Protesters flooded the streets of Los Angeles again this weekend, many carrying signs and chanting slogans asking city leaders to "Defund the Police" and invest in "Care Not Cops."

Today the L.A. City Council's budget committee meets for the first time since the killing of George Floyd. Activists want to see major changes in how Angelenos' tax dollars are spent. We'll get a taste of what's in store at 2 p.m.
