MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Activists for police reform in Duluth, Minnesota are calling on the city to make changes after an analysis of data showed that police use force on and arrest minorities at a disproportionate rate compared to white people.

Reports say half of the people involved in use-of-force incidents in 2019 were people of color, even though those groups made up 10% of the city's population, according to Duluth Police Department data.

The group calling for reform, LEAN Duluth, wants the police department to conduct a racial bias audit, freeze future budget increases and establish an office focused on preventing violence.
