Students for a Democratic Society rally for CPAC, defund campus police
[Milwaukee, WI] – Students for a Democratic Society at UW-Milwaukee is hosting a rally on Friday, April 9, at 5:00 PM on campus at Spaights Plaza. The rally is to call for a Civilian Police Accountability Council (CPAC) in Milwaukee, and renew our call to defund the campus police and redistribute those funds to programs that actually support students.
As members of the CPAC coalition coordinated by the Milwaukee Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, we know that CPAC is the program we need to guarantee people have true control over the police. The FPC is undemocratic and does not answer to the people! To defund the police and end police crimes, we need CPAC now! CPAC is good for students because we live in Milwaukee and are often under the jurisdiction of MPD. We also do not want to defund the campus police only to face heightened MPD presence without any true accountability. We need CPAC now!
Students for a Democratic Society is a national, multi-issue progressive organization of student activists who fight for change on campus. The goal is to build a student movement that mobilizes students against crimes against the people committed here at home and on other peoples abroad. SDS at UW-Milwaukee is currently fighting to defund the campus police and redistribute those funds to programs and services that actually support students.
