Portland City Budget Forum Mobilization

On Tuesday, April 3rd, and Tuesday, April 17th, members of the Care Not Cops: Mental Health Care, Not Policing campaign are mobilizing to an open community budget forum to demand that the Mayor and City Council Members formally reject the Portland Police Bureau’s request to increase their budget by $12.7

million in the next fiscal year!

We are demanding that mental health care be in the hands of community, and are calling for a reduction in police spending, allowing money that has gone into policing to go into services that address the needs of those who are most vulnerable in our communities. We unequivocally reject the Portland Police Bureau's request for a budget increase of $12.7 million in order to hire for 93 new police positions! More police does not mean more safety. We want funding for mental health services to be provided independent of the police budget, and for the PPB to freeze new hires. Join us to publicly make these demands of Mayor Ted Wheeler and the City Council!

Care Not Cops will be mobilizing to both of these budget forums, and hope you can join us! They are being held on Tuesday, April 3rd at the David Douglas High School South Cafeteria (*updated address*: 1500 SE 130th Ave, 97233), and April 17th at Roosevelt High School. On the 17th, come to our rally at 5pm, where we will be hearing from community speakers about our demands.

We are also organizing a carpool, to get as many of our allies there as possible! If you'd like to participate as a driver or passenger, please email: olivia.hasencamp@gmail.com
