Join the Party for Socialism and Liberation, Indy10 Black Lives Matter, Indy SURJ, ANSWER Indiana, and others to demand a stop to Proposal No. 182, which would give $1.5 million more to IMPD.

We need you to show up to protest at 6pm on July 12, after which we’ll march to the City-County Council to voice our opposition there. RSVP and share on facebook! We demand they Defund IMPD and Fund Black Indy!

Background

The Indianapolis Public Safety and Criminal Justice Committee approved Proposal No. 182 in its meeting June 9, even as the majority of the public statements delivered by community leaders denounced the proposal. It’s significant that the Committee unanimously passed the proposal, showing the bi-partisan support for racist IMPD terror. It seems they’ve forgotten the mass uprisings last year when the people unequivocally demanded to DEFUND the IMPD! You can read more about the proposal and the history of the struggle so far here.

The fight isn’t over, and we can still win!
