The Concerned City Workers - LA is an unaffilated group of current and former Los Angeles City Employees. We are outraged by the brutality perpetrated by LAPD during the recent protests against police violence, and by the Mayor and City Council’s refusal to heed community calls for a just budget. We acknowledge that a reallocation of funds would support departments that provide essential services that have been identified for budget cuts this year. The Mayor and the City Council must act immediately on four key demands to live up to the progressive values we believe in.
