People’s Budget 604

Date : June 6, 2021

I was invited by the Defund 604 Network to help design the printed version of the People’s Budget Survey to hand out to folks to contribute to this important grassroots research initiative.

Around the world, communities are calling for public money to be divested from police and policing, and instead invested in building safe, healthy, and sustainable communities for everyone.

In Vancouver, over 340 million dollars ($340,901,000 to be exact) of public money per year is given to the Vancouver Police Department — representing twenty-one percent of the City of Vancouver’s operating expenditures.

The People’s Budget 604 Survey asks about your priorities for spending public money in the City of Vancouver.
