Take action, Prince George’s County! Last year, the Maryland General Assembly created the Community Repair and Reinvestment Fund (HB 837). From the recreational marijuana market, at least 35% of the state tax revenue will be used to repair, heal, and reinvest into the communities that have been most harmed by the dangerous “war on drugs.”
Now, Prince George’s has the chance to create a Board that centers reparations when deciding how to distribute these funds.
The dangerous and racist “war on drugs” drove the mass incarceration and over-policing of Black and Brown people for decades. Urge your Councilmember to help fix this by creating an ordinance in Prince George’s County that centers reparations in the local Community Reparations and Reinvestment Fund.
