Signs for a Just Budget

Start: Friday, July 24, 2020 2:00 PM Central Daylight Time (US & Canada) (GMT-05:00)

End: Saturday, August 08, 2020 6:00 PM Central Daylight Time (US & Canada) (GMT-05:00)

This is a virtual event

Join UWSA by putting a sign in your window or yard to show your support for a just budget in Austin! As white members of the Austin community, we are demonstrating that we support the demands to defund the Austin Police Department, and fund communities instead.

    • Make signs for your yard or window this weekend

    • Send a photo of you with your sign to your council member

    • Post picture on social media (if you use social media)

If you would like to pick up poster materials from a location in your City Council District on Saturday morning, we'll send you an address. If you have materials at home (recycle and reuse!) that will work too.

Here are the messages:

  • Fund Communities Not Policing

  • Defund APD by 50%

  • D# for Defunding APD

  • Fund R.E.A.L. Solutions (RISE Fund, Equity Office, Austin Public Health, Low-income housing)

When you put your sign up, take a photo and send it to your City Council member! Post it to social media using the hashtag #FundCommunityNotPolicing - and don't forgot to tag us! (Facebook, Twitter)
