Letter to House Committee on Appropriations: Cut UASI funding!

As our communities mourn the lives lost in the mass shooting at Pulse queer club's Latinx night this weekend, we affirm our struggle for a safety beyond hate and militarism. As politicians and ideologues of various stripes manipulate this tragedy, we remember the refrain: "our grief is not a cry for war." We refuse to allow the deaths of those in Orlando to justify increased police presence in our communities across the country. Today, WRL and AFSC, joined by thirty-two other civil liberties, religious, and peace and social justice groups called on the House Appropriations Committee to maintain the President’s cut to Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI) funding as a “step in the right direction.”
