Today Marlihan Lopez, a member of BLM-MTL, is telling us why we should defund the SPVM and reinvest in our communities to prevent violence against women. Did you know 2/3rds of survivors of sexual assault say they do not trust the criminal justice system and the police? The criminal legal system often re-victimizes complainants and does not keep us safe. Marlihan knows that if we redirect funds to our communities and transformative justice initiatives, we can support healing and mental health and respond to gender-based violence in our society.
