Lack of proper shelter puts at risk children's safety, legal protections and their due process.<br><br>The federal government did not inform City of Phoenix officials of U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement plans to detain migrant children in private hotels.<br><br>I thank Mayor Kate Gallego for her leadership and quick action, requesting the federal government brief city officials, as well as requesting the State of Arizona investigate any possible violations.<br><br>Children deserve to be cared for in safe environments, and Phoenix will not stand for their mistreatment."<br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district3Newsdistrict-3District 3DebraStark

Wearing a face covering is a step we can take to help slow the spread in our communities. We all play a role in public health – not only to protect ourselves, but others. <br><br>I urge everyone to also continue taking other precautions, including washing their hands often, staying home when sick, and physically distancing themselves in public, whenever possible."<br><br>For more information on the city's Face Covering Fact Sheet, visit: <a href="/newsroom/em-and-hs/1353?fbclid=IwAR3WlR_GB3GcsM-TGQoJPUZJJ2pYJEh9ZrUKEoadghDJUkvxBOSgOvhH0mY" target="_blank">https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/em-and-hs/1353</a><br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district3Newsdistrict-3District 3DebraStark
Councilwoman Stark’s Statement on Yesterday’s Budget Votehttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/district-3/1329City Council District 36/10/2020 2:30:00 AMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1329/Newsroom_Council_Statement_03.jpgCouncilwoman Stark’s Statement on Yesterday’s Budget Vote<div class="ExternalClass3AB5A670325C4F6C820E37AE9C11FBD5"><html>​“Over the last couple weeks, I have heard the voices of thousands of people from all walks of life who are hurting. I want to thank them for sharing their stories and experiences, as it helped inform my vote Monday regarding Phoenix's budget. I am proud that the Council came together to approve a balanced budget—one that fully funds our Police Department and the new Office of Accountability and Transparency and the Community Review Board. <br><br>I am committed to help make Phoenix's OAT and CRB the best in the nation, as Council develops the plans and policies, approves ordinances, appoints community members, and the City Manager's Office conducts a search for an executive director. Although that process will take some time, fully funding the office now signifies that Phoenix is serious about promoting trust, accountability, and progress.<br><br>I am grateful to our first responders and law enforcement for the job they do—an often-thankless job—while putting their lives on the line every day. I also heard from their families and other residents who support our police officers and funding for the department.<br><span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;"><br>I look forward to the continued dialogue that is happening in our city and nationwide as we strive to make a better community for all."</span><span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">​</span><br><p><br></p></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district3Newsdistrict-3District 3DebraStark

His death was senseless and preventable. The anger and hurt we are seeing nationwide is justified—violence is never okay. Let us remain peaceful and recognize the humanity in one another by truly listening. Let us fight against the racism and privilege that exist today—not against the many men and women who work to keep the peace and put their lives on the line every day. I know Phoenix can be an example."<br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district3Newsdistrict-3District 3DebraStark
