Organizing During Covid-19 & Against Police Brutality


Organizing during Covid-19: panels & events on the landscape today. as well as our own chapter work in this new environment.

In light of the police brutality fueling protests across the country, many DSA members are demanding politicians defund the police and invest in public services instead. In the last few weeks, we have already seen state and local budgets get slashed for housing, healthcare, and education, while budgets for police and prisons remain intact and even increased.

Several of our chapter members have suggested pursuing a campaign to defund police and fund public services in North NJ. Due to this growing interest in such a campaign, our COVID committee is working on all things related to this proposal at our upcoming June meetings.
