Defund Surveillance

The Defund Surveillance working group focuses on LAPD’s budget process, community research, and popular education. The working group, in partnership with activist group Free Radicals, was started in June 2020 in response to the continuing increase in LAPD’s annual budget despite the overwhelming demand to defund LAPD. Since then we have successfully sued the LAPD to obtain budget documents over the last dozen years. These documents are currently being analyzed in partnership with the community. Additionally we released our Budget Creep Zine, a popular education tool to better understand the budget process.
