This Tuesday, Sept. 8th, Council Members will return to work after a two-week recess. Before the break, Council voted to divest from policing and reinvest in community-led social services. On Aug. 21, Mayor Durkan vetoed the Black community and Black lives, blocking the divestments and reinvestments. Join us on Monday to let Council know that they must override the Mayor’s veto and pass laws and budgets that honor and protect Black lives!
The caravan will make its way to 7 locations in each of the City Council districts. Join us in person in your district (with a mask and socially distanced) to hear from speakers, welcome the caravan, participate in a phone bank, and do a social media action! Locations will be updated soon!
Can’t join us in person? No worries, we got you! There will be a live Zoom broadcast that you can tune into which will feature an online MC, speakers from different sectors of our Defund SPD movement, and live viewing of the caravan and rallies.
