The LAPD receives $1.7 billion of state funding every year amounting to 54% of the entire budget that could help save lives, reduce the homeless crisis and end police brutality that led to George Floyd’s death.

A group taking action is Critical Resistance, seeking to end the Prison Industrial Complex by challenging the belief that caging and controlling people makes us safe. To find out more go to criticalresistance.org 

Keep these protests peaceful. Keep wearing masks. Keep moving forwards to change the system.
