Defund OPD Lake Merritt Flyering Party
July 18, 2020
We have one last chance this year to Defund OPD, and we will be flyering this weekend to raise the visibility of this fight in Oakland.
We will meet outside of Lake Chalet near their front doors at 12:00 pm. Flyers and supplies will be provided, plan to bring water, sunscreen and wear a mask. Do not come if you are feeling sick or running a fever.
In case you missed it, the so-called "Equity Caucus" of the Oakland City Council rammed through a mid-cycle city budget that only shaved off less than 1% of the Oakland Police Department budget - a drop in the bucket of $250 million that should go towards refunding of services, housing, education, mental health services, and other social welfare programs that enhance Black lives and communities.
Councilmember Kaplan brought back the Oakland City budget for a vote to reconsider defunding the police.
