DefundOPD, Invest in Community

There are THREE THINGS that YOU can do to signal to City Council that the Oakland Police Department’s budget is UNACCEPTABLE:

  1. Submit public comment to the council in anticipation of Monday’s meeting. You don’t have to attend the meeting in person to make sure your voice is heard!! If you visit http://speakupoakland.org/meetings/2700-special-concurrent-meeting-of-the-oakland-redevelopment-successor-agency-slash-city-council-on-2017-06-26-5-30-pm/agenda_items and fill out the requested fields for the 6/26 City Council meeting (Item 13), you will stand with the mass of folks who have been pushing the council to #DefundOPD and #InvestInCommunity

  2. Stay tuned! Oakland is able to pass budgets that do not serve the people because its councilmembers say one thing and do another. Let them know that we are watching! We are encouraging Oakland residents to watch the budget meeting online at http://www2.oaklandnet.com/government/o/CityClerk/s/KTOP/index.htm or at watch parties throughout the city. What sounds like more fun than listening to Lynnette McElhaney over dinner!?

  3. Join the #DefundOPD social media campaign. Our pictures have traveled across our social networks as the hashtag picks up steam. We encourage all of you to get involved! All it takes is a smartphone and five minutes:

      1. Make your own sign saying what Oakland City Council should prioritize instead of more police (or print a PDF version from www.defundopd.org/memo)

      2. Take a picture of your sign!

      3. Post it to social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) with hashtags #DefundOPD and #oakmtg

      4. Link this Thunderclap page

      5. Tag at least one council member, and at least 3 friends - tell your friends to take their own picture and pass it along!

#DefundOPD by the Anti Police-Terror Project
@APTPaction

Defund OPD is a committee of the Anti Police-Terror Project. Our mission is to reduce the Oakland Police Department's bloated budget by 50% and reinvest that money into community-based programs run by civilians that will protect and strengthen our communities.

We envision free mental health clinics, trained mediators and social workers who are able to respond to emergencies, EMS & Fire Departments that are not tied to the police force, and so much more.
