The news comes just months after Bush announced the $10 billion proposal intended to transform public safety. The People’s Response Act would establish a division on community safety within the Department of Health and Human Services that would call upon nonpolice first responders for emergency situations stemming from mental health issues, substance use or other health or behavioral complications. The division would be tasked with funding and coordinating research and offering grant programs to promote “non-carceral, health-centered investments in public safety” on the state and local level.

This is the future that we deserve — and Ben & Jerry’s support of this bill shows the momentum we have towards making it a reality.”
