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? This teach-in from the People’s Coalition for Safety and Freedom will address these important questions and discuss how federal funding flows.
