Lisa Bender (born May 11, 1978) is an American Politician. She is a member of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party and currently handles the post of President of the Minneapolis City Council.
After the death of George Floyd people of America are now together opposing racial discrimination. They are protesting and in some places, this protest is taking a violent shape.
In all this Lisa Bender came with the idea of dismantling the police department in Minneapolis. It includes defunding police and substituting police with a new model of public safety.
Many other politicians are also getting vocal about this. Recently while giving an interview to a news channel she faced a very tough question which she failed to answer correctly.
