San Francisco Defunding The Police By $120 Million

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

San Francisco Mayor London Breed released a fiscal plan this week that would divert $120 million from the city’s law enforcement funding to an initiative to help Black communities.

The plan, known as The Dream Keeper Initiative, will use the funds over the next two years to invest in youth development, guaranteed income, business support, a city employment pipeline, training and homeownership, amongst other initiatives.

“We know that to actually see true lasting change we need to focus on helping entire families — from early education for kids, to job training and workforce support for their parents, and serve communities that have been systematically harmed by past policies,” Breed said in a statement Thursday.
