As a reminder that this is no time to take your foot off the gas in the fight for racial justice, we want to tell you about the BREATHE Act, which is officially here to support Black lives:
“The BREATHE Act will divest our taxpayer dollars from brutal, discriminatory policing and invest in a new vision of public safety—a vision that allows all people to BREATHE FREE.”
The bill (according to the Action Network) would do the following:
- Defund the police and divest from incarceration
- Invest in new approaches to community safety
- Provide resources to build healthy, sustainable, equitable communities for all
- Enhance the self-determination of all Black communities
Super important steps, and ones we hope you’ll all work towards achieving by supporting this bill.
