Budget for Black Lives

Defund the Cook County Jail, Invest in Our Communities

Systems of policing and incarceration harm Black, Brown and poor communities.

Investing in people, not punishment, makes everyone safer.

By taking money away from the Cook County Jail, we can reduce harm and invest in the good jobs, mental health care, safe housing and resources that allow Black, Brown, and poor communities to thrive.
