The City of Atlanta is funding $90 million “Cop City” despite overwhelming community opposition,
destroying up to 380 acres of the Weelaunee Forest in the process.
In order to fund and build out Cop City, the Atlanta Police Foundation and Atlanta public officials require investors and contractors.
The City of Atlanta approved and is funding the Atlanta Police Foundation’s $90 million “Cop City”, where
police will be trained on how to inflict militant violence on their communities, destroying up to 380 acres of
precious Atlanta forest to do so. Coined as the “lungs of Atlanta” by the city government, the Weelaunee
forest is crucial to the overall health of the surrounding, majority Black, community. Additionally, the
increased police presence in this neighborhood poses a genuine danger to the community given policing trends
in Black communities. It’s no surprise that the vast majority of Atlanta residents are against Cop City.
Atlanta police already murdered Manuel Terán, also known as Tortuguita, for defending these forests, proving yet again that Cop City is not created for the safety and service of the community.

In order to fund and build out Cop City, the Atlanta Police Foundation and Atlanta public officials require investors and contractors. We have the power to use digital disruption to call on these groups to stop the project.
By clicking below, you can send an automatically generated email to either the funders, contractors, or local
officials urging them to remove their support for the project. Not only will these stakeholders feel widespread
national social pressure, but they will be unable to conduct regular day-to-day operations until they cease
support for Cop City.
(Disclaimer: Expect to get some of the emails bounced back as stakeholders close off their inboxes)
