The Movement for Black Lives: ‘Divest From Police & Invest in Black Communities!’

The Movement for Black Lives

Despite continued profiling, harassment, terror and killing of Black communities, legislature, City Council, and mayors continue to invest in Police departments across the country, increasing their budgets, leaving Black communities vulnerable and our communities no safer.

It is critical for every Police Department across this country to acknowledge the harm their institution has caused Black families, to make an official apology, in turn the city needs to commit to divest funds from the police and invest in community safety measures.

The safest communities don’t have the most cops; they have the most resources.

We need community-led solutions to safety, such as mental health resources, solutions to the opioid epidemic, affordable housing, and public health approaches to violence prevention.
