Board of Supervisors: Defund SFPD, significantly.

The family of Luis Góngora Pat with Justice4Luis joins the call to #DefundThePolice, significantly. Mayor London Breed’s response to this public demand falls disappointingly short by maintaining a bloated police budget, which represents an insignificant -2.6% decrease from last year’s 2019-2020 budget. We oppose any cosmetic defunding of the police that will only result in the perpetuation of police violence and criminalization of Black, Indigenous, People of Color, transgendered, and homeless peoples in this City. We demand significant law enforcement funds be redirected to invest in the well being of BIPOC communities and alternatives to policing.

Junta de Supervisores: Recorten a la policía de manera significativa.

La familia de Luis Góngora Pat con Justice4Luis.org se suma al llamado para #RecortarALaPolicía, de manera significativa. La respuesta de la alcalde London Breed a esta demanda pública se queda decepcionantemente corta al mantener un presupuesto policial inflado, que representa una disminución insignificante del -2,6% con respecto al presupuesto del año pasado para 2019-2020. Nos oponemos a cualquier recorte presupuestal cosmético a la policía que solo resultará en la perpetuación de la violencia policial y la criminalización de las personas negras, indígenas, otras personas de color, transgénero y sin hogar en esta ciudad. Exigimos que se redirijan fondos significativos de las fuerzas del orden para invertir en el bienestar de las comunidades más discriminadas de esta ciudad y en alternativas a la vigilancia policial.
