On Monday, January 11, 2021, 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, the Community Relations Service (CRS) will host a virtual facilitated dialogue session between the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) and various community members. The purpose of the dialogue is to provide an opportunity for MPD, diverse community leaders, residents, and youth to voice concerns, identify issues, and suggest ways to improve police-community relations in Minneapolis. Space is limited, sign up now.
As of today, I pledge to act and speak with kindness. I will work diligently and consistently to be the best version of myself, striving to help others discover the full potential in themselves because I am The Inner Hero.
The goal of these discussions is to provide a forum for community members and local police officials to address the challenges and solutions in building positive relations. The Inner Hero organization serves as the bridge to foster these discussions. So far, we’ve hosted community discussions with residents and Minnesota Chiefs of Police in Minneapolis, Brooklyn Park, Brooklyn Center, Robbinsdale, Crystal and New Hope Minnesota. In 2020, we expect to foster the development of discussions in additional communities and police departments in the Twin Cities.
Create spaces and programs for youth that reduce violence, build trust, and encourage education that empowers youth to be productive citizens.
Safe communities for everyone where youth reach their full potential.
May 2020: We’ve updated our Mission and Vision statements and we are excited that it clearly aligns with our focus on Education, Community Engagement, and Mentorship.

We are Bringing Smiles to our Community Heroes.
As a father, I am brokenhearted and crushed. As a member of the community, my emotions are raging. As an activist for a safer and more productive society, strengthening community-police relations, I am devastated by the death of George Floyd.
When police officers’ actions coincide with the death of a community member, it leaves a lot of strain on the police-community relationship, derailing trust and undermining the legitimacy of the service.
At this point, I will ask the community members to remain calm and direct their energy to prayer for the comfort and solace of the bereaved family.
Meanwhile, The Inner Hero organization, as part of and for the community, will reach out to the requisite authorities to ensure transparency and subsequently when the facts that are revealed show the officer(s) are negligent, justice.

“I’m very proud that the Minneapolis Police Department is a proud member along with The Inner Hero because Inner Hero’s work is transformational.”
– Chief of Minneapolis Police Medaria Arredondo
Working Together For The Change We Love To See!! The Inner Hero Organization is a proud partner of Minneapolis police Chief Medaria Arradondo, and we are in support of his actions taken so far. We will continue our working relationship with him as we work together to restructure the police department, to heal and build our community relations.
“As a leader, if you want to be successful you got to listen to people.
When you speak less, but you speak profoundly, and you listen more. Because when people find out you can listen to them, they follow you better. Meaning the idea you have is not just yours, but theirs, it’s inclusive.”
– Ambrose R. Russell
Despite all of our differences within our homes, schools, communities, cities, states, and our nation, we at The Inner Hero Organization believe that love is the key in changing others’ unique lives. As you watch this video, please find The Inner Hero within you for us as a community to love again.
Many youth who are struggling academically and socially are attending school, but not learning. We focus on identifying and cultivating their academic interests and passions as well as guiding them to explore and identify career interests and options.
We believe that strong character is the foundation of a successful future. We work with youth to guide them both to succeed academically and also to develop values such as respect, perseverance, and excellence. We help them develop the social and emotional skills necessary to form and develop good relationships and build a strong foundation for their future.
We provide mentorship and positive role models to inspire youth to strive for educational success, set and work toward future career goals and develop strong character. By connecting youth not only with caring adults but also with peers who understand their experiences, we show students that they can overcome obstacles and achieve their dreams.
