New Survey Finds Broad Support Among Black Americans for Defunding Police
FEATURING DR. AMARA ENYIA - A new survey by the Movement for Black Lives (M4BL) shows broad support among Black Americans for defunding police and refunding alternatives to policing. The survey, conducted in collaboration with GenForward at the University of Chicago, specifically shows that “Sixty-seven percent of Black Americans support reallocating part of police budgets toward investments in health care, education, and housing, and other areas, while 55% support divestment from police departments and allocating entire police budgets toward such investments.” At a time when media coverage of the racial justice demands from summer 2020 has waned, the study renews the urgency of reimagining the institutions that cause racial violence and harm.
