Local activists with Black Lives Matter are aligning with a national movement to “defund police,” a catchphrase for a new push to reallocate some public safety duties out of local police department budgets and into other social services. They also want to see education better funded, along with reforms in the criminal justice system and the health care system. Protests began several days after the death of George Floyd and have continued through the summer.
