Defund Police. Invest in Communities.
George Floyd was murdered by a Minneapolis police officer after being knelt on for nearly 8 minutes. The police officers who murdered him are not in jail.
In the wake of righteous rage spreading across New York and the United States, we must demand divestment from law enforcement and investment in our communities: housing, care, social services, and public education.
Breonna Taylor was an award-winning EMT and model citizen. Months ago, a division of the Louisville Police Department performed an illegal, unannounced drug raid on her home. Not a single officer announced themselves before ramming down her door and firing 22 shots, shooting Breonna 8 times, killing her.
