The People’s Plan and allied organizations warn Eric Adams’ proposed budget cuts will harm working New Yorkers; urge Council to ensure #NoMoreCuts
“By breaking the promise of universal 3-K while at the same time allowing the NYPD and DOC to maintain their bloated budgets, Mayor Adams shows how deeply he has failed New Yorkers on his campaign promise to ‘educate not incarcerate’.”
“The council should reject these disruptive and unnecessary mid-year cuts, reaffirm the promise of universal 3-K, and tell Mayor Adams to focus on fixing the administrative rot that has decimated city agencies during his first year in office.”
The People’s Plan is a collective vision for a City that provides dignity, care, and justice for all New Yorkers. It offers the priorities of hundreds of organizers and advocates through a comprehensive, multi-issue roadmap around housing, anti-criminalization, education, economy, climate, transit, and health. The intent of The People’s Plan is to set the agenda for a racially and socially just city and provide a clear people-centered mandate for 2022 and beyond.
