ACT 4 SA Action Fund is dedicated to reimagining public safety and shrinking the carceral system (both policing and prisons). Through grassroots lobbying, we move community members and decision makers alike to take direct action in creating a more accountable, compassionate, and transparent public safety system that truly values justice and equity for all in San Antonio and across Bexar County.
State legislation has a direct effect on local policy regarding public safety. Although the next state legislative sessions do not occur until January 2023 and January 2025, the work must begin months ahead of session. This includes identifying bills to either support or fight against, identifying and recruiting allies to our cause in the state legislature, and joining a coalition of organizations, stakeholders, and community members to fight alongside. ACT 4 SA Action Fund will work through grassroots and direct lobbying efforts to demand that the people in power act on the needs of the community, especially those communities that are overpoliced- such as our BIPOC communities.
