Meeting tonight on feds' MN anti-terror recruiting efforts
by Mukhtar Ibrahim
A Minneapolis neighborhood group has organized a community event scheduled for Monday evening about a controversial federal pilot program intended to prevent radicalization in Minnesota's Somali community.
The program, Countering Violent Extremism or CVE, was launched in 2014 by the U.S. Justice Department, and has since generated debate in Minnesota. Some Minnesota Muslims have questioned the pilot's intent and raised concerns that it's simply a way to gather intelligence on local Somalis.
The event will be held at 5 p.m. Monday at the Brian Coyle Center.
