Tens of thousands of people protested for months, urging Mayor Durkan and the City Council to defund the Seattle Police Department by 50% and reinvest those funds in community-led health and safety services. As a result, 7 out of 9 council members pledged to defund the SPD by 50%. However, the council cut the 2020 SPD budget by only 3%.
As the City Council negotiates the new 2021 budget, the community must demand that the Council fulfills its promise to defund SPD by 50%. Join us for an online town hall meeting with District 1 City Councilmember Lisa Herbold. Come sign up to speak, or just come watch, and invite family and friends!
Hosted by: Seattle Democratic Socialists of America and DSA’s caucus of Afrosocialists and Socialists of Color
