Action Steps for Invest/Divest Louisville

Action Steps

    Let Mayor Fischer know what he needs to do:
  1. Fire and revoke the pensions of the officers that murdered Breonna Taylor
  2. Resign!
  3. Call/email your Metro Council representative so they can:
  4. Demand Mayor Fischer to resign or impeach him
  5. Divest funding from LMPD and invest in the health and wellness needs of the community. We should decide what services we need. The only city leaders should be the Center for Health Equity and the Public Health department to help build the details of what is needed to thrive during COVID-19.
  6. Create a civilian oversight board w/ the power to subpoena, investigate, and discipline. This board MUST be independent from the Mayor’s Office and LMPD.
  7. Renegotiate the Collective Bargaining Agreement to remove any barriers to holding police accountable and reducing their budget for reinvestment
  8. Target investors and demand they support our demands
  9. Target Microsoft in a social media campaign focused on firing these offices and meeting demands
  10. Target other investors / philanthropists
  11. Call/email your state representatives so they can:
  12. Repeal the Blue Lives Matter Law
  13. Push for a state law that ensures that officers are penalized for abuse of power.
  14. Push for a statewide “Breonna’s Law,” completely banning no knock warrants and making room for no special circumstances. Push to include language that will hold officers accountable who do not follow the law.
