As we dream and scheme about how to redress harms caused by the 1994 Crime Bill, it is important to understand how money flows from the federal government to states and localities. How are different amounts of money allocated? Who decides what programs and offices will be funded? When and where can residents, organizers, and advocates intervene in this process to help stop funding harmful programs and make sure funds are invested in safety? Join us for our teach-in on how federal funding flows and get answers to these questions and more.
