People’s Budget LA

Just touching base here today in the hope of spreading the word about this People’s Budget. You can read it, get the toolkits and all that, and figure out how to support it here.

The People’s Budget LA is a coalition convened by Black Lives Matter-Los Angeles. The coalition includes community organizations, faith leaders, parents, teachers, students, nonprofit leaders, and individuals from across Los Angeles.

It’s a simple tangible demand to defund the police and fund social services and it can probably be adapted to just about any city in the US. And this needs to happen.

Because this sort of budget proposed by the mayor

is just fucked up. That sort of spending won’t solve crime, mediates all public relationships through a racist security apparatus, and dissolves all public trust. That sort of budget is, itself, police violence.
