The Black Lives Matter movement has reawakened the struggle against racism. After the death of Freddie Gray Baltimore has become a national symbol of police abuse. The city has lost millions in settlements over the injuries and deaths of citizens by police.
● Reform our civilian review board so it has full powers over the police, including department policies and procedures.
● Invest in rehabilitation, education, and living-wage jobs, not the new youth jail.
● Open the books for a full audit of the $400 million/year Baltimore Police Department budget. We need real oversight and transparency over the largest portion of the city budget.
