Tell your governor: Invest in communities, not policing!

None of us should ever fear violence in our communities, especially from those supposedly charged with promoting public safety. George Floyd, Eric Garner, Philando Castile, Sandra Bland, and countless other Black and brown people have died at the hands of police—and a racist system that disproportionately targets people of color for police brutality, imprisonment, and death. 

It’s past time to do something different. AFSC supports the Movement for Black Lives, which has called for divestment from the police and investment in Black communities. Please join us in calling on governors in every state to defund policing and invest instead in critical needs such as schools, health care, and transformative justice initiatives that truly center community well-being.

Tell your governor: Invest in communities, not policing!
