COP CITY:  Today, the private Atlanta Police Foundation is seeking to build a militarized police training site known as “Cop City.” Police from all over the country would be trained in repressive tactics used most often against communities of color. Cop City would also host police exchanges with Israel and other foreign governments with a history of human rights violations and brutality against civilians.  

The construction of Cop City would destroy much of the city's largest urban forest, warming nearby majority Black neighborhoods by as much as 10 degrees. Similar projects are being considered in other cities.  

Private sector corporations—which are not accountable to the public—are funding the Atlanta Police Foundation as well as other private police foundation projects.  

Send a message to their CEOs today! And urge them to stay out of policing our communities.
