We’re approaching the final week leading up to a historic Seattle City Council vote to re-balance the 2020 budget and defund the Seattle Police Department. The final vote was just postponed one week until Monday, August 10.
Slashing SPD’s budget in half would be a victory that would give hope and confidence to the uprising for black lives across the country. Seven out of nice city councilmembers pledged to defund SPD by 50%. However, Mayor Durkan, the police, and capitalist media are pushing back hard. Decriminalize Seattle & King County Equity Now have organized an important rally to keep up the pressure on City Council.
Take to the Streets: Defund the Police March and Rally
Rally at the Youth Jail (12th & Alder) and march to City Hall while the city council is meeting.
