Kulkarni Poverty Q3

Published by Paola Avendano on

In Southern California, we need much better public schools, universal healthcare and rent control. Local governments should not put additional funding into prisons, juvenile facilities or law enforcement (that conducts racial profiling, widespread surveillance and assists ICE in detaining and deporting immigrants), but should instead pay for proactive measures that genuinely help low-income people and people of color. City and county governments need to require disaggregation of all public data so that the public can see how each ethnic community is doing vis-a-vis white communities.
