The murder of George Floyd by the Minneapolis police has sent shockwaves through our country, and many of us are asking what we can do.
If we are truly invested in making sure this pattern of police brutality against Black people ends, we need to call on our elected officials to make changes.
We must demand that our politicians:
1. Decrease police department budgets.
2. Increase investment in education, healthcare, jobs, and housing for communities hardest hit by crime, police violence, and over-incarceration.
3. Increase funding for community-based solutions to crime and violence.
