The People's Budget is a collaborative effort to source meaningful cuts and reinvestments that reduce policing and meet our community needs. We're asking you to weigh in — all of the ideas here have been contributed by fellow community members, and we've love for you to add your own.
Feel free to read through and upvote cuts or re-investments that you support, and add your own suggestions. Keep in mind, this is open source, so we want data and justifications, but we reject the idea of "expertise". The people know best what we need!
Where should we cut the NYPD budget? What programs do you think need to go? How can we most effectively defund the NYPD? Here, we're looking for your specific suggestions and research!
How should we invest at least a billion dollars in our communities? Housing? Healthcare? Youth Services? What programs and services do we need?
