  You can read the details below:

  1. Nighttime Curfew. A curfew is imposed in all public places within the City of Minneapolis and the City of Saint Paul from 8:00 pm on Sunday, May 31, 2020 until 6:00 am on Monday, June 1, 2020.
  2. Travel Prohibited. During the curfew, all persons must not travel on any public street or in any public place.
  3. All law enforcement, fire, medical personnel, and members of the news media, as well as other personnel authorized by the City of Minneapolis, City of Saint Paul, Minnesota Department of Public Safety, Minnesota State Patrol, or Minnesota National Guard, are exempt from the curfew. Individuals traveling directly to and from work, seeking emergency care, fleeing dangerous circumstances, or experiencing homelessness are also exempt.
  4. a. For the purposes of this Executive Order, “travel” includes, without limitation, travel on foot, bicycle, skateboard, scooter, motorcycle, automobile, public transit, or any other mode of transporting a person from one location to another. b. For the purposes of this Executive Order, a “public place” is any place, whether on privately or publicly owned property, accessible to the general public, including but not limited to public streets and roads, alleys, highways, driveways, sidewalks, parks, vacant lots, and unsupervised property.
  5. I urge all Minnesotans to voluntarily comply with this Executive Order. Pursuant to Minnesota Statutes 2019, section 12.45, an individual who willfully violates this Executive Order is guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction must be punished by a fine not to exceed $1,000 or by imprisonment for not more than 90 days.

Letter to the Attorney General

On Friday, the Minneapolis Delegation of the Minnesota House of Representatives sent a letter to Gov. Tim Walz, asking that the prosecution into the murder of George Floyd be turned over to Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison. Moments ago, Gov. Walz announced that Attorney General Ellison will assist.

How to Help

Many people have asked me how they can immediately help our community to begin healing. The Star Tribune had a great article today about how to donate food, supplies and money.

COVID Safety Reminder

With all the intensity of the last few days, it may be easier to forget we are still in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. Cases continue to rise in Minnesota and if you are out in the community, please continue to wear a mask and keep your social distance. We don’t want another tragedy to amplify our already difficult situation. Thank you for continuing to keep each other safe.
