Ben & Jerry’s Defunding The Police Illustration.

For those who don’t understand what defunding the police really means, Ben & Jerry’s is here to shed some light. The brand whipped up an ice cream illustration to easily show how the money currently being used to fund the police could be distributed to build stronger and safer communities.

The illustration–which is part of an extensive blog post the brand published recently–shows a big bowl of ice cream with a ton of scoops in it that represent the United States police budget of $115 billion.

A hand is shown scooping ice cream out of that bowl into five other smaller bowls that represent affordable housing, job training, education, mental health counseling, and substance abuse treatment.
