More about DEFUND. RE-ENVISION. TRANSFORM.:
When we say “defund the police,” we mean the process of reallocating funds and responsibilities from the St. Louis police departments to community-based systems of safety, prevention, and de-escalation.
It is a demand to reduce the size, budgets, and power of all institutions that surveil, police, punish, incarcerate, and kill Black people to zero, and invest in building entirely new community infrastructures that will produce genuine safety and sustainability for our communities.
It is a demand to #DefendBlackLives by shutting off resources to institutions that harm us and redirecting them to meeting our communities’ needs and increasing our collective safety.
