The People's Coalition (TPC) is a group of individuals who are passionate about justice. There are many ways you can support this mission - attending an event, giving towards the bail fund, or becoming an ally or member.
Membership is open to those who care about Black struggles in Aurora, IL. Active members attend meetings, work with committees, and have voting privileges. (Members may not represent or work for political candidates.)
Allies are people who also care about Black struggles, but are not able to commit at a membership level. They may attend public meetings and support TPC causes & events, but may not participate on committees or vote.
The past few years the City of Aurora has seen an increase in funding for the Aurora Police Department (APD) and a simultaneous cut in funding of the Youth and Senior Services Subdivision (YSS).
APD’s 2020 budget was 16% of the overall budget, now they have increased its allocation to nearly 20% of the 2021 budget.
Sign this petition to support a reduction of the proposed 2021 APD budget and instead invest and support our Youth and Seniors Service department.
