About LVDSA's Abolitionist and Community Safety Campaign

The Abolitionist and Community Safety Campaign will not accept reforms that reinforce the state’s or prison-industrial complex powers, will actively oppose any increase in law enforcement spending in state, county, or local budgets, and will call for allocating law enforcement funds to alternatives that actually assist people and promote community safety, such as housing initiatives and community services.
