St. Louis Park city leaders earlier this week discussed the controversy during a study session that drew a crowd of protesters.

The city council plans to listen to public comment on July 22 concerning their decision to not include the pledge before regular meetings.

A council member said earlier that they decided to not require the pledge to create a more welcoming environment for a diverse community.
