Ash-Lee Woodard Henderson, co-executive director of the Highlander Center, says the poll results reinforce what people are seeing and hearing from Black people on the ground.

“When I think about the current demand around defunding the police, and where Black people are lining up, I don’t feel surprised because there are hundreds of thousands of Black people in this country that believe that we should be divesting from police and investing in Black futures,” said Woodard Henderson. “We sometimes get tiny concessions through piecemeal legislation, regardless of which party it comes from. And what we know is that those are 2014 solutions to a 2020 problem.” Daily Kos reports.
