Defund the Fremont Police: City Council Votes
June 9 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Short URL: https://siliconvalleydsa.org/?p=5542
The police are brutalizing our communities with the funding they get from our tax dollars.
In Fremont, the city council votes on the budget this Tuesday. It gives 44% of our general fund to the cops, AND increase the police budget by $4.8 million while the total sources of city revenue decrease by 4%. We could be doing amazing things like building permanently affordable public housing with that money.
Call in to tell the city council to vote NO on the budget as is and to instead DELAY the budget so adequate time can be spent allocating funds in a sensical manner.
