In line with the call from the Movement for Black Lives, we demand that both public and private universities and colleges across the country take action and divest from police, immediately.
Institutions of Higher Education have historically followed in the footsteps of national government, which has shown a lack of investment in Black communities while overly investing in the disregard of Black and brown lives. Instead of accepting dark-money donations from foundations and corporations who actively uphold white supremacy and profit from privatizing the prison industrial complex, schools must divest from police and invest budgets into local communities.
In the interest of public safety, particularly for Black students, faculty, and community members, we demand that schools cut ties with police and end the use of police officers on campus. Police and militarized college and university campuses do not keep us safe. We demand police free schools across the country.
