Heritage Action today announced their new “No Police, No Peace” billboards in New York City, Dallas, and Atlanta. Jessica Anderson, Executive Director of Heritage Action, first announced the billboards on Fox & Friends this morning.
“Americans want safety, security and a clear vision for how to quell the violence. I am excited to announce the launch of these billboards today because you cannot have peace without the police,” Anderson said. “These cities are facing rising violence, deep cuts to public safety, and the resignation of their top police officers. This is a time for all citizens and leaders to come together to support the important work and sacrifices of our law enforcement officers and push back against the Left’s campaign to defund the police.”
In New York City, the billboards are displayed in Times Square on 7th and 48th and Broadway and 44th; in Atlanta, one billboard stands across from CNN headquarters on Centennial Olympic Park Drive and Marietta St while the other is on Peachtree Rd E and Paces Ferry; in Dallas, the billboards stand downtown at Main St, off I-45, and on Cedar Springs Rd. Together, the billboards will reach a weekly audience of nearly 4 million, and will be displayed for two weeks.
Murders in New York were up nearly 50% in August compared to last year. The murder rate in Atlanta is up nearly 150% since protests started this summer. Dallas is on the way to hitting its highest murder rate in over a decade.
The billboards direct citizens to sign Heritage Action’s Police Pledge, which has already been signed by nearly 100,000 citizens, Former Ambassador Nikki Haley, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, and nearly 100 members of Congress, including House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy and senators such as Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, Rick Scott, and Tom Cotton. The pledge calls on Americans to “stand with America’s Police and pledge to oppose any bill, resolution, or movement to ‘Defund the Police.’”
“Now is the time for our elected officials at all levels of government to take a stand for peace and security over anarchy and chaos,” continued Anderson. “Supporting police is not partisan — it’s American. Lawmakers should push back against violent rhetoric and dangerous policies that would undermine our communities. Our law enforcement supports us every day, and it’s time we support them back.”
