Worldwide protests erupted after George Floyd was murdered by a police officer a year ago. In Mountain View, citizens commented until the early morning hours calling for city council to defund the police. In response, a planned increase of the police budget was scrapped. Additionally, city council created the Public Safety Advisory Board (PSAB) to advise city council on matters of public safety. Continued engagement with PSAB is our best avenue to reimagine public safety and push for reallocation of city funds from police towards services that nourish our communities. The first PSAB meeting occurs Thursday, May 27 at 7 pm.
The Mountain View Caucus of Silicon Valley DSA will be meeting before the PSAB meeting to discuss the situation of policing in Mountain View and how we can best advocate to reduce the funding and power of the police. Register for the DSA zoom at 6 here and the PSAB meeting here.
