Join us, and partner organizations, as we attend the December 13th City Council Special Meeting to encourage City Council to stand up to another police association contract that lacks true accountability, true civilian oversight, and true transparency.
This is a chance for the City of Austin's leadership to take a strong stance against a contract that is highly ineffective and very expensive. Contrary to some belief, if City Council chooses to boldly opt-out of this contract the road ahead is not at all uncertain. Saying «No» to the contract on December 13th affords the City of Austin new and innovative ways to pursue paths to things absent in the contract and it would also allow MILLIONS of dollar to become freed up to allocate to other avenues of public safety and interest.
We ask that you join us in signing up to speak on this agenda item and inform City Council it's ok to stand up against the police association and faulty contracts!
