Upcoming Rally - Invest In Communities, Not Cops

YGB raising awareness and building community

Upcoming Rally - Invest In Communities, Not Cops

Friday May 13 at 3pm
404 E Main St.

This Friday, many of Madison's freedom fighters, including Freedom Inc., Groundwork, the No Dane County Jail Working Group, YGB, and the Madison community, will be coming together for a rally to protest the one year anniversary of the non-indictment of Madison Police Officer Matt Kenny.
Kenny abused his authority as a police officer last year when he heartlessly murdered Tony Robinson, a boy who was in need of help, not execution. It is clear that the Madison Police have too much of a negative presence in the lives of our Black community members.
So that's why it's alarming that the MPD is about to spend $5 million per year in taxpayer money to hire 40 new police officers. This is not needed in Madison - cities with a similar population and crime rate to Madison function properly with 60 less officers than the MPD currently has, but yet we're still adding more.
Instead of increasing the amount of community-controlling police presence, we should be spending the $5 million on real community concerns, such as investing in Black mental health and providing economic empowerment programs to impoverished and marginalized Black neighborhoods. 'Build the people, not the jails!"
If you think that the Madison government and police department should listen to the needs of their own people, make sure to join the rally, this Friday at 3pm, at Cathedral Park.
