AOC, Squad Funds BLM Group That Aims to Abolish Police, Prisons


As calls to abolish police become mainstream following the death of George Floyd in the custody of Minneapolis police, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) announced on Twitter that she, along with fellow Squad Representatives Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), raised $128,000 for a Black Lives Matter group with the goal of abolishing the police.

In late May, Ocasio-Cortez announced that she and the rest of the Squad raised $128,000 to be split between Black Visions Collective and Reclaim The Block.

Reclaim The Block is a Minneapolis group with the goal of petitioning City Council to “move money from the police department into other areas of the city’s budget.” The group is currently requesting those who would like to donate to it instead donate to other organizations.
