Dallas City Council will vote on a new city budget September 23. TOP and In Defense of Black Lives Dallas are demanding that the budget invests less in policing and more in building up our communities with needed resources and services.
The chair of the city’s Public Safety Committee, Councilman Adam McGough of District 10 needs to hear from us that we need to divest from policing, and INVEST in our community!
If you’re a Dallas resident, call Councilman McGough at his office at 214-670-4068 to share why it matters to you that we #DefundDPD and invest more in the community.
For more information on how you can get involved in this campaign, call or text Carvell Bowens at 972-997-1026.
While the deadline for the Census is uncertain, don’t risk losing your chance to be counted.
In addition to not having the representation we deserve in Congress, for each person that is not counted, our cities, counties and schools miss out on as much as $10,000. That’s $10,000 that won’t go to funding services that benefit our families and communities.
Don’t wait until the last minute. Go to my2020census.gov to fill out the nine simple Census questions in your preferred language. Your immigration status does not matter; there are no questions on citizenship. Be counted!
