CITY COUNCIL DISTRICT 9
WAKE UP ATLANTA.
A BETTER CITY IS POSSIBLE!
This year, our city has experienced the dangerous consequences of disconnected city leaders that fail to champion the needs of everyday people and have only responded to our crises (many that they created) by doubling down on gentrification, mass incarceration, and public safety policies that harm Black and Brown people, the poor, the working class, the formerly incarcerated, and LGBTQ people.
The status quo leadership isn’t keeping Atlanta safe. We’ve tried it the old way and it's NOT working, but Atlanta’s west side has proven over and over again that we have the answers to transform this city.
WAKE UP ATLANTA! We are stronger when we realize that our city doesn’t have a crime problem, but does have a poverty problem. WAKE UP ATLANTA! We are smarter when we grab the keys to the city from the powerful and put it in the hands of the people. WAKE UP ATLANTA! We are better off when we reject racist policing, mass incarceration, corruption, and corporate greed. WAKE UP ATLANTA! The police can’t save us, but affordable, resource rich, and healthy communities can.
A better future is possible but we have to commit to housing as a human right, commit to taking radical action on ending generational poverty, and commit to guaranteeing every young person in Atlanta a good job or opportunity to build a business in this city as means of staying out of trouble and building generational wealth.
A better Atlanta is possible. We just have to fight for it. It's time to wake up!
