JULY 9th: 2pm
SF Board of Supervisors’ Rules Committee meeting is on July 9th at 2PM.
Support the charter amendment to remove the minimum staffing requirement and defund & disband the SFPD! In 1994—a time when our country’s politicians labeled Black and Brown children “Super-Predators”— the voters of San Francisco passed a charter amendment to set a minimum police staffing level of 1,971 officers.
The upcoming SF Board of Supervisors’ Rules Committee meeting is our first opportunity to support the charter amendment to remove the minimum staffing requirement, and get it on the ballot in November. Making your voice heard via public comment will only take a few minutes.
