Take Action for a #NYCBudgetJustice

Mayor Eric Adams' proposed FY25 budget includes significant staffing and budget cuts to crucial agencies, services, and infrastructure – cuts that undermine the foundation of safe and thriving cities. At the same time, the mayor has included $11.9 billion in police spending--virtually fully restored the staffing and budget of the NYPD--and has plans for $225M+ capital project to build a Cop City mega-police training facility in Queens.

#NYCBudgetJustice campaign is a call to action for our city leaders to reject the mayor's bloated NYPD budget and build real public safety through investments in infrastructure and community safety solutions.

Victory! City Council Overrides Mayor Adams' Veto of Intro 586

Thanks to citywide organizing led by those most impacted by the NYPD’s abusive practices – and the leadership of City Council Speaker Adrienne Adams and lead sponsors Public Advocate Jumaane Williams, Council Member Alexa Avilés and Council Member Crystal Hudson – the City Council passed the How Many Stops Act at the end of 2023 with broad support.
