Reimagining Public Safety in Contra Costa

ACCE and our coalition partners waged a successful campaign around the Contra Costa County Budget to win $5 million dollars for rental assistance and tenant legal services to serve low-income families in Contra Costa. After our successful fight for Measure X in 2020 we were successful in getting the County to invest $80,000 in a feasibility study to create an African American Wellness and Resource Hub in Contra Costa County, and $1 million from the county to go toward resources for the Black community in Contra Costa County. In Antioch we have waged a successful campaign for police accountability and reform of the Antioch Police Department after more than half of their police officers were involved in a text group where they shared racist, sexist and homophobic messages and images.
