On March 23, Knock First Minnesota and the Murphy Institute will co-host a CLE on no-knock warrants and their dangerous impact on our Minnesota community. The CLE will feature a panel of speakers, including Representative Athena Hollins '11, who offers a policy perspective on the changing laws surrounding no-knock warrants in Minnesota; Public Defender Shawn Webb, who offers a perspective on how no-knock warrants impact individuals in our community; and Father Daniel Griffith, who offers a Catholic perspective on how no-knock warrants impact the dignity of human life.

Knock First Minnesota is a non-partisan initiative created by the Community Justice Project at the University of St. Thomas School of Law. Established in the fall of 2020, the mission of Knock First Minnesota is to ban the use of no-knock warrants in Minnesota through comprehensive legislation. The vision of Knock First Minnesota is to give all Minnesotans an opportunity to answer the door.

1.0 CLE credit applied for.
