Milwaukee, WI - On September 9, Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) at UW-Milwaukee, in conjunction with chapters across the country, held a day of action demanding justice for victims of police violence. The day of action consisted of a call and email campaign to pressure Chancellor Mark Mone to adhere to the demands of SDS.

SDS is calling for a defunding of the campus police, which has a budget of $3 million, making it the highest in the UW system. This entails a hiring freeze of campus police, demilitarization and a repurposing of campus police assets.
