Town Hall: Community Investment, Not Community Police Recap

Next we turn to a town hall called “Community Investment, Not Community Police” put on by the Sanctuary for Independent Media and co-sponsored by Troy Coalition of Black Leaders, NAACP Troy Branch, YWCA of the Greater Capital Region, The Justice Center of Rensselaer County, Equality for Troy, and the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists. This recap was produced by Elizabeth Press.

That was Jessica Ashley. Other speakers we heard from in this segment include Diamond Owens, Jerry Ford Jr., Colin Donnaruma and D. Colin. The vote to add more police will take place at the City Council meeting Thursday, May 6, 2021. Community members can sign up to make a statement before the vote. Also, AdHoc Troy created a petition to get more community engagement www.change.org/community-not-police
