Dear Memphis City Councilors,
My name is [NAME] and I am a resident of [NEIGHBORHOOD]. I am asking to redirect money away from the Memphis PD and into the following social services and community needs:
- Community Development and Job Creation;
- COVID Relief during this crisis and long-term healthcare;
- Child Care;
- Parks & Recreation.
I request that an emergency meeting be called before the fiscal year goes into effect in order to deny the mayor’s proposed budget and reallocate these funds to resources that promote equity and community well-being for Memphis residents.
Thank you for your time,
