LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The Kentucky Alliance Against Racist and Political Oppression continues to make a stand about their demands for change.
The group met Sunday to outline things they believe should change in the community including protesting peacefully in Jefferson Square Park. They allege officers in riot gear pushed them out of the area.
Group members also discussed support for partial de-funding of the police department.
“This discussion is not anti-police, but pro-citizen, pro-community. How can we spend our dollars wisely and make our community safer? Change must occur," Co-chair K.A. Owens said.
The Kentucky Alliance said action and change begin at the voting booth, calling on everyone to vote in the upcoming primary on Tuesday.
