Thank you to everyone who emailed The Fort Lauderdale Commissioners calling on them to #DefundThePolice / Fort Lauderdale Police Department by 10 million dollars during their next meeting this upcoming Tuesday, June 16th at 6:00pm.
Now we need people who are available to speak during the meeting. We want to prioritize people who live in Fort Lauderdale and came to our action on Sunday, May 31st in downtown Fort. Lauderdale, especially people who witnessed the violence that FLPD committed on peaceful and non-violent protesters.
Here is the step by step process for filling out a speaker card. Also if you are not speaking but want to support in other ways such as making phone calls to commissioners, participating in our twitter storm or supporting our #DefundBSO campaign go directly to this link bit.ly/donedyingnowdefund.
