What would you do with $100 Million dollars? #NoNewNYPD
Commissioner Bill Bratton, Speaker Melissa Mark Viverito and some members the New York City Council want to spend around $100M on 1,000 more cops. (The known NYPD Budget is currently 4.7 Billion Dollars)
The Safety Beyond Policing campaign is comprised of New Yorkers who do not want NYC to invest in hiring more police officers. Safer and healthier neighborhoods are strengthened by addressing poverty. This can only happen by truly investing into these communities--not throwing cops at the problem. We are motivated by love, justice and dignity.
