Community conversations continue following Yanez verdict

Community organizations continue to step forward to host dialogues and gather community members in the wake of the trial of St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez. In addition to the previously scheduled event at the Wellstone Center tonight, the Wilder Foundation is announcing an additional gathering on Tuesday night. The community conversations have been facilitated and led by local nonprofit and community organizations in partnership with the City of Saint Paul.

“I am incredibly grateful for the facilitators, community leaders, organizations and participants that have stepped up to bring our city together during this difficult time,” said Mayor Chris Coleman. “Many members of our community came to Hallie Q. Brown and Saint Paul College this weekend to share in their grief, frustration and anger – and to also look toward the future together. I look forward to continued conversations this week.”
