CUAPB Minnesota started this petition

Jones Day is the fifth largest law firm in the US. They mostly represent large corporations but in the last election, they represented the Trump campaign in lawsuits trying to overturn the election results.

Jones Day has virtually taken over the government of the City of Minneapolis, working in the city attorney's office to defend the city against lawsuits by people hurt by police, while also processing complaints against the police in the Office of Police Conduct Review. They are negotiating the police federation contract for the city, while ensuring police get PTSD payouts. They are defending the city against the US Department of Justice and Minnesota Department of Human Rights investigations while supposedly making police reform recommendations. In other words, they are trying to stop the city from making progress on improving policing and ending police violence.

Initially, they were working for free for the city but have now secured contracts where they are being paid $500 or more an hour for work that should be done by the city attorney's office and other city staff for far less.

We don't need corporate hacks running our city and preventing us from holding the MPD accountable, all while grossly overcharging us. Tell Mayor Frey and the City Council: JONES DAY OUT OF MINNEAPOLIS NOW!
