SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — Santa Barbara city leaders promised Black Lives Matter Santa Barbara, now called Healing Justice, that they would review the police budget.
The promise came after a Black Lives Matter rally in response to the death of George Floyd. Floyd was killed while a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on Floyd's neck.
Tuesday the city’s finance committee will hold a budget meeting at 11:30 a.m.
Staff is expected to talk about following up on those promises to Healing Justice during the meeting.
The agenda includes developing a path to develop an African American Community Center as well as a resource allocation study.
