City Programming: How would you distribute funding between departments that provide a direct service to the community? $100

Police violence and brutality across the country has clearly demonstrated that it's not just a few bad apples, it's the entire system. It is essential to move toward abolishing policing as we know it and to rebuild a system from the ground up that supports BIPOC in Tucson. It definitely doesn't make sense for mental health support and victim services to fall under policing, because these situations are much better handled by people who are trained specifically in those areas, and many Police calls that end in death are mental health calls.

Economic Initiatives should focus on supporting small businesses affected by COVID

The city budget should be allocated to fund the community: supporting water conservation, roads, but mostly things like mental health services, rent assistance, helping pay for local transportation for those who make less than a threshold, etc. This is community money and it should go to benefiting the actual community.

There is ample evidence that stable housing and economic development reduces crime - NOT police action. The police need to stop operating like they are the military - they are supposed to be protecting the public, not flying expensive helicopters and paying officers to sit on roofs with guns during peaceful protests. Defund the police, reinvest in economic and sustainability initiatives. Let's make Tucson a leader in a new, antiracist USA.

Mental health support and victim services are not exclusively police issues to solve. Licensed therapists, caretakers, and professionals who went to school in things like social work or psychology are more equipped to deescalate violent, domestic disputes. Yoga and wellness are huge reasons why people move to Tucson in the first place, so why can't these resources be more available. They would be community-sourced.

Please answer the following questions related to the participatory budget tool you just used.



Do you have any comments for the City on this tool or method of communication with the community?
A table breakdown of departments and their % of the proposed budget would be more intuitive.
Clearly denote if you're wanting constituents to place percentages of overall, restricted or programmed budget.

DEFUND THE POLICE AND INVEST IN COMMUNITIES

The science is clear--bloated police funds do not lead to safer communities. Tucson needs to invest significantly more in communities, infrastructure and environmental stewardship.
