Thrilled to participate in a rally and protest honoring George Floyd and all the other black men and women who came before him that were victims of police brutality. Great to see fellow 2017 candidate Akeem Browder. Today, I felt it was important to come out today to show support and solutions on how to address police violence — namely: #DeFundTheNYPD — which is not to abolish the police, but to reallocate $1 Billion dollars and put that towards communities of color.. In addition, there is a movement out there to usher in the #peoplesbudget, a budget that finds over $441 Billion dollars for healthcare, education, housing and social services. The People’s Budget from New York City activist group, Fight for NYCHA, would defund the NYPD by #2 Million dollars and re-allocate it to communities of color.
