Brooklyn Park passed a resolution supporting our Asian American and Pacific Islander community members. The resolution was passed during the April 12, 2021 City Council meeting. We will not tolerate, and we condemn, all forms of hate and violence against any person in our community. The City Council is committed to establishing and maintaining a culture of trust and open communication between residents, city officials and staff to strengthen our community partnerships.
