The movement for Black lives forced 7 out of 9 Seattle city councilmembers to declare they support defunding the SPD by 50%.  This is a big victory!  However, some Democratic politicians, attempting to appease Seattle’s ruling class, are trying to wiggle out of implementing what the movement for Black lives is fully demanding.  People of color are invited to join us at our weekly meeting every Monday at 6 pm to discuss this struggle and the steps that our Afrosocialists and Socialists of Color (AFROSOC) caucus as well as DSA can take to pressure the mayor and city council to implement the movement’s demands.

Folks of color, please bring your thoughts & proposals, and mark your calendar! Find the Zoom link on Slack in the poc_c channel or email [email protected] and provide your full name.
