DEFUND POLICE & PRISONS
On June 1st, 2020, the Police State budget proposed by Mayor Garcetti was passed by default. There is still action we can and must call for.
City council may still propose and vote for adjustments.
We want more services for unhoused Angelenos, including housing in the thousands of empty hotel rooms throughout the city; more mental health services; rent suspension and cancelation for the 55% of Angelenos who are currently unemployed; more funding for public schools and resources to ensure all students-- regardless of their situation-- can continue learning during these uncertain times" (People's Budget LA).
