Thank you for being one of the 15,000 people who have signed to hold Mayor Durkan accountable! Once again Mayor Durkan has gone on the record against Defunding SPD. We must continue to advocate for the demands from our Black community organizations to
- reinvest in community needs like mental health support, and
- release all protesters,
Take action today to let Mayor Durkan know that she must #DefundSPD or get out of the way for someone who will.
Please take action TODAY by emailing, calling, and tweeting Mayor Jenny Durkan to ask her to Defund SPD, to meet the community demands to reinvest in community health programs, and to release protesters. She needs to hear from you!

The time to defund the Seattle Police department is now. You have failed to stop SPD from engaging in violence against its residents. Despite announcing a 30-day ban on the use of tear gas, the Seattle Police Department targeted peaceful protesters time and time again with pepper spray, flash bangs, and chemical weapons in Capitol Hill. Your actions so far have failed to protect the safety of our communities, specifically our Black community, the homeless, and peaceful protesters, and have violated the accepted standards of our community by excusing and defending violent tactics.
As a Seattle resident and your constituent, I ask you to commit to defunding the Seattle Police Department, reinvest in community services, and release all protesters. Our communities, particularly our Black and brown communities, are not safe from police brutality unless you do so. If you are unwilling, please resign because we need a mayor who listens to the community.

Hello, my name is <<Your Name>> and I am calling from <<Your Neighborhood or District>>.
