Grassroots Law Project Defund the Police Series Meeting 2 – August 6, 2020, at 1 pm Via Zoom

LOCAL GRASSROOTS LAW PROJECT ORGANIZERS WILL HOST MEETING WITH TEMPE MAYOR COREY WOODS & COUNCIL MEMBERS LAUREN KUBY AND DOREEN GARLID AUGUST 6, 2020 TO DISCUSS DEFUNDING TEMPE POLICE STRATEGY

The Grassroots Law Project has initiated a Defund the Police campaign for the Phoenix Metro and surrounding areas. Why? Because Tempe police are notoriously some of the most violent in the Valley, often killing mentally ill individuals (ie: Dalvin Hollins).

Officers don’t get the training nor do they have the tools to deal with mental health services, yet they are the 1st responders in most cases–Nationally, about 1/2 of police killings involve someone with a mental illness.

Check out our full policy briefer at http://glp-az.justanother.com/ detailing the many reasons why reallocating budget money from the long over-funded police and funneling that money into community resources is a must.

This meeting is the second meeting in the series and is with Mayor Corey Woods & Council Members Lauren Kuby and Doreen Garlid on Aug 6 at 1:00 pm on Zoom.

Event Date: August 4, 2020 – 1:00 pm – Vice Mayor Betty Guardado District 5 – Online Via Zoom

Grassroots Law Project Defund the Police Series Meeting 1 – August 4, 2020, at 1 pm Via Zoom

LOCAL GRASSROOTS LAW PROJECT ORGANIZERS WILL HOST MEETING WITH VICE MAYOR BETTY GUARDADO ON AUGUST 4, 2020 TO DISCUSS DEFUNDING PHOENIX POLICE STRATEGY

The Grassroots Law Project has initiated a Defund the Police campaign for the Phoenix Metro and surrounding areas. Why? Because in Phoenix, 3 out of 4 times the police pull out a gun it is on Black, Brown, or Indigenous people.

Officers don’t get the training nor do they have the tools to deal with mental health services, yet they are the 1st responders in most cases–Nationally, about 1/2 of police killings involve someone with a mental illness.

Check out our full policy briefer at http://glp-az.justanother.com/ detailing the many reasons why reallocating budget money from the long over-funded police and funneling that money into community resources is a must.

This first meeting in the series is with Vice Mayor Betty Guardado of Phoenix District 5.
