Local Activist Works To Replace Minneapolis Police Department
One Minneapolis activist calls George Floyd's death a global uprising.
Video of George Floyd's death fueled protests against racial injustice across the U.S. and the world.
One local activist calls it a global uprising. Antonio Williams finished serving a 14-year prison sentence about a month after Floyd's death.
And he got to work as soon as he got out, building community support for an initiative to replace the Minneapolis Police Department with a new department of public safety.
Williams said, "We're just one arm, one arm, you know, that is out here trying to create change and get away from a system that is clearly not working in our best interest."
