March to Defund the Police … And Invest in Our Schools Tuesday, June 16, 10am @Miguel Contreras Learning Complex

By |June 15th, 2020|All Bargaining Units, People-Powered Politics|

As we put our demands for racial justice into action, SEIU Local 99 is firmly in support of defunding the police. But, to be clear, defunding the police does not mean eliminating the police. It means defunding the policies and practices that criminalize our children and promote the school to prison pipeline. It means no guns or handcuffs or choke holds on our children. It means more investment in education, counseling, parent engagement, after school programs and other services that have been decimated over the last several decades – with dire consequences on Black and Brown communities. Join us as we rally with Black Lives Matter-LA and other groups standing strong for justice and equity!

On Monday, June 15, education workers across the country are calling their Senators to urge them to pass the HEROES Act. Stand-up, SEIU Local 99 Members, and join the chorus!
