Investing in Safety We Can Feel Campaign

The Investing in Safety We Can Feel Campaign is an effort to create a Philadelphia where investments in public safety means investments into what our communities deserve and need to thrive: fully funded quality education, housing, healthcare and treatment, and transformative solutions to harm, free from policing and cages. The campaign is led by a collective of organizations that are fighting against violent policing and the criminalization of Black and brown folks, for a vibrant multiracial working class, affordable housing, progressive taxation, thriving and safe immigrant communities, and to bring home our people who are languishing in prisons and jails.

We know that real safety will always be out of grasp for our communities if officials continue to invest in the harmful institution of policing. But we also know that Philadelphia can be a city where everyone can thrive if we make a commitment to investing in human needs and divest from punishment.
